Lampi is an amazing 3-level waterfall you have to visit when you’re in Khao Lak. It is located in the Lampi National Park only 30 minutes south of Khao Lak.
The entrance fee is 100 THB for tourists, and if you come by car or motorbike you pay an additional 20 THB parking fee.
Lampi waterfall has a large pool to swim in among the fish. It’s nice refreshing water, especially during noon when the heat is intense. You can walk a path on the left side of the waterfall when you pass the hanging bridge. The bridge also gives a nice view from a higher angle to take pictures. You can walk up to the second level and relax at a smaller pool with a beautiful down. The third level is accessible, but it’s a tough climb which you could do with decent shoes. Trying this climb with slippers could end up breaking them, the climb is quite steep at some points. We generally don’t recommend going to the third level. The park Rangers will stop you as well if they spot you going up. They also don’t allow you to climb the rocks next to the waterfall.
Relaxing at the foot of the waterfall is the main attraction. You could try swimming toward the waterfall, but when the current is strong it’s a difficult task. Some people also dive/jump from the rocks on the left side, or simply sit and relax. The pool is quite deep close to the waterfall, we haven’t measured it, but it’s approximately 3 to 4 meters at its deepest point. Many
Thai locals like to relax down the stream, where you can find a place to chill your feet in the cooling water, enjoy the majestic environment, and spot some small animals (lizards, fish, exotic butterflies, and more).
There isn’t a restaurant, but you can buy some snacks from the food stalls at the parking. Furthermore, you can buy some drinks and ice cream in the small building at the entrance. You could also buy some snacks at a minimart right at the intersection to the waterfall.
