How to get to Nam Tok Thilawsu Park: From Mae Sot catch a pick-up truck to Um Pang (4 hour drive, through a beautiful country side and up twisting/curving/make you sick to your stomach roads) from Um Pang you follow the river past a set of hot springs… then continue the hike, 3 hours up to Nam Tok Thilawsu Park. Follow the nature trail to the falls, about a 30 minute walk/hike to the falls (this winds through a native, old growth bamboo forest… individual bamboo stalks as thick as a person!!!) NOTE: we did this jump in December (the dry season) we are not sure that the jump site is accessible in the rainy season.
SECOND NOTE: guides are very cheap for any sort of tours/hikes/adventure… save your self time, money and headaches… pay the $5 a day for a decent guide, otherwise enjoy!!!
