We took a day tour around Palau with guide which cost 200 dollars. We visited the falls which has a ten dollar entrance fee. There is a long downhill walk to get there which goes through rainforest which is interesting. It is possible to get a small funicular ride when it is working. It wasn't,t when we visited and there... More

Once you're done with the ocean (Milky Way, Jellyfish lake, snorkelling, kayaking), on the last day of most package holidays you'll go to this waterfall. It's a lovely 30-45 minutes walk from the bus to the waterfall, past an old ancient railway track, past a touristy zip line and wading through rivers, and at the end is a very pretty... More

We went there by rental car. 10$ per person entry. It's a scenic way down but quite a climb back up. There is a monorail you can take back up but then you need to pay before going down. The water is nice and cool but at least when we were there, swimming is not possible as the water was... More

Worth it, but don't count on "swimming" in the pool beneath the falls. The falls are very powerful, the pool shallow, the mist intense. The walk is hot, many steps, but worthwhile.

The falls were beautiful, but water temp is cold, be ready for that. The perfect ocean temps spoiled me. I actually enjoyed the poools 2/3 down to the falls more. The hike in and out isn't too difficult, I recomend it.

It's a beautiful waterfall! Takes a good 20min hike down. We chose to do the half way zip line which was more for the thrill of it than saving time. If u want to save time you gotta do the full zip line but then you miss the nice cooling creek! Definitely take the buggy train ride back up as... More

As with a couple of other reviewers, my first visit to Ngardmau Falls was a peaceful, scenic hike through the rainforest, and a lovely dip in the rock pools at the end. Now they've 'developed' the attraction, much to it's detriment IMHO. There is a zip-line down - those who choose to do this may get a buzz, but miss... More

There is a fee to trek to the falls but it is totally worth it. Stunning jungle scenery as well as lush flora and vibrant fauna. Huge flowing falls you can play in all you wantand the folks that staff it are awesome! Thanks Ike and Jordan for a fun filled trip to the Falls!

The trail to the falls is a bit challenging, but the steps and upkeep make the journey fun. A zipline is available for the adventurous. If you walk, bring water shoes or dive boots. The Monorail back up is worth the price, especially if you are interested in seeing the flora up close.

Ngardmau Falls was one of the first adventures I had on land in Palau. You have to drive about 30 minutes from Korror. There are people that sit at the base of the hike that charge for parking ( I don't think they're legit, and it was only a couple dollars I believe.)The hike is easy but you have to... More
