Definitely worth doing if you have time in Chiang Mai. I didn’t know what to expect from the sticky waterfall but I was pleasantly surprised. You can actually walk up the waterfall! There are ropes to help you up. You can walk all the way...More

Pros - cheap (free), you can walk up the waterfalls (they really are sticky), you can take a picnic lunch, they don't allow pets but they have a pet 'deposit' cage at the entrance. Cons - a bit far if you are staying in town,...More

I spent a couple of hours there which was plenty for me. You can stay longer as it’s a park with hangout and picnic.
