Pa La Au Waterfall Hua Hin
Pa La Au Waterfall is a 15-level waterfall along a creek stretching out to the Burmese border. It's about 60 km west of Hua Hin. It's in the south end of Kaeng Krachan national park (Thailand's biggest national park), so if you're not a Thai citizen you have to pay an entrance of 200 Bath.
There is also an elephant camp, at the left side of the park entrance. This is a better deal than the ones in Hua Hin, since the jungle is more genuine. You don't have to pay the park entrance fee to do this ride.
Most visitors are turning back after the third level. I recommend you to keep on going as far as your physics allow you to.
Watch out for; slippery stones, muddy track during rain, mosquitoes, leeches. I was also told there are tigers and black panthers in the area. I don't know if that's true.
To get there; rent a car or a motorbike, get a taxi or let the hotel staff arrange the trips. The touts along the Hua Hin streets are overpriced. Hua Hin Tourist Information offers a great private tour, a good deal if you don't want to arrange the trip by yourself.
Bring water for this trip, you'll need it. And, keep the park clean Tourist Places around Pa La Au Waterfall
