Wachirathan Waterfall (Doi Inthanon National Park)
The Wachirathan Waterfall, also known as Vachirathan or Nam tok Vachirathan, is the second major waterfall in Doi Inthanon National Park. It is considered the most impressive of the waterfalls on the mountain’s slopes, with a cumulative height of around 40m. Despite its wide appearance, the waterfall is segmented due to the far right section being stringier than the left. During the wet season, the waterfall is both wide and raging, producing mist and rainbows. Despite its dry season presence, the falls still produced ample mist and rainbows.
