Ngardmau Falls, Koror

4.2
#3 of 12 in Parks in Palau
Stand under the rushing waters of Ngardmau Falls, a 30 m (100 ft) high waterfall hidden among the surrounding jungle. Legend has it that a giant eel appeared on the rocks here and lay down for centuries, draped over the edge of the cliff face. Over time, the magic eel--considered a god by the locals--turned into a mighty river. Have a bite to eat in a traditional Palauan hut as the water cascades down, and follow the river through the diverse forest, discovering natural pools and local wildlife.

  • Speaking of Palau! Sea! Right! Sea! In it, hero inland. Right! Grace Mao falls! In the Trek. It's easy from Koror by car it takes about 40 minutes well one way from from the waterfalls entrance to the waterfall takes about 40 minutes?... Anyway go down like I walk in I'm not of course paved road! I'll wear heels or your daughter is definitely not impossible. But although I went with flip flops. A variety of plants the flowers until the waterfall, is fun in its own way. The mosquito is not... Just in case some mosquito repellent spray I guess falls itself is less water for lack of power, but in its own way!... Each time have found Palau is not only the sea!
