People who love to travel should already know by now how breathtaking the views in Phuket are. This island is filled with amazing sceneries, various beautiful beaches, and a culture that will surely pique anyone’s interests. The many excursions offered all over this island help in making it a fun and desirable travel destination.
One of the many things Phuket takes pride in is its stunning waterfall sceneries. Phuket is home to astounding waterfalls. They can be found in the depths of the island’s vast jungles, and looking for them will surely bring out the treasure hunter in you. These spectacular waterfalls are a thing of beauty and visiting them will level up any traveler’s Phuket adventure.
Here are the four waterfalls of Phuket that you need to see during your trip to the island:
The thing that sets this magnificent waterfall apart from the rest is the arrangement of its body of water. The Kathu Waterfall features a collection of mini-falls rather than one great waterfall or perpendicular bodies of water falling from the height.
While it’s not easy to climb the waterfall, travelers can use the shades along the way to rest when tired. There are also stairs that were built by the locals to help tourists climb the falls easier.
Ao Yon Waterfall
Just a distance from Cape Panwa, this waterfall sits behind the Ao Yon Noi beach. However, the waterfall is hidden from plain sight, making it difficult to access. Expect a rocky and bumpy pathway when visiting this wonder of nature. For your safety, it’s best to wear protective gear and find a local to help you navigate the area to reach the waterfall.
The best thing about the Ao Yon Waterfall is that it’s basically a mini-pool as the falls itself is relatively small, making it a prime bathing destination. Many locals frequent the falls and are extremely friendly toward tourists. Since the waterfall resides within the jungle, the surrounding is tranquil, which is a perfect place for relaxation and meditation.
Ton Sai Waterfall
This waterfall sits further on the western side of the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. It is known to be the second-largest waterfall in the island. The Ton Sai falls is a majestic body of water that flows on a stacked formation of rocks, which is an amazing scene that’s pleasing to the eye.
The Ton Sai Waterfall, unlike the previous ones, is a little larger and is a more open area, allowing sunlight to reach the scene and brighten up the surrounding. The Ton Sai Waterfall is also the best spot for birdwatching among all these falls since it’s frequented by hundreds of different kinds of birds.
Bang Pae Waterfall
The Bang Pae Waterfall is a 20-minute car ride from Ton Sai and sits within the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. This body of water features a ten-meter high drop, making it the largest waterfall in Phuket. The setting of this falls can be described as a raging calm since the height of the drop makes the water seemingly full of vigor, but then sits calmly as it hits the surface below.
The Bae Pang Waterfall is a hard one to climb because of its height. However, it makes for a perfect adventure destination, especially for the ones who love nature and the pump of adrenaline.
Phuket’s waterfalls are each unique in their own ways and visiting them is highly recommended. When doing so, it’s best to ensure that you are energized and are raring to go for an adventure. Spending a night for relaxation prior to your waterfall escapade is a good way to keep yourself vitalized the next day.
