There are 7 levels to these amazing falls. It's a little tiring in the heat, but worth it to get to the top. Unfortunately, when we finally made it , we were surrounded by bees and we bolted. Too bad because it was beautiful up there. Stop on step 4, slide down the rocks into the pool at the bottom. Watch the fish nipping at you though -they're harmless, but a little freaky. Don't bother with the guided tours that the guesthouses are pushing - you can wait on the main road and take a bus for 27 BHT (we called it the 'death bus' - but i'm sure it's safe?). The entrance fee is 200 BHT (with the tour it is about 500 BHT total). We even saw some monkeys sitting in the trees! But don't feed them, it's a 500 BHT fine.

Directions: I suggest you ask the people at the guesthouse you are staying in which bus to jump on. They come by often, so just wait on the main streets. If in doubt, ask around.
