Kepirohi Waterfall, Pohnpei

4.7
#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 Kolonia trip itinerary builder site to plot your vacation.

  • Kepirohi Waterfall Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia Not very big but very nice waterfall and easy access to them. And it is on the way to Nan Madal.  more »
  • It's a short walk from the road to get here - and it's on the way to Nan Madol, so makes an easy stop. During our visit, the falls weren't in full spate, but I actually liked it better, as it showed t...  more »
  • An obvious choice if you want to get to know the terrain and see something out of the ordinary. A short walk from the main road which passes the greenery along a path of about 400 meters until you arrive. One suggestion is to include a lunch bag and enjoy it here. In the water there are large eels that are aggressive, so beware if you plan to swim here.

  • Kepirohi Waterfalls is located in the municipality of Madolenihmw. It is about an hour drive from Kolonia. Very easy to find. It is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Pohnpei. Just to remind that the water is not clean and not good for swimming. Tourist fee is $3.00.
  • Beautiful waterfall near Nan Madol. Pay $3 at the nearby "market" before you walk over.
  • 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!
