Huai Mae Khamin Waterfall It is located at the park office on the edge of the Srinakarin Dam lake. Huai Mae Khamin Waterfall is divided into 7 levels, each level having different height and beauty. The park has made a walking path for going up to see each level of the waterfall and is also a nature trail. It is in a very beautiful condition. All over the shady area with various forest plants. The waterfall flows from the headwaters of the Kala Mountain Range, which is a dry evergreen forest. to the east of the park and flows into the reservoir Srinakarin Dam It is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Kanchanaburi.
This trip was so much fun.
Beautiful waterfall, cool atmosphere. When walking up a bit tired. The water is cool and fun to play. 3rd and 4th floor waterfalls are beautiful. But me and my friends play together on the 3rd floor. enough people.

5 star for good maintenance
7 different layers of waterfall spread over 1-2 hrs of walking having a clear walking path. Yes not one over other layers but layers spread far away.
Thai people come on holidays and enjoy waterfall at different levels.
The area is huge. 4 layers of waterfall was one one side and other 3 layers were on a different side.
Enough parking. Food stalls. Toilet facilities.
Walking track is proper. If someone can make such a huge area into a tourist spot its Thailand.
Visit once to see how huge and maintained this place is.
Due to time constraints I had to decide between Erawan and Kamin. From what I had read, they are similar in beauty but Kamin is less crowded. Less crowded was motivation enough to drive the extra hour plus to get to Kamin. Was greeted by a 300b entry, which seemed a bit steep, until I saw how much effort went into improvements. Extensive wooden and stone pathways throughout the falls area. Not sure I was expecting this many people though, and it was a challenge to get any photos without people. The park rents tents and I believe bungalows of some kind, and there were scores of vehicles parked by the campground. This was a Monday, so perhaps weekends are more crowded yet? There were plenty of toilets (western seat but bucket wash) and an on-site restaurant. Access to the falls is divided into two sections. The downstream section is the prettiest, with the more dramatic drops. Many pools for swimming. I enjoyed watching the local kids jumping off the falls into the pools below. Wooden stairs and walkways are easy to navigate. The pathway and pools are mostly shaded. The upstream section is more of a nature walk along a stone pathway. Several stops have informative signs describing flora and fauna. The round trip hike to the top and back is 2.5 km. I opted to turn around early, as it was very hot and I was parched. Note that they do not allow food or drink on either section, and there are guards waiting to confiscate your bottles. Although this had the intended effect of eliminating litter (I saw none) and discouraging monkeys (I saw none), it’s just not practical to expect people to hike 2.5 km at 90 degrees with no water. So I will summarize: This is a very pretty place, and I’m glad I went there. But was it worth the extra drive? Kamin was certainly not sparsely populated, but perhaps Erawan was more crowded yet? I’ll let someone who has been to both Kamin and Erawan help with that decision.
Hidden gem, secret travellers tip
While planning to go to Erawan waterfalls, we received this “inside” tip to go to this place. It appeared to be the best tip ever!
7 tiers in a big (2 km?) waterfall, with sort of natural platforms, allowing you to enter the water almost everywhere!
And the best thing? No tourists, just a handful of friendly local Thai people!
We never expected a beauty like this spot would remain undiscovered.
For 40+: the blue lagoon movie in real life, most romantic place ever!
Waterfalls on 7 levels
Amazing similar to Erawan but has emerald pools whereas Erawan has azure. Chose your colour or do both like we did !
Worth the drive
These are more extensive and beautiful than other falls in Kanchanaburi. We worth the long drive. There are seven levels of falls, and even well into the dry season there was plenty of water. Because of the distance there are fewer visitors than at other falls, and they can spread themselves over the different levels. The water is clear and refreshing - you can wade into the pools. There is a wooden walkway allowing easy access to each level. Officials are good at keeping the falls clean of any rubbish, and we found visitors respectful of the rules protecting the falls.
