  • It's a good place to get a natural beauty and this area also good, so make sure to explore something else too rather than beach in Phuket which are the most visited place while in Phuket.  more »
  • The waterfall area in Kathu is peaceful and quiet. There are a couple of places to eat at the start of the waterfall walk. The walk itself is up steps and not too difficult. I went during the rainy se...  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.
  • 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.
  • You can cool down there best in the morning then there are none to few people there. You can make very nice photos. Please up to very close up is well worth it. No entry therefore a little neglected. No toilets!
  • Smallish fall here but went on a very peaceful day and enjoyed idling around
