We didn’t plan to visit Mae Sa Waterfall on our trip to Chiang Mai; we just happened to pass it on our way to Baan Tong Luang (Long-Neck village), so we decided to stop and take a look. It’s not one of those large spectacular waterfalls, but it’s still impressive spanning 1,500 meters over ten levels. Since this was not part of our plan we didn’t hike all the way up to level 10, but we did four, five levels, and it was a nice little walk. If you decide to come here, don’t forget to bring your swimming clothes as each waterfall forms a plunge pool.

A beautiful little waterfall. I would love to take a dip, but we had other plans.
Another level, a different waterfall.

Mae Sa Waterfall is located in Doi Suthep-Doi Pui National Park featuring rugged mountains including the famous Doi Suthep. Entrance fee for adult foreigners is 200 THB and 100 THB for children. We went here on a weekday around 10-11 and were pretty much alone.
Mae Sa Waterfall is located 4 km from Baan Tong Luang (Long-Neck village)
