Koh Chang Waterfalls Guide
Koh Chang waterfalls are simply beautiful, stunning and a great way to cool off – and they all make for a great adventure or day out. Going to the East Side of Koh Chang can be a really nice day topped off with a bit of site seeing in Salak Phet and stopping along the way for some great views.
The most accessible and busiest Koh Chang waterfall due to it being on the west side and easy to get to from Klong Prao village. After entering the Park office head up the trail about 20 minutes. Swimming and diving in are popular here at all times. Note: can be crowded on the weekends.
A three level waterfall most people stay at the first level but a slippery climb can be made to the top of the third level where a large pool is great to cool down on.
Than Mayom Waterfall: If you are a Thai national this is the most famous as it was visited by King Rama V, Rama VI and Rama VII, who all left their mark on the waterfalls. Thus it gets a lot of visitors.
After going through the park office head up about 400 meters and through a durian orchard to get to the bottom pool. There are four levels but few get up to the top level, as it is quite the hike. Swimming is allowed, no worries. Good hike on the way in also!
Khiri Phet Waterfall:
About 2km from the village this is a medium sized waterfall that has many levels. Depending on the season it can be quite spectacular in Green Season and quite low in high season. Bonues though, in High Season you can get to the top 7th level without too much problem.
Klong Neung Waterfall:
Close to Khiri Phet this is the tallest Koh Chang waterfall. Chest deep pool greets you after about an hours walk with a final push over a huge boulder. Amazing view from the top, which can be a bit of a hike.
Khlong Nonsi Waterfall:
Around Dan Mai this is a smaller waterfall and should be visited only in the Green Season as it is want to dry up in the high season.
When you’re at a Koh Chang waterfall the rocks can be treacherous and slippery, although you think it might be better to go in bare feet it actually is easier in sandals or other footwear. Keep your camera in a dry bag as it is easy to slip and take a fall.
