  • Head over the small bridge, past the small cafe on the left and up the stone steps to start the walk. The falls themselves (3 accessible plunge pools) were quite underwhelming. The water didn’t look c...  more »
  • such a place for calm in jungle so for me you can take a day rest to visit this place although the facilities was poor.  more »
  • Read the reviews, tried it. Did not think it was special. Ok for getting exercise but too much to say it was beautiful or 5 star. As for a swim...it is pretty dirty water and no idea what rocks, rusti...  more »

  • Not sure if we reached the top or not. We went very early, so there were literally no other people around l, which was actually quite nice. Be prepared for bugs, geckos, lizards, snakes, and crabs (yes, even crabs). A nice hike that can be completed in 20 minutes with a break or two for water/pictures.
  • If you want to say that you've been in a Thai jungle without having to go out into a real wild one; this would be ideal. A short climb up the meandering stairways to almost the source of the water falls' water. The path gets a bit rough at the end but nothing one can't walk through. I did have a sense of the real wild jungle, and was a bit nervous not to stumble on any snakes or other dangerous insects or animals. It's a short fun adventure in the middle of Phuket, almost.
  • nice 1/2 day trip a bit of a drive but worth it. make sure you walk all the way up. Its nice
  • The lower waterfall area is quite nice and there are also some nice places to chill right up into the jungle if you can manage the trek. The main waterfall is disappointing though as they have made a concrete type swimming area which is now old and ugly and usually not deep enough to swim or jump in.
  • Not exactly spectacular, but good for some stair climbing exercise in a quiet place.
