Thaan Sadet (North East)
Thaan Sadet waterfall
was frist visited by Thai Royalty in 1888 when King Rama V left an inscription on a rock that remains today; he revisited the same spot more than 10 times. The
present King Bhumibol has also been to this sacred series of falls, where the river waters are used in certain Royal Ceremonies that obtain water from only a few sources around
Thailand. It is a fairytale of huge granite boulders and multitudes of fresh water pools and can be walked its full length of 3kms. The falls are more like huge stepping stones
and can be approached from numerous places; either from the magnificent beach of Haad Thaan Sadet
or on the road into Thaan Sadet (beware; only experienced motorcyclists should
attempt the Thaan Sadet road, otherwise take a boat, txi or hire a jeep).
