Huai Luang waterfall, Ubon Ratchatani

The Huai Luang waterfall is located inside the Phu Chong Na Yoi National Park which is in the Amphur of Na Cha Luai, right up against the Cambodian border, a 2 hour drive from Ubon Ratchatani but just a 30 minute drive from my village. I have been here many times with friends and family and am constantly impressed by it’s beauty and power. The price has come way down from when I first visited and is now a much more respectable 100 baht ($3.30 AUS) per foreigner to visit. As per usual I complained about the dual pricing (a Thai person is 20 baht) and so they allowed the kids to enter for free.
There are some quite steep steps to navigate to get down to the river level so not recommended for very young kids or very old people. Bring your bathers as there is no problems with having a swim to cool off when you arrive.

Once again, a big thank you Clint for letting me use his photos and once again I will let the pictures tell the story.

  1. Got to go here on my next trip over to Ubon. Looks great….

  2. My last visit was in 1998. Still looks the same. Great swimming place. I remember we swam out to underneath the waterfall, climbed up and did some diving.

    It is indeed a steep climb.

    I am pleased the entrance fee has come down. That’s why I have not gone back to a national park in Thailand because of the gorging of foreigners and blatant racism.

  3. Wow, that’s a beautiful spot. You mention getting down is a challenge, but what about getting back up? Sounds like a bit of a workout 🙂 That’s on my list when I visit later this year. Thanks for the tour report.
