Waterfalls in Koh Chang

Author: Junjeera

Klong Plu

       Where: Close to Klong Prao and Kai Bae beaches.

       Trail: Walk along a well-marked footpath for only 20 minutes or about 800 metres. Walking to the second and third levels will need the assistance of park officials or guides, as the path is slippery and difficult to reach.

       Attractions: This is the most popular waterfall among foreign and local tourists. It is the most accessible among them all since it is the nearest if you are on one of the island's west coast beaches. The fall plunges down a narrow drop-off into a pool, where you can go for a refreshing swim. The huge cool fresh water pool is deep in the center and the flank allowing visitors to dive from an elevated spot.


Than Mayom

       Where: Located next to Than Mayom pier with its entrance just behind the headquarters of the Marine National Park.

       Trail: A well-marked pathway leads to a 45-minute climb to the first set of falls.

       Attractions: This is a series of three falls along the stream of Klong Mayom. The second waterfall is about 500 metres east and the third is 3 kms from the first. There are good views from the top and you'll find two stones with inscriptions bearing the initials of King Rama V, King Rama VI and King Rama VII. You can camp at the area by bringing your own tents or renting from the park office at 200-500 Baht depending on the size. Sunrise is one of the attractions for early risers. Swimming is also allowed. Restrooms and food stalls are available.


Klong Nonsi

       Where: Located on the northernmost of Koh Chang, about 4 km from the headquarters of the marine park at Than Mayom.

       Trail: A 1-hour, 3-km path from Ban Dan Mai near Koh Chang police station leads to this waterfall.

       Attractions: A small-sized waterfall with several cascades.


       Where: Located 2 km from the southern fishing village of Salakphet           

       Trail: If driving, you can park your car in the rubber plantation within the waterfall vicinity and take a 15-minute walk. Hikers should wear climbing shoes and use great caution when climbing up the rocks. Rangers from nearby Salakphet Forestry Office can lend a helping hand if you request.

       Attractions: Although medium-sized, Kiripet has multiple levels. During dry season, it is possible to climb up to the seventh level of Kiripet. Swimming is possible but it is advisable to check the water currents, especially during the rainy season. During this time, it's also very wet and slippery.

Klong Nueng

       Where: Not far from Kiripet.

       Trail: The hike takes 1 hour and you'll need to climb over a huge boulder to reach the waterfall.

       Attractions: It is the tallest waterfall on Koh Chang. It's a challenge to get there but definitely rewarding for the effort. The chest-deep pond is suitable for a cool dip after a 1-hour hike.
