Officials have stated that the famous Mae Ya Waterfall in Chiang Mai is currently off limits to visitors as the area was inundated with the highest rainfall of the year and they believe the area is now in danger of flooding.

The Chief of the Doi Inthanon National Park Rung Hiranwong said that the popular tourist spot was hit by 175 millimetres of rainfall, so as a precaution officials have decided to for the time being shut the attraction.

A flood alert was issued this morning (October 24) to villages downstream at Tambon Ban Luang that there was a possibility that flooding might occur.

According to reports a total of 5,379 tourists visited the park over the extended three day weekend.

Doi Inthanon is home to Thailand’s tallest mountain and is popular among tourists traveling around the kingdom.
