Presentation Sticky Waterfall (Bua Thong waterfall)

Thai name : น้ำตกบัวตอง
My opinion:
Bua Thong Waterfall isn't the most beautiful or impressive one in Chiang Mai province but it's probably the most fun to visit. Why? Because of the peculiarity, its nickname of Sticky Waterfall tells us. The limestone stream of this 100-meter-high waterfall is not slippery as the beds of waterfalls usually are. Here, the natural milky-colored coating is rough and grips the feet. So you can climb the waterfall very easily. This is why visitors come here: to climb Chiang Mai Sticky Waterfall without slipping.

It's fun to do and requires little effort. On the parts with a slightly steeper slope, there are ropes to help.

How to get to Sticky Waterfall (Bua Thong waterfall) ?

The Sticky Waterfall is sixty kilometers away from downtown Chiang Mai. it takes a little over an hour to drive there. There is no public transport to take get to Bua Thong Waterfall. The easiest way to get there isi to hire a red car to drive you there, let you visit the waterfall, and drive you back to Chiang Mai. it should cost around 800 THB regardless of the number of passengers (I would say a maximum of 8). But I recommend you to take the opportunity to make a small tour that passes by Wat Pa Dara Phirom Phra Aram Luang and Huay Thung Tao Lake to eat there in one of its floating straw huts. And why not also visit Wat Bua Thong temple, not far away from the waterfall?
