An adventure to The Pam Bok Waterfall is one of the best things to do when exploring the mountainous region of Pai. Here is the complete guide of Pam Bok Waterfall to help you plan your trip!
WHERE IS PAM BOK WATERFALL & HOW TO GET THERE
The best way to get around Pai is on a scooter to explore all four corners of the region. Scooters can be rented for a little as 150 Baht per day from one of the many rental stores in the centre of Pai. Alternatively, some accommodations have scooter rentals available for around the same price. A money deposit or passport is generally required for insurance purposes.
If you aren’t confident with riding a scooter, you can hail a songthaew (pick-up truck with bench seats) to get from A to B. Make sure to agree on a price with the driver first before jumping in the back.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT PAM BOK WATERFALL
The beautiful Pam Bok Waterfall is surrounded by a canyon of high cliffs with a freshwater rock pool at the base of the falls. It is less touristy than the Moe Pang Waterfall in Pai, meaning you’ll most likely have it to yourself.
There are a few rock jumping points from the cliff walls surrounding Pam Bok Waterfall though be sure to do a depth check first and avoid diving head first into the rock pools.
The best time of year to visit the Pai Waterfalls is in the wet season, July – November, when the rain provides a decent amount of water flow from the mountains to the falls. In the dry season, February – May, there won’t much more than a trickle of water.
I spent an hour or so exploring and swimming at Pam Bok Waterfall before continuing another 2km up the road to the popular Bamboo Bridge attraction.
