Thi Lo Su Waterfall: The highest waterfall in Thailand and the largest by volume, Thi Lo Su Waterfall is an impressive force of nature that is definitely worth the trip. Found within the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary in central Thailand, this majestic waterfall is incredibly photogenic thanks to its three separate tiers. Estimates say that this waterfall, fed by the Mae Klong River, is between 250 and 400 meters tall and around 450 meters wide. There is a 90-minute return walk to explore each of its tiers. Visitors can also cool off and swim in the pools at the bottom of the falls.
