    Beautiful but tricky hike
    Beautiful view at the top but beware - very slippery and unmarked paths. It is easy to overshoot the hike to Muaeng 2. At the time I went there were no other hikers along the path (8-10am). The hike includes sheer rock face with ropes as there is moss and it is slippery, and rickety plank bridges. It is easy to fall here. There are pools to bathe in along the way. It takes around 1 hour round trip walking from the elephant kingdom at the base to top and back down. I recommend wearing hiking shoes for this and wearing lots of bug spray.

    Nothing much !!
    During our day tour of Koh Samui our guide brought us here at the end of tour. It's a small waterfall and path leading to it is quite slippery. Nothing great. Thre are few food and souvenir stalls nearby. What we did not like at all was the sight of elephants being chained for the ride for tourists.

    Look for the weather before viting
    There was nothing to do much. The water fall was like almost dry. The water was muddy. Its much better to relax on beach. We visited the waterfall in the month of March when it is very hot due to which water flow was very low.

I visited this location while on a little half day trip I’d arranged from my hotel. While I didn’t go into the water, the ribbonlike waterfall was very impressive and there was no entry fee to get into this place. It’s also located inset from the main road, and in the woods a little bit.

There was actually a second waterfall, but according to the driver, it wasn’t open to the public at that time.

Unless you’re planning on swimming there for a bit, for myself, it was really just a short ‘see and leave’ kind of site. No need to really spend that much time there, but why it’s still good to stop by if you have other locations in the area to stop by and see.

Animal Abuse, don’t even go to the waterfall as you’ll be promoting this disgusting organisation. We turned around, as soon as we saw the elephants chained up. Those tourists who ride the elephants should be chained up instead, completely unacceptable behaviour.

The water fall was beautiful and lovely to swim in but the mistreated elephants ruined the trip.
The chained up elephants in tiny enclosures rocking side to side like the Romanian orphans in the 1960s was awful. Considering most of the tourists and visitors of the park were western and this treatment of animals is extremely frowned upon in the west, I was very shocked to see this kind of abuse so openly.
The elephants were very clearly in distress and the treatment from the humans looking after them was shocking. The enclosures were not fit for such a large animal, it was like blackfish, and they couldn’t move around as their legs were chained. They also had seats on their backs for riding which is extremely dangerous to elephants leading to serious wounds on their backs and spinal issues.
I strongly recommend the people working there give the elephants over to an ethical elephant sanctuary so they can be adequately cared for, or take some advice from those places and look after their animals properly.
The world has changed and abuse of animals is not acceptable anymore and modern tourists aren’t interested in supporting places like this.

The waterfall is lovely, and the craft markets very good value, but wish people wouldn’t ride the elephants!! The poor animals were chained up on less than a metre chain, couldn’t move their feet much at all. They were swaying their heads, it was horrible to see, my sister and I were in tears. The owners seemed oblivious, didn’t seem to acknowledge the elephants just dragged them off to work, no encouraging chatter etc.

We visited an ethical sanctuary and it was a much more rewarding experience . If people didn’t pay for the trekking it would soon stop, and maybe the elephants could be roaming free in a sanctuary and much happier

The waterfall was lovely but there are many waterfalls that are nice in Thailand/surrounding countries if you are travelling south east Asia. The whole experience was ruined by the elephants being chained up at the front in the car park. Those beautiful elephants should not be kept in a car park like that or used for riding on:( An animal of that size should not be kept chained up, they look depressed, scared and not healthy at all. It broke my heart and I know lots of other people have said it ruined their experience as well . This is a massive tourist spot and yet they have elephants chained up, something that is highly frowned upon in the Western world. If you’re an animal lover or a decent human being then you won’t ride one of these poor creatures.
We wanted to buy and give them a banana but it is contributing to keeping this running☹️

Stopped here on part of the island tour and I must say it was worth it.
The walk to the waterfall is in the middle of the forest and then it just appears !
Although our visit in February when rain is minimal it did not make it less attractive.
Deet is a must for those who get bitten easily

Gorgeous scenery. We went during dry season. There was water in the pool- but not a gushing waterfall. There was a weak waterfall though. It was still worth it to go. The natural scenery is just spectacular. The rocks with the water. There was even a natural swing. Highly recommend this place! About a 3 minute drive from here- you can see a live Cobra Show. We did that after Namuang. Was a great day out!

If you have ever visited an another waterfall you wouldn't visit here. It is like a deserted water park with an overpriced buffet.
But if you like sliding and spend app 1 or 2 hours in a nature rather then beaching, it can be fun.
