The hike's as beautiful as the waterfall!

After you pay 10USD as entrance/tax you walk down through the jungle into a small open forest and then down a river bed until you end up at the waterfall. We did the hike in... read more

After you pay 10USD as entrance/tax you walk down through the jungle into a small open forest and then down a river bed until you end up at the waterfall. We did the hike in flipflops so it's pretty well maintained and easy to do. There's also a monorail and a zipline you can use (for an additional cost) but... More

Its is a great natural beauty of Palau that this falls is there. Although it is not much high from sea level we can see this beauty here.

Ngardmau Falls is an easy drive around the ring road from Koror town, and it's easy to spot the entrance. The hike is fairly steep, but not too long, and you are rewarded with a great waterfall at the end. Note that a portion of the trail leads you next to, or in the case following a heavy rain, through... More

It is one of the great place for hiking and sightseeing in Koror. The falls is fabulous and there are lots of activities to do like zip line, cable cars or hike to reach water fall

Ngardmau Falls is the highest waterfall in Palau at about 50-feet high. The falls are located off the western highway about 18 miles from Koror. They are located about 1 km from the entry down a steep slope to a river cataract that runs into the river that flows from the falls. Beautiful jungle scenery and warm, clear water make... More

When you get down to the waterfall, it's pretty cool. Thought the hike was not for the meek in the middle of the afternoon. It's downhill and I could see some people having some issues. I can see some people having real trouble coming back up. you can zip line down. Four lines for $80, We would normally do something... More

Nice walk down to the falls or you can take the zip line. The one rail train back up the hill is a hoot.

Beautiful small waterfall, a nice walk downhill will get you to this little waterfall. The path can be slippery and muddy , especially after rainfalls. You get a nice impression of the vegiitation of the island . Walking back can be quite exhausting due to temperature and humidity , some people call the little train for help which is quite... More

The hike down can be a little slippery, but I would not recommend the monorail train down as it seems a bit rickety for the terrain. You'll pass a WWII Japanese Bauxite mine on the way down as well as a zip-line. The ponds along the way are very scenic and worth checking out. The culmination of the trip comes... More
