Ob Luang National Park, Chiang Mai
Getting there is half the fun - you must have heard the saying - and Mae Tia Waterfall is a case in point!
At this time of year, the deciduous forest flanking this mountain road leading to the falls treats passers-by to a most spectacular show of colours as the leaves change from green to different shades of red and orange.
Unlike other attractions in the national park which are located in Hot district, farther south, Mae Tia Waterfall is in Chom Thong district, a mere 58 kilometres from Chiang Mai.
- How to get there
The road to Mae Tia begins right next to the Chom Thong district office. There's no regular public transport to the waterfall, but in Chom Thong there are plenty of 'songthaeo' mini-buses available for hire.
- Food and accommodation
There are no restaurants, food vendors or accommodation options at the waterfall. But if you really wish to stay in this area overnight, you can go to the nearest forest-protection unit and ask for permission to pitch your tent.
