Hin Dat Waterfall, one of the worth-visiting waterfalls in Chanthaburi, is situated in the premises of Khao Soi Dao Wildlife Sanctuary, Moo 2, Tab Sai subdistrict, which is about 10 kilometers away from Pong Nam Ron district office. With the height of 20 meters and enormous size, Hin Dat waterfall is sprung from a stream flowing down from a towering cliff. Even though there is water consistently running throughout the year, most tourists prefer spending time at the bottom of the waterfall near Wang Kra Phae Forest Ranger Office because it requires a pretty far walking distance.
The area around the waterfall sits the biggest cardamom forest in Khao Soi Dao. The route towards Hin Dat waterfall is apparently the same route for transporting cardamom, so the sights of villagers carrying cardamom and their shacks are very common. The slippery and steep route suits trekking enthusiasts who are obligatorily guided by forest wardens. The 12 tiers of Hin Dat waterfall flow into Hin Dat canal and are surrounded by an intact tropical rain forest. The views are particular beautiful on the 9th and the 12th tier. The trail to the top of the waterfall is 10 kilometers from Pong Nam Ron district office, plus 3 more kilometers of walking. The total distance is 13 kilometers and takes 3 hours for a round trip.
Hin Dat waterfall can be reached by car. Drive along Highway 317 from Mueang district to Pong Nam Ron district. At Soi Dao Highland golf course, there is a crossroad on your left. Make a turn there and continue for another kilometer. Then you will find a T-junction, turn right and keep going for 5 kilometers.
