3. Pha taek waterfall, Ranong

For people who appreciate trekking and adventure, Pha Taek Waterfall located in Khao Laem National Park is a must-see. Throughout the year, the gorgeous limestone waterfall flows with crystal pure water. When you swim in the waterfall, you may observe a variety of unusual fish since it is so fresh and clean.

The waterfall is around a 6 kilometres hike from Khao Laem National Park and the hills can be quite steep so therefore they only accept a limited number of tourists per trip, reservations will have to be made in advance.
