Mae Surin waterfall is located in the far south east corner of the Mae Surin National Park, and is 20 kms in from highway 1263. The road is good, but very curvy so is slow driving. About two thirds of the way in we passed Thung Bua Tong Fields, which is a hillside panorama is carpeted with yellow Mexican sunflowers near the end of the year. But it was not the right time of the year so all we saw was the green foliage. We were also in clouds at this point, so were wondering if there was any point in continuing on to the waterfall. Luckily, when we reached the waterfall, we were back out of the clouds again.

The waterfall can be easily seen from a viewing platform just past the entrance into the national park. From this platform, it is only possible to see the top part of the waterfall. To see the entire waterfall from top to bottom requires a trek of several hours down to the valley below, or a 2 minute flight of my drone.
