The second route is from Sap Pa Wan Reservoir to Hin Dat Waterfall which is one tier but wide and surrounded with beautiful flowers such as orchids like Lin Mangkon (Habenaria rhodocheila), Dok Thian (Balsamina), etc. Then, continue to Namtok Khlong Phak Nam and return to the reservoir.

Other waterfalls found in the area and nearby are differently splendid. Significant ones are as follows:  Namtok Khao Khaep, a 7-tiered waterfall with a height of 30 metres. It is very attractive. The water passage is small, therefore, the water falls in line and hits the stones below, creating splashes. The basin for the waterfall is big and deep containing emerald-green water. Namtok Krok Fa Phanang is near Namtok Krok I Dok with a height of 20 metres. It is a steep cliff appropriate for those who admire adventure. Namtok Sap Pa Wan is not too high. Its water originates from the reservoir of the project. It is appropriate to travel during the rainy season or the period when there is a lot of water because the water passage is safe from the mountain torrent and the trail is a plain and easy walk. At each tier of the waterfall, there is a relaxing rock terrace. Besides trekking, the centre also prepares an animal watching activity for one kilometre.
