Presentation Huai Mae Kamin waterfalls

Thai name : น้ำตกห้วยแม่ขมิ้น
My opinion:
The Huay Mae Kamin waterfalls are located in the Khuean Srinagarindra National Park 95 km in the North of Kanchanaburi city. It is the same road to get there than the one that leads to the much better known Erawan waterfalls but they are about forty kilometers further away and are much less crowded with tourists. Huai Mae Kamin Waterfalls also have 7 levels. When you park in the main car park, you are on level 4 but you can also park at the bottom of the waterfalls. In general, visitors mainly choose to descend from level 4 to the 1st level, which is, it must be said, the most interesting and easiest part to visit with its wooden walkways and stairs. Towards levels 5 to 7, there is more walking on gravel paths. Going up and down at the Huai Mae Kamin waterfalls is much easier than at the Erawan waterfalls where the path of the upper levels is a bit demanding.

It is allowed to bathe in the Mae Kamin waterfalls and the river but forbidden to use soap or shampoo. It is also forbidden to dive in the waterfalls or bring food and picnic. There is water all year round but the level obviously varies depending on the time of year, the more you are at the end of the dry season (around May), the lower the water level is. The waterfalls can also be temporarily closed following an episode of heavy rain. The place is more crowded on weekends and holidays, with more Thais coming on those days.

How to get to Huai Mae Kamin waterfalls ?

Unlike Erawan Waterfalls, no bus or public transport goes to the Huai Mae Kamin waterfalls, you will need to have your own transportation. Expect a 2 hours drive from Kanchanaburi.
There are also jet ski tours that pass by Huai Mae Kamin but I do not really want to promote this type of activity that disturbs the tranquility of the rivers and their flora and fauna, so I did not try to get more information.
