    A very nice area, with a Temple and swimming area. Busy with locals in hot weather especially on week ends or holidays.(nothing wrong with that!) The amount of water flow really depends on rains, it c...  more »

    To keep it short: the ascent of about 40 minutes worth not (except perhaps the own health and fitness). Very small waterfall, if you can call it so... My friend and I were very disappointed and can not recommend this destination.

    .. to get to the waterfall, through thickets, climbing over stock and Stein.Recht adventurous. Once at the top, didn't quite nicely, but for us to swim... the water looked not so inviting as intended... and the water pipes, which drew attention by loud whistling to himself were what had surprised us very... pump the water high so that it can plunge down or down as water... they don't know...

    Amazing this is the only waterfall on the island that had free parking. At the base of the falls there is a nice little Buddhist temple and a section that you can swim in, if you don't mind swimming with the large fish in that area. There is another small pond that you can swim in if you climb the rocks at the bottom. For most of the picturesque waterfalls and grander swimming spots it requires a bit of a hike up the adjoining path up the mountain. After about an hour our climbing you get to the main waterfall.

    Be prepared to walk a good 40 mins across rocks and tree roots to get to the falls. Take A good bit of water, snacks if you intend spending time there. Wear good walking shoes. Flip flops will not be adequate although you may cope ok. (I managed just about). I have seen better water falls. There's a restaurant at the start that sells decent food.

    Definitely a must do when in Koh Samui, compared to the other waterfalls like Nu Mueang, this is 90% less crowded due to the 40min to 1 hour long hike which keeps the classy Mainland Chinese tourists away. If you're not into hiking don't go or invite those, it is quite a walk and not like you're walking on stairs, literally dense forest treks. If possible, climb up the waterfall using the two ropes on the left, the view up the waterfall and beyond is astonishing. Wish I had another friend to climb up with me, it does get too quiet and creepy up there, feels like a tiger or crocodile will jump out after you any moment.

    It's a long walk to the waterfall but it is worth it. The waterfall is small but beautiful. There are very few tourist around so you can enjoy a swim or a dive in peace.

    Beautiful waterfall / cooling pool reward for your 2km hike through the humid jungle. Some challenging rocks and the odd snake to keep you on your toes. Take water! The pool at the end has little fish that take off your dead skin! 💦🤗
