Mae Yen Waterfall ‘The name is cool, but the water is warm.’
The Thai word ‘yen’ means ‘cool’ in English. But the water of this waterfall is not really cool. To be precise, it is quite warm and relaxing.
Mae Yen Waterfall is not very big, but it is a good waterfall in Pai County. It is located in the middle of woodland, which makes it look like some scenes in Disney cartoon like Bambi, Winnie the Pooh, The Fox and the Hound.
You will enjoy having a sightseeing there. You will want to have a good camera with you all the time. You don’t want to leave all beautiful scenery behind you. Beside, you should bring your own food to have a picnic. Eating sandwich, stir-fried rice in lunch box, friend fries, fruits, or something like these will be perfect.
You can also explore the woodland, but be careful. You should dress properly for this activity. You should wear shoes, trousers, or boots. You better not wear shorts or slipper, as you may get injured easily from rocks, branchs, and others.
There is a Lahu village nearby. You can go there and make a communication with those villagers. They are friendly, don’t be afraid. Try to talk to them and ask them how they are going. You can observe their lifestyles as your new knowledge.
Lastly, you can swim in the water sometimes. The water will be warm, as it is a hot spring waterfall. Now, many women and girls should love this, as hot water can beautify their skin. Don’t miss your chance of soaking yourself in there.
