Mok Fa Waterfall
Mok Fa Waterfall is located in lush tropical forest and is extremely beautiful and pure nature
Mok Fa Waterfall are a part of the Doi Suthep – Pui National Park. It is a one-level cascade standing over 60 meters tall it is impressive even in the late dry season, and is a great place for a swim and to cool off if you are making the journey between Chiang Mai and Pai.
The crystal clear water at the base is ideal for a refreshing swim on a hot day. From the park office you have a choice of two walking routes to the falls. Following the nature trail is highly recommended and not much further than the direct route. On the return follow the route by the river. Proceeding the main Mok Fa Waterfall you will encounter a smaller waterfall called Ob Noi flowing through a mini gorge. Apart from the beautiful waterfall, there is also Tham Mok Fa (Bat Cave), the habitat of bats and the nature trail for nature lovers to join a lot of activities such as swimming, camping, surveying the nature, and bird watching.
Mok Fa Waterfall is originated from the stream that runs from the thick wood and separates into two streams falling from the stone cliff. The area is full of large trees and plants like moss and fern and the moisture from the waterfall steam can also cool the air. The best time to visit this place is during the winter since the water is so clean and clear that the tourists can go swimming at the swamp below.
In the morning, the sunlight shines and reflects the white stream, causing a color of the rainbow sparking brilliantly. Green moss and fern always stick at the cliff. In the winter and the autumn, the waterfall provides different wonderful atmosphere, while in the rainy season, it is no less beautiful than any other time. The water runs more intensely and hits the cliff and the swamp below more loudly. The steam splashes and spreads everywhere, making all over the places look glorious with the white fog which leads to the name of the waterfall. If the tourists want to spend a night at the waterfall, a campsite and four houses are offered for them but the tourists should reserve the places or contact Doi Suthep-Doi Pui National Park in advance.
If you’re visiting Chiang Mai and want to try something tourists don’t get to do, Mok Fa waterfall is your answer.
How to get there
Mok Fa Waterfall is situated on the North Side of Doi Suthep – Pui National Park around 45km from Chiang Mai on route 1095 to Pai and Mae Hong Son. The Falls are actually situated a further couple of KM down a semi paved road but it is well signposted on route 1095. If you do not have your own transport then charter a car, tuk tuk or Songtaew in Chiang Mai. However due to the distance this may be a bit of a way to travel to view just the one waterfall. Mok Fa is actually situated on the Chiang Mai to Pai route so most visitors will be on their way to Pai or Mae Hong Son when they drop by.
