Khao Soi Dao Waterfall (Thai: น้ำตกเขาสอยดาว; rtgsNam Tok Khao Soi Dao) is a waterfall in the Soi Dao District of Chanthaburi Province, Thailand. It is 70 km from the town of Chanthaburi.[1] The easy way to get to this waterfall, if you have a car is to go ahead from the city on Route 317 through Makham District and Pong Nam Ron District. At km 62 you should turn left and go ahead 3 km.[2] This waterfall is open from 6.00am to 6.00pm. The most popular attraction at the falls is nature trails because there is a huge tree of 4.77 meters diameter.[3] The waterfall has 16 tiers created by multi-level stone cliffs which gives the impression of a giant stair. At the bottom is a vast pool with shallow water. The popular tier is tier 16 because this tier has a lot of moss on the stone. It feels fresh and is suitable for capturing. This tier is named “Phanangleun” [4] Pha Nang Leun mean “Mrs. Slippery cliff” because the careless traveller can slip on the moss on a stone when he walks through. The source of the waterfall is near the Peak of KhaoSoi Dao Nua Mountain at 1,556 meters above sea level.[5]
