The final part of the trail is quite steep.
Tat Mok waterfall is a one-tier waterfall flowing from the 750m high cliff. The forest around the waterfall is unspoiled. The water that falls from the cliff creates the fine mist which is the origin of the waterfall’s name.
Both sides of the trails leading up to the waterfall are shaded by large trees, giving the hike up to the waterfall a relaxing feel. A nature trail also provides an up-close look at the beautiful surroundings. The best time to visit is between October and May. The Tat Mok National Park also has an immense waterfall fed by streams of water flowing through the cracks and crevices of the mountains, creating the beautiful 12-tier Namtok Song Nang.
