Why Huay Toh Waterfall is special ?

Huay To Waterfall, with its five-tiered cascades and pools, is Phanom Bencha's most popular attraction. Huay Toh waterfall is part of the Khao Phanom Bencha national park in Krabi. Khao Phanom is a 4000+ feet mountain that feeds the stream that forms this waterfall.


Huay Toh is at it’s most beautiful during the rainy season. If you come between August and October you’ll probably see it at it’s best. During the other months it’s also quite nice because it’s quiet and you can swim in one of the nice pools of water that collect.

What to explore at Huay Toh Waterfall?

Hiking is available to the peak – but only during the dry season from Jan to April. Problem is – it’s also the hot season and that’s quite a climb!

There are a number of levels to the waterfall. and originates from the Kao Panom Mountains in Tambon Tap Prik. There are lots of large pools where tourists can enjoy swimming in each level with its own name, such as Wang Sam Hap, Wang Chong Loi, Wang Doi Prong, Wang Thewada, and Wang Ton Phrio. Huay Toh Waterfall is the attractive place to go there.

This five-tier waterfall in Phanom Bencha National Park has swimming pools at all five levels, and is one of the biggest in Krabi province, even in the dry season. You can either take a gentle stroll up to levels one or two, or a much stiffer hike up to one of the higher levels, where a beautiful panorama opens up.

A footbridge crosses the creek just before reaching the first of the five tiers of plunging water and it provides the first good vantage point from which to view the falls. It is possible to sunbathe on a little sandy beach at the base of the crystal clear pools and watch butterflies rise on the updrafts.

Huge emergent trees tower 40 metres above the lush cool green of the surrounding forest and are accompanied by the soothing sounds of songbirds and cicadas.

How to get to Huay Toh Waterfall?

Huay Toh Waterfall is located outside of Krabi town about 25km or so. It’s an excellent motorbike ride to get out there and highly recommended. The Krabi Eco Tour bicycle place has tours there if you feel like riding the 20km out to the waterfall – on a paved road.

Renting a car is another option for you. Drive to Huay To Waterfall and Tiger Cave Temple very easily with the help of a GPS provided by the Car rental Company (http://krabidir.com/pjkrabicarrent/) From Krabi town travel up Uttaradit Road away from town. Pass many lights and reach an intersection with Highway 4. Make a right. Keep an eye on your left for a sign that says “Huai To or Huai Toh” and shows a picture of a waterfall. It’s a blue sign with white waterfall image. Make a left at the indicated road. The waterfall is at the end of that road – 20km away. There is a cool Buddhist temple on your left about 7km up the road called “Wat Tum Sang Phet”. If you stop and visit you can go inside the caves along the right side of the temple. Cool place for photos. At the end of the road you’ll see the gate and guard house where you pay your fee before you park.

We went on a half day trip to the Huay toh Waterfall and an hour elephant trekking. It was lovely and cost about 800 baht each. We thought we'd rather do it that way than pay for the taxi and go ourselves.The waterfall was lovely but we went in the height of the driest month, April so there wasn't a huge amount of water but enough for it to be beautiful. It was my first waterfall (apart from an Austrian frozen one I saw!) and it was lovely. It was nice to get in and have a swim in the cold water pool and stand under the fall. We also went up a level and took some lovely photos. We even saw a little turtle/ terrapin!The elephant trek was ok. I always feel guilty if riding an animal though but they did not seem sad or mistreated at all. (in my opinion, of course I'm no expert and could be wrong)It was pretty terrifying though as I'm pretty much afraid of everything, including huge animals and heights! But it was a good experience that I won't forget. Especially the elephant rising up on his hind legs to rip the palms from the trees above him. I thought we were going to fall off! It was pretty frightening.ll in all we had a good half day trip and I'd recommend people do it if you can.

we thought the national parks were all further up north in the country, but then we learned about Phanom Bencha. Technically, its a small national park, but dont worry you will never notice that. big enought o get lost in for days. Did a great elephant trek there, with washing the elephant after the trek. our kids were over the moon ! the local elephant treks we saw everywhere (in rubber plantations and fields) cant compare with this, a real wilderness trek. Recommended !

We arrived around 10.00 PM at the park and where amongst the first visitors. I travel Thailand for 15 years now, but have never seen a better kept place like this (exept the hotel gardens). The very friendly staff was cleaning the walkways from fallen leafs and carried them back into the forrest.Just beautyful pure nature to enjoy. Picknick spots and everything you need. A wonderful getaway from dirty Ao Nang area (they should take an example here how a place is kept inviting).Loved it. Will be back as soon as possible. And fore those who come here in Flip-Flops or High heels and then complain about the steep and rocky way i would suggest, stay at the hotel pool and go take a picture with the poor Gibbon at Ao Nang. Sometimes I think there are certain countries where you have to leave your brain at the airport by checking in.....
