Inaccessible path 2/3rd of way up
Nov 2021 • Friends
Read a lot of reviews saying it was a strenuous hike and to wear trainers/take plenty of water & bug spray. Went between rain showers and followed the path on google maps and the beaten track, up towards the top of the waterfall then the path disappeared 2/3rds of the way up. As there was no clear path to follow we had to turn back so didn’t even make it to the waterfall. It’s a shame as we were prepared for the hike but something must’ve disrupted the path so it’s inaccessible now, could be due to lack of maintenance during covid:(

Half-day outdoor experience on Koh Samui island

Hin-Lat waterfall at Samui Island 🇹🇭

This place quite nice if you like hiking and outdoor activities.
Because you can read this waterfall by motorbike or car directly. You have to take a walk at least 30 mins from the parking. The rough is fully in the jungle so it can be uncomfortable for heavily weight traveler. Sometimes the pass is quite narrow but it is exacted. 🙂

If you can give it like a half-day of your time, it is a worthwhile place to visit.

Those pictures are in May, so I think if you travel on rainy or monsoon reasons, it might be more beautiful.

Nice Waterfall
Jun 2019
It is not the easiest Waterfall to reach. It is a long walk from the car park. The waterfall itself is a beautiful spot for photos and is great fun for children to play in the water.

It was a 5km hike (or so my phone said) there and back to go all the way to the top. I must say it is a really strenuous hike to get there so not for the faint hearted. There is lots of areas to stop off along the way where the water kind of pools. The jungle hike really is beautiful, we loved it. Its mosquito heaven though so if you are prone to bites take lots of spray!

Beautiful dungel and waterfall
Dec 2019
I personally loved it, becuase i like nature and the dzungel. The trip was a little exhausting for some. You have to climb high up in the dzungel to get to a great point where you can look down and over the treetops. But beware, do not climb up the waterfall rocks, they are very slippery! Please use the paths next to waterfall! And bring a bottle or two water with you, you´ll need it!

Tough Hike

Not for the unfit and young children. Took my family an hour to the highest fall. The reward are nice pools for swimming so do bring swimming gear.

Disappointing
Nov 2019 • Couples
As far as waterfalls go Hin Lad waterfall was somewhere between poor & disappointing. It was neither big nor dramatic. The water was dirty brown, there were loads of tourists & it was small as far as waterfalls go.
Don’t bother honestly.

Wonderful but check other reviews carefully!
Oct 2019
Looking at some of the reviews, it’s clear a lot of people have mixed Hin Lad up with the Na Muang waterfalls (Na Muang 1 and Na Muang 2).

Na Muang 1 and 2 are super touristy and charge you a fortune for entrance to some hideous safari park with elephant trekking on offer, which is in every way reprehensible. I suggest you avoid that!

Hin Lad is TOTALLY different. There is no admission fee, no elephants and it’s much quieter - we went on an October afternoon after a storm that morning and saw hardly anyone there!

However, the trek is pretty challenging through the jungle, on an undulating track with rocks and trees in the way for a lot of it. I would suggest strong trainers with good grip. After 1.5km you’ll reach the first waterfall - if you carry on past this, the second is all the more spectacular. Unfortunately we simply weren’t up to the third section, which would have needed us to scale a pretty sheer rock face to carry on climbing.

Highly recommended if you want a fairly short but moderately difficult hike. Probably not ideal for families with small children and those wearing flip flops!

Waterfall quite nice, hike to waterfall through the jungle is even better. Not so busy as most people don’t take the hike.
