Mae Pan Waterfall is one of two, along with Huai Sai Lueang Waterfall, waterfalls in an isolated area of southwestern Doi Inthanon National Park. As such it receives relatively few visitors owing to its off-the-beaten-path location but is definitely worth the trip for those visiting the park.

Visitors park at the trailhead, then walk 0.5 kilometers down a single track trail that climbs and drops constantly before eventually scrambling over a few boulders to reach the viewpoint of the falls. With the humid and wet conditions of the area, much of the trail can be muddy, while the scrambling can be slippery. The falls themselves sit beside a grassy hillside where visitors can stare in awe at the drama of the multi-tiered waterfall.

Bathrooms, some amenities and camping are located just before the trailhead parking area. It is possible for visitors to drive or walk back and visit the Huai Sai Lueang Waterfall trail as well from here.

The summit trail lies within Doi Inthanon National Park and is subject to park hours and admission rates.
