The water at Mok Fa Waterfall drops from the high cliff to the swamp below and runs along the stream. It is not so far from Mueang district of Chiang Mai and is very alive with trees. Apart from the beautiful waterfall, there is also Tham Mok Fa, the habitat of bats and the nature trail for nature lovers to join a lot of activities such as swimming, camping, surveying the nature, and bird watching.

Mok Fah Waterfall is originated from the stream that runs from the thick wood and separates into two streams falling from the stone cliff. The area is full of large trees and plants like moss and fern and the moisture from the waterfall steam can also cool the air. The best time to visit this place is during the winter since the water is so clean and clear that the tourists can go swimming at the swamp below.

In the morning, the sunlight shines and reflects the white stream, causing a color of the rainbow sparking brilliantly. Green moss and fern always stick at the cliff. In the winter and the autumn, the waterfall provides different wonderful atmosphere, while in the rainy season, it is no less beautiful than any other time. The water runs more intensely and hits the cliff and the swamp below more loudly. The steam splashes and spreads everywhere, making all over the places look glorious with the white fog which leads to the name of the waterfall. If the tourists want to spend a night at the waterfall, a campsite and four houses are offered for them but the tourists should reserve the places or contact Doi Suthep-Doi Pui National Park in advance.

Escape the heat in the shallow pool and surrounding greenery of Mork Fah Waterfall. A short stroll takes you to an excellent picnic area.

How to get there :

Mok Fah Waterfall is situated on the North Side of Doi Suthep – Pui National Park around 45 km from Chiang Mai on route 1095 to Pai and Mae Hong Son. The Falls are actually situated a further couple of KM down a semi paved road but it is well signposted on route 1095. If you do not have your own transport then charter a car, tuk tuk or Songtaew in Chiang Mai., however due to the distance this may be a bit of a way to travel to view just the one waterfall. Mok Fa is actually situated on the Chiang Mai to Pai route so most visitors will be on their way to Pai or Mae Hong Son when they drop by.

  • By local taxi or Red taxi : You can also rent a sangthaew (the red pickup buses) to the lake and arrange a time to be picked up. This will cost around B2000
  • Tour company or travel agent can arrange transport via air-conditioned mini-bus, program should combine with Mae Hong Son package tours
  • By renting the mountain bike or Motorbike.
