The distinction of this place is that the stream contains limestone. The waterfall is around 100 meters high with two levels and its slope is about 50 degrees. Besides, the waterfall stream, which runs to Huai Mae Pon, is very shady and has many more small beautiful waterfalls. There are a lot of minerals in the water, including calcium carbonate that gushes out of the ground and flows into the stream and the small waterfalls. As the stream is coated by calcium carbonate, it becomes hard which looks so remarkable. Jedsee Fountain is a cold 6×8 meters spring with the water gushes out of the ground all year. The clear water shines a color of the rainbow when reflecting the sunlight. The fountain is the water source of Buatong Waterfall as the water runs from the fountain to Buatong Waterfall for approximately 100 meters.
