    Rafting often is added to Umphang's tour packages. Most popular rafting is Umphang to Thi Lor Shu waterfall, Thi Lor Lay and Umphang Kee.

    An alternative way to reach the Thi Lor Shu waterfall is by whitewater rafting downstream from Umphang along the calm section of Klong River and then continue journey either by trekking or by car for another about 12 km.

    Thi Lo Le Waterfall is promoted as an attraction for those who prefer adventure. It is a waterfall dropping directly into Klong River located deep in Thungyai Naresuan Wildlife Sanctuary with no road access. Only traveling with tour companies is possible. The journey to the waterfall typically involves white water rafting along Klong River of about 40 km through rapids of Class 4 or 5 while the journey back is usually by riding elephants. The trip takes 2 or 3 days.

    Thi Lo Su The most beautiful waterfall in Thailand

    by Wann Updated Nov 8, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thi Lo su waterfall is the biggest and the most beautiful waterfall in Thailand, also considered the sixth biggest waterfall in the world. The waterfall located in the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which links with the Thung Yai Naresuan and Huay Kha Kaeng Reserves, as well as Khlong Lan and Mae Wong National Parks. Together, they form Thailand's largest wildlife haven and Southeast Asia's top virgin forest. The water streams along limestone cliffs at the height of 200-300 meters down to cascading tiers which are surrounded by intact natural forests. All around the area behind the waterfall worth exploring, there’s a cave and several levels of pools for swimming but we couldn’t swim, too cold in December. I think the waterfall is the most beautiful at the end of rainy, start the cold season of Thailand (Nov-Dec) and that time you will found a lot of Thai visitors, it’s very popular destination in this time of the year. Many visitors usually buy package tour of resorts in Umphang.

    Hua Mot Hill

    Doi Hua Mot or Hua Mot Hill is definitely different from others typical hills, it’s limestone hills without single large tree but carpeted by blossoming shrubs and wild flowers stretching for approximately 30 kilometers. The peak of Doi Hua Mot is ideal place to appreciate the Sea of mist and spectacular sunrise at dawn. The lookout point provides a panoramic view of Umphang and the breathtaking lush, fertile forests.
