The Phu Toei Waterfall trail is a trail that was only recently opened to the public. The trail is still quite fresh and the jungle untouched. This activity is not suitable for children, seniors, and over-weight people because it involves hiking up and down mountains in dense jungle for 5 hours.
Namtok Phu Toei is a limestone waterfall. Located at Ban Phu Toei in Thong Pha Phum district., it is surrounded by many flowering trees, bamboo forests and jungle. There is a stream that flows year long. 15 levels have already been found of the falls, and it is believed there are more.However only 9 levels are open to tourists where the 9th level is considered to be the largest and most beautiful at 100 m in height. The water falls powerfully onto the rocks below, spreading a mist of water to the surrounding area. The rainy season is when the falls are at their most beautiful and powerful but it is also when the falls are the most dangerous. Travelling to the falls requires a guide, for the trail is still unclear requiring the use of machetes to clear the path or create steps in some areas.
