Wachirathan Waterfall is amongst the most popular waterfalls in Doi Inthanon National Park due to its immense scale and its accessibility for visitors.

With a central location, Wachirathan Waterfall has a large parking lot surrounded by restaurants and vendors. Visitors can walk up a short paved trail to see the towering falls. Standing about 40 meters in height, Wachirathan rushes into the river below, throwing out a thick sheet of mist into the jungle surrounding it.

There is a main viewing area which most visitors stick to, though there is also a short climb up a set of stairs, as well as a path that leads down to the river's edge, both of which offer varying - and more photogenic - views of the falls with fewer visitors.

The waterfall is clearly signed from the main road and easy to find. There are restaurants, restrooms and trash in the parking area.

Wachirathan Waterfall lies inside Doi Inthanon National Park, and is subject to park hours and fees.
