Somersby Falls Walk

A very short decent to Somersby Falls.

From second viewing area
We drove to Somersby Falls early on a summer morning after rain the week before. The first viewing area is level with the carpark and very easy to walk to. It is a pretty area with a number of small waterfalls. the second viewing area is a short distance down the stairs which my mother managed slowly. Through the trees you can see a larger section of the waterfall. Here my mother stopped and returned to the top as there were many steps to the next viewing area. It is worth descending into the valley to view the falls cascading down the cliff.

  1. This was the third or uppermost of the major waterfalls on the way up to Doi Inthanon's peak (not counting the Sirithat Waterfall, which unfortunately we didn't get to see), but we worked our way down from the top so that Siriphum was our first waterfall stop in the park. https://doubletakesblog.com/2018/06/chiang-mai-doi-inthanon-local-guide.html I can't put a definitive number for its height, but it wouldn't surprise me if it measured at well over 100m tall.
