Namtok Pha Suea
Pha Suea Waterfall Originated from Sa Nga River in Myanmar, Namtok Pha Suea is an important tourist attraction in Mae Hong Son. Situated 26 kilometers away from the city, the waterfall is in Tham Pla -Namtok Pha Suea National Park, Tambon Mok Cham Pae, Amphoe Mueang, Mae Hong Son. It is a medium-sized waterfall with the height of 10 meters and the width of 15 meters. Besides, the waterfall can be visited all year round. Namtok Pha Suea is another beautiful waterfall in the province. In rainy season, there will be a lot of water falling down from the cliff, making it resemble a mat. And that is where the name ‘Pha Suea’ comes from. (‘pha’ means a cliff, and ‘suea’ means a mat.) In other seasons, the small pebbles and rocks will come out as the water level is not high. However, anyone who visits the waterfall would wish to see the beauty of the waterfall rather than that of the rocks, so the best time to visit Pha Suea Waterfall is the rainy season or from July-September. Apart from the waterfall, visitors will get to enjoy the fish that are swimming in the stream. And if there is more time in hand, it is also a good idea to visit “Phra Tamnak Pang Tong” or Pang Tong Palace which is located nearby. Or coming down to Tham Pla and feed the fish inside is not a bad idea either. Visitors can go Namtok Pha Suea from Mae Hong Son via the Highway No. 1095 (Mae Hong Son-Pai) for around 18 kilometers until spotting the road to Pang Tong Palace. Turn to the road and continue driving for 10 kilometers. Namtok Pha Suea opens every day from 8.30 a.m.-5 p.m. The admission fees are 20 THB for an adult and 10 THB for a child with Thai nationality; 100 THB for an adult and 50 THB for a child with foreign nationality.
