Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
There isn't any real luxury accommodation around Tad Lo falls, but there's some decent midrange, and excellent budget accommodation available.

During the rainy season, the dirt road leading to the bridge can get ridiculously muddy. Still, it's a wonderfully beautiful and laidback locale -- the kind of place you plan to spend a day or two but end up staying much longer.
