We trekked here during the dry season so nothing to see but the trek was beautiful and the Khmu town nearby was interesting. We kayaked home which was great. Elephants on the shore.

Sad thing about Tad Sae is it's dry during hottest season like April or May. But still have some water runing down... you may feel a bit disappointed seeing a dry waterfall.
