Sticky Waterfall in Chiang Mai

Nam Tok Bua Tong might be the best thing to do in Chiang Mai. It looks slippery, but dissolved minerals in the water coat the rocks and tree roots in high-traction limestone making it really easy to walk over.

Perfect day trip out of Chiang Mai

Nam Tok Bua Tong (น้ําตกบัวตอง), or the Sticky Waterfall as people call it in English might be the best thing to do in Chiang Mai. It looks slippery, but dissolved minerals in the water coat the rocks and tree roots in high-traction limestone making it really easy to walk over. It’s about an hour’s drive north making it a perfect day trip out of Chiang Mai.
