Saw this as well on Tripadvisor. I hope it has something to do with the camera angle and this guy is not really sliding down there.

Fair play to the Thais. I recently grounded my car whilst reversing off a parking slab outside a shop that only had a slope for half its width, so had a wheel hanging off a two foot drop. My stupid fault.

 

within two minutes five Thai guys came from a nearby building site and lifted my car back on to the slab. They were even embarrassed to take a tip. 

 

Thanks Chiang Mai site builders, you were great. Parking slab builders, not so great!

The whole rope thingy looks a bit dodgy. IMO the area should be closed off to visitors at this point but ideally the local government should give the property owner some time and money to construct proper walkways and stairs.

Intrepid people these Brits, always falling over in odd places and surviving.

I always found Thais to be quite helpful. Not so much with directions, but with helping out when your vehicle breaks down or when you fall down while walking etc.

"He was only found after a local in Mae Nam saw a motorbike parked near a path leading down to the Khun Sri falls."

 

Kudos for him and his initiative.

 

He saved the guy's life.

If I want to go from Lamai to Mae Nam, I take the jungle route so for me it's kind of a main road. Pretty well built and I am not quite sure why not more people are taking it during the daytime.

As a man of advanced years, and an afficiado of Bundy OP rum, I find it quite easy to fall down while walking!

Our prayers are with him and we hope his recovery is speedy. One thing is sure he live each day henceforth knowing how lucky he is to be alive and enjoy life's good things be it the warmth of the sun, wine , women or song.
