Kepirohi Waterfall, Pohnpei

4.6
#2 of 13 in Parks in Federated States of Micronesia
Make a splash at Kepirohi Waterfall, one of Micronesia's best-known waterfalls. The 20 m (66 ft) high fall drops into a lake, a huge draw for both local and visiting swimmers and picnickers. Follow a stone path from the main road to reach this hidden gem, and look for colorful tropical flowers along the way. Once there, you can cool off and retreat from the heat and humidity of the jungle by jumping into the pool below. This waterfall sits within a private estate, so don't forget to bring some cash to pay the small fee collected by the landowner. A visit to Kepirohi Waterfall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pohnpei trip itinerary builder site to plot your vacation.

    A small but impressive waterfall is. Until the basin very slippery underfoot, so caution is required. People can swim in the basin in the country surrounded by nature's quintessential activity to rock climb, jumping into a well. Eels in the basin are swimming.

    The waterfall is really a very pretty place to visit. It does depend on the recent rains as to if the falls are in full glory or (and beware) if it is flowing it can be a little hairy - dangerous for ...  more »

    Very beautiful waterfall. It takes 5 to 10 minutes to walk to the waterfall from the road. Now the entrance fee is $4.

    This waterfall is a good place to stop after visiting Nan Madol. It's right off the main road and costs $3 per person. The walk up to the waterfall is very beautiful with lots of different colored plants and flowers. Part of the trail becomes stoney and muddy so you will want good shoes. The waterfall has a cement terrace with a bench that is great for relaxing by the large waterfall but you will want to hope you have it to yourself. The water is deep enough for swimming or wading.

    Great place to visit in Pohnpei. It is soooo fresh! I suggest for the trip before go to Kepirohi, visit Nan Madohl first. From the salty water then rinse it with fresh water. Fresh!

Where to stay in Pohnpei

The accommodations in Pohnpei are primarily concentrated in Kolonia and along Nan Mal Road. Standard hotel rooms and more expensive resort stays are available, along with some apartments available for short rentals. However, the number of accommodations is fairly limited, so pre-booking is advisable. Many of the hotels offer airport pickup and car rental, along with onsite restaurants, bars, and tour booking services. Pick lodgings next to the lagoon, or farther out of town for easiest access to the landscape at additional cost.
