Experience an amazing adventure like no other with a cycling tour to the stunning Sticky Waterfall. Starting from the picturesque Mae Kuang reservoir, guests will take an optional long tail boat across the lake to the starting point of the bike ride to Sticky Waterfall, otherwise known as Bua Tong waterfall.

From here you will ride along a variety of quiet country roads, dirt dual track and single track passing through verdant teak forests, caves, villages and temples before reaching our destination – the amazing Sticky Waterfall.  Here you can take a much earned rest as you scramble and play among the many waterfall tiers and relax in the cooling waters. 

After lunch at the waterfall, guests will be escorted back to the Trailhead office or accommodation upon request. The Sticky Waterfall Explorer tour is suitable for people of all ages, however participants do need to be physically fit and confident on a bike.
