BANG PAE WATERFALL:
Entrance to the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park for visitors is 200 baht, and it is recommended to wear good shoes as the path to the waterfall can be a little slippery, especially in the wet months, and as you are walking through the jungle, ensure you are covered in mosquito repellent. You also have the opportunity to swim in the cool waters, so come prepared!
The Gibbon Rehabilitation centre is found close by, so you are advised to take notice of signs asking for no food or drink allowed near the waterfall, in case you come face to face with one of the inhabitants. For more details on the Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre please look under our separate listing, which gives all necessary information.
