Wachirathan瀑布是位于通往Doi Inthanon山峰路上的第二大瀑布。路线同样的从Chom Thong村前往Doi Inthanon国家公园,在经过Mae Klang瀑布入口处后行驶约30分钟,就会看到路牌指示转右进入一道岔路,往山坡下行驶到停车场。从以下的告示牌上得知Wachirathan瀑布以前被称为Tad Khongyong瀑布,这里已在海平线750米上。

 

The Wachirathan Waterfall is the second major waterfall on the way up to Doi Inthanon peak. We followed the same route from Chom Thong, drove about 30 mins after the Mae Klang junction, there's a right junction led us to the carpark at downslope. The Wachirathan Fall previously is known as Tad Khongyong Fall, the location is about 750 meter above sea level!

从停车场就已可看到Wachirathan瀑布。

 

The Wachirathan Fall can be seen from the carpark, just a short walk to reach the waterfall.

通往瀑布共有数条通道,由于瀑布猛烈的水流激起的水雾使到这些通道都非常湿滑,所以大家都得小心翼翼的步行。瀑布旁还有条通道可通往瀑布顶部。

 

There are plenty of paths to reach the waterfall. However, the paths tends to be very slippery from the spray so caution is needed. A trail lead to the top of Wachirathan Fall is located at left of river.

停车场对面的峭壁应该就是告示牌里所指的Pha Mon Kaeo峭壁。

 

The steep at the opposite of carpark believed is the Pha Mon Kaeo, which mentioned in the signboard.
