Just spent a few quiet hours at this national park. Stunning waterfalls, some cheeky monkeys and a chance to feed the fish.
We were the first to arrive on a Sunday morning and were greeted by Ranger Nic. Thai guy with amazing English, great advice, and an obvious love of nature.
He advised against climbing up too far due to recent rain, which turned out to be really good advice.
The hikes up the falls are not a stroll, will require some stamina and strength. We got as far as the 2nd viewing platform. Really lovely and worth the 1/2 hour trip from Hat Yai.

Summary : We only managed to climb up to 4th waterfall. Amazing views and nice to dip in water after we sweat a lot. Only one group of locals were there when we reached. Felt like hidden private nature pool.

- Visited Namtok Ton Nga Chang waterfall in April 2018.

- Hired a hotel car (Sedan) by 2,000 baht. (You may think it’s expensive but we think it’s good option as you can’t find taxi or grab cars since the place is very isolated. The driver will wait for you for 4-5 hours at the car park till you come back.)

- Took about 40 minutes by car to reach to the car park from the centre of city.

- Paid 200 baht per pax at the entrance gate before the car park. (Foreigner price)

- Reached there around 9:10 on Saturday and there was not so many people. Only a few families.

- 1st waterfall. Very easy that you can reach within 5 minutes. As many people commented, it’s good area for families with young kinds. Shallow and slow.

- Moved to 2nd waterfall. Easy, less than 10 minutes from 1st one. High and long waterfall wall.

- Challenge started after 2nd waterfall. Not proper route, rocks and roots. When you see wooden bridge at 2nd waterfall area, don’t cross over. Always stay the right side toward waterfall. On the way from 2nd to 3rd, indicated by arrows. Also you can find ropes for you to grab.

- From 3rd to 4th, no indication nor rope. Very steep rocks to crawl. Not recommend to climb up if you are not adventurous enough. Recommend to wear long pants as your knees might get scratches when you crawl.

- When we came down to 1st waterfall around 1pm, there were so many local families having picnic and lunch beside waterfall. Car parks were full. You may have to wait to find a parking slot if you come afternoon on weekends.

Good to bring
- Swimming suits
- Towel
- Sun block cream
- Cap
- Sunglasses

As a resident, I really can't stomach this double pricing thing. When asked, those who take your money will invariably reply with, "Same same your country!"... Really? Where? I've never seen or heard of it!

Let me first say its 200 Baht. Which is 20.48 Malaysia Ringgit. Which is $6.10 US dollars. Be mindful of currency exchange when you are traveling. They don't advertise this park officially online that I saw, and we found out about the price after a long drive there. So carry extra cash & do your research before wandering around like we did.

I am in no way a luxurious traveler but I am a lover of nature. This place was one of my favorite to visit, not because of the people so much, or the way the facility was kept- but because of nature. One of the longest stretching waterfall in Thailand, not sure how it compares to others in the world, but big enough for me to feel small. This is an ideal place for those of us who rather spend 6.10 on something other than Chipotle (a Mexican chain restaurant) at home. Take a couple of hours to dedicate to this place if you intend to get your moneys worth. There are three main activities to do, first take the little ones in the little kid infested shallow water near the entrance. Pack a lunch and relax! Two, take the left road (in my opinion, the one less traveled) and go on a nature hike. You'll see less of the waterfall on the way. but the view from the top is spectacular. Three, veer to the right and go hiking along the waterfall. Be mindful of the working ants as they have the right away in every situation, haha. Also remember I mentioned hiking, which should insinuate proper clothing, shoes and necessary items. I did forget that I needed bug spray but only ended up with one or two bites, so don't fret. I suggest wearing linen if you have, as it will help your skin breath as this (or some of it) isn't a slow incline, or one for the feeble or weak of heart. Bring a friend or a personal photographer if you must, but leave the disposable bottles at home, as they are not allowed on the actual hike, which I can appreciate. I enjoyed it, as it was my first hike and waterfall viewing all in one visit.

It is slightly out of town but worth the visit! Its about 30-40 minutes drive from the town area. Entrance fee 200baht for foreigners.

We arrived really early around 8am. And there wasn’t anyone around so if you’re planning to go solo please go slightly later (for safety). We had to sign in our details at a small hut to go to level 2 onwards. No food and plastic bottles allowed but you can claim them when you return.

Best to go with a Friend or more cos the route can be quite challenging and I am amazed how we’re allowed to trek all the way up by ourselves (without any locals)! It’s quite thrilling to be honest - the big rocks and boulders. Both of us only managed to go up till level 3. Tried to go further up but as some mentioned there were no markers or clear paths from then on and it rained the night before so there were fallen leaves and what not so we decided to head back down.

Please do yourself a favour and have a swim while you’re there! We didn’t bring extra clothes so we only dipped our legs in only to find out there are shops selling clothes and footwear near the carpark! And food (halal food available) too. For more privacy, take a dip on the higher levels.

When we reached the base, it was quite a sight to see a lot of families chilling. Would totally come back if there’s someone to guide us all the way up!

*we went by car. Hired a driver for a one day trip including to this waterfall so we don’t have to worry about not getting a transport back. Spent about 5-6 hours here in total.
Can try contacting this number if you wish for a transport/tours: ‭+66 85-670-1389‬ (Suria, able to speak bahasa).

Yes, they charge you more to be a tourist. We paid 200 THB each, a lot more than locals, but we're ok with that. We went by motorcycles and that has its advantages in that you can park right by the first level, whereas on a busy weekend the cars stretch quite far down the road.
The first level is really for families with young children and older adults, and although quite crowded, there was a safe and friendly feel to it. If you want to get into a less crowded pool, you have to go higher. Don't even think about it if the ground is wet as you have to scamper up quite steep and shiny rock faces, and the path is not always obvious. We got to level three relatively easily and swam in the pools looking out over the rain forest. Flip flops probably not the best footwear.

Next time we take water and go higher. The higher you go, the fewer people there are, and I suspect if you get there early enough you'd have a private bathing area.

Unlike other reviewers, we didn't see much litter at all. The area has plenty of bins, overflowing at times for sure, but used. The food stalls at the bottom are not particularly exciting, so for anything more than ice creams, bring your own food or eat out after the visit.

This waterfall is located in the Ton Nga Chang Wildlife Sanctuary, about 26 km away from the city. The waterfall has seven levels and there are pools for dipping or swimming below each level. The climb up the falls can be tough and rocks are slippery so be cautious. The third level is the best. Bring your own towels, food and drinks for a picnic. Could be packed on weekends as it is popular among the locals. A nice place to take a break from shopping and spend some time with nature.

Very nice waterfalls. There are 7 in total, we climbed until number 4. Fall number 1 and 2 are easy walks. To number 3 is steep climbing on slippery slopes. As of number 3 the trail is hard to find and we couldn't find the trail to number 5 anymore. The climb is not for the faint-hearted. Small ledges near drop-offs, slipper slopes, etc. You need good shoes, and although not comfy: I would recommend trousers instead of shorts. There are snakes and insects, so be aware (we encountered a young cobra and aggresive bees. The number 4 waterfall was the most beautiful one, and the view over the valley is worth the effort and entrance fee. We went on a weekly day and encountered only one other visitor. The place is well maintained up till fall number 2/3. Clean toilets. no garbage.
