Trekking along the waterfalls

Numerous waterfalls at various locations in Koh Chang a blessing in disguise to elude the heat!  The most popular waterfall is “Klong Plu” is situated on the west coast of the island.  Purely surrounded by nature a short walk off a footpath of approximately 600m leads to this refreshingly stunning fall.  The pool at the foot of the waterfall is looks spectacular, inviting you to take a swim in the cold water.  The friendly park rangers are ever at your assistance.  An entrance fee is applicable. The information displayed in the huts to the right of the trail is worth a visit that explains about the local flora and fauna. 


Next waterfall goes back in history to make a mark on its existence. It is the “Tan Mayom” Waterfall which is off 500 kilometres from National Park office. As you walk along the trail you will be passing the Durean garden in order to reach the fall. This waterfall is of medium size that has three steps with a igneous square rock surrounded by dense forest.  The rock has the names of King Rama Five (2456), King Rama Six (2465), King Rama Seven (2470) and Queen of King Rama seven  (2516) carved on it as a remembrance of their visit.


Other significant waterfall is “Klong Nung” waterfall.  It is the tallest waterfall in Koh Chang and it takes almost about an hour to get to it. It is quite challenging to get to.  But it is definitely worth the effort. The shallow pond at the foot of the fall is rather a treat to dip in and ease off your limbs after the hike. The signage on the footpath leading to the fall is not well marked. You have to rather travel through the river. It is best to go with a guide.
