Tad Leuang Waterfall

Our rating:

A little further south from Silaphet on the same Route 1081 and a few kilometres north of Santisuk Town is another picturesque and English-signposted waterfall.


Photo of Tad Leuang Waterfall

A slightly faded but large sign points you down a lane leading through a small village on the east side of the road. Immediately before a tiny primary school a left turn along a dirt track takes you to a small carpark after about 1.5 kilometres. From the carpark the falls are a short walk through the trees. You’ll need to cross the wooden bridge over the stream and follow the path along the riverbank. The falls aren’t high – they are really rather a series of cascades – but they are very scenic with plenty of bathing spots. When we passed hordes of butterflies were supping up minerals from the evaporating puddles in the sand. Unlike nearby Silaphet, Tad Leuang surprisingly doesn’t seem to receive many visitors and there are zero cafes and no picnicking locals; just a clear stream, birds, butterflies and a lovely setting.
