The National Park Rescue Team Squad 5 in the northern region of Doi Suthep Pui National Park announced that the Mae Sa waterfall in the Maerim district will be temporarily closed. There is a moderate monsoon trough currently covering northern and northeastern Thailand as well as a southwesterly monsoon covering the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. These storms together are causing heavy rainfall all over the country and have caused the Mae Sa Waterfall to overflow and fill with dark water. For these safety concerns the park chief has decided to close down the waterfall to visitors until the weather improves.
