What to Expect on the Sticky Waterfalls Adventure

Fresh and natural spring water. Gorgeous, photogenic rock patterns that your hands and feet will easily stick to. The combination of these two natural phenomenon make for an incredible break from the typical partying you’ll get into while staying at Bodega. Breathe in the mountain air, let the cool water wake you up and take everything in. It’s a great spot to take some photos for the Gram or to just kick back and relax. Hungover? No problem. You’ll soon forget all about it with the sights, smells and sounds of this relaxing waterfall.

Above all else, climbing up the Chiang Mai Sticky Waterfalls will make you feel like you’re Spider-man.

The Secret Spring of Bua Thong Waterfall

Keep a keen lookout for a sign near the top of the waterfall that says “Nam Phu Chet Si” and you’ll find yourself on a short journey to a hidden spring. You’ll know you’re there when you see the beautiful shrine – the sacred spring is just behind it. Locally known for its sacred water, with mysterious healing properties, it’s a pretty cool spot to check out while you’re here.
