Waterfall is at Tambon To Teng, not too far from town. Take Highway
No. 4056 to Su-ngai Padi Hospital, then turn left for 6 kms. The
entrance is a good asphalt road in Budo-Su-ngai Padi National Park.
This is a medium-sized waterfall that has a year-round water supply
and is shady by the many trees in the area.
The most striking plant
here is the rare Bangsun Palm that is found in the jungle around
1,800 metres above sea level. Originating from Malaysia, the plant
is a low tree with many branches that can get as high as 3 metres.
It has neatly arranged, large, diamond-shaped leaves. The palm is
regarded by many as the most beautiful palm in the world and is
found only in this forest. The name “Bangsun Palm” was given by
Professor Prachit Wamanon, advisor of the royal projects, when he
inspected the area and found the palm had grown in a Muslim village.
The professor saw that the palm leaf was similar to a “Bangsun,” a
large umbrella used in processions. The locals call the palm Buke
Ipae, meaning mountain centipede, probably because the flower is
shaped like a centipede.
