Highway 1090 runs south from Mae Sot through a series of border towns and natural attractions such as waterfalls and national parks, until it reaches the remote village of Umphang. Once a hotbed of guerrillas and Burmese separatist groups, Umphang and vicinity are now safe and starting to attract travelers determined to get off the standard tourist trail.

En Route To Umphang

The four-hour songtao ride from Mae Sot passes through a wonderland of gleaming ricefields, banana groves, chili plantations, and remote villages hemmed in by awe-inspiring mountains.

Tararak Falls: Some 26 km south of Mae Sot is a small waterfall for a quick dip.

Pra Charoen Falls: Another minor but lovely cascade best visited during the rainy season, June-December.

Villages: Many of the villages en route to Umphang are inhabited by Karens, Mons, Lisu, Hmong, Mien, and Lahu, rather than Thais. Midway to Umphang is the village of Ban Rom Klao 4, populated mostly by Hmong and Karen. Thirty km before Umphang is the village of Mae Klong Kee, where accommodations are sometimes offered in local homes, or you can overnight at the Border Patrol campsites on the Mae Klong. When staying in someone's home, offer them 20-50B for the kindness.

Umphang Town

Umphang is a small town inhabited by perhaps 3,000 citizens--primarily Karens, Mons, and Thais. Pravesphywan Road is the main artery, along with another unnamed street to the west. The post office and pharmacy are on Pravesphywan Road, while the morning market and municipal hospital are found on the paved crossroad.

There are no banks or moneychangers in Umphang. Be sure to change enough money in Mae Sot to last for your entire visit.

The River Journey

Most travelers come to Umphang to make a trip down the Mae Klong River to visit Karen villages, caves, hot springs, and the best waterfall in the region.

The typical tour last three days and costs about 1500B per day. Groups are generally very small and custom itineraries are encouraged by putting together a combination of rafting, elephant rides, caving, and trekking. All tours start with rafting down the Mae Klong to Thee Lor Sue Falls, followed by trekking to the Karen villages of Khotha and Palata. A jeep makes the 25-km return trip to Umphang.

The faster tour reaches Thee Lor sue Falls in a single day, then takes a two-day trek to the pickup point. Many travelers prefer to stretch the river journey out to two full days, spending the first night at the hot springs, then slowly floating downriver to the falls.
