Recently we climbed up the 10 levels of the Mae Sa Waterfall during our Mae Rim loop tour in Chiang Mai. 

Arriving early made sure there is no tourists yet and we were really alone on our climb. It will also make sure that it is really manageable before the heat of the day kicks in, even though it is not a steep climb but still a sweaty one. 

Entrance fee and parking fee were charged at the entrance boot, even though entrance fee should have been waved due to the governments announcement during the mourning period for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. 

At the end of November there was also still plenty of water running. We had been here in March many years before and there was no water left. There are booth and food stalls at the parking lot, a bit up from the visitor center. However, as one Thai friend explained to me, a typical Thai visitor will only come for shopping and/or food, but will not really walk up the waterfalls. I am not sure if this is generally true, but it was actually what I saw during my visit.
