How to get there. There are 2 signs to this waterfall. Assuming that you are coming here from the west coast of Koh Chang, you will come across the 'unofficial' sign first, which has been erected by some enterprising locals who will then charge you 20 baht to park. Don't go this way, it's further to walk anyway. Keep on going, past the hospital on your right, until you get to the big municipal building, again on the right. Turn right next to this building and follow the road until it stops. You are now at the start of the waterfall.

Follow the path until the third level. The 4th level is better than the first 3 levels, but there is no path between 3 and 4, so you have to climb up the river. Be careful; slippy rocks. If you have young kids with you or you aren't physically fit, you can probably stop reading here.

Now the 5th level. I've never seen it photographed anywhere, or seen any reviews written about it. From the 4th level, walk to your right, under some vines you will see a small ladder; if you aren't looking for it you will miss it, it blends in to the background. I came here 3 times before I saw it. Follow the ladder and the waterpipes up. It's very steep, there isn't any path, and at times you are climbing using ropes. Cuts and bruises are likely.

The 5th level is big - about the same height as Klong Plu and only a little bit smaller than Klong Neung. But it's better than Neung because it has a big pool at the bottom to swim in (assuming it's been raining recently), and it's better than Plu because there's nobody there.

Can you go further than the 5th level? Yes. But it's even harder than the climb from the 4th to the 5th. Is it worth it? Probably not. There are some more levels but they're at least 20 minutes further walk and there is no path. These levels are no more impressive than levels 1-3. But another reason for making the climb is the ledge about 10 metres up that you can jump off (check where you're going to jump in first to see how deep it is). I also think it might be possible to jump in from the top, but you'd need to be crazy to try that. It must be 40 metres. By the way, you can see the sea (and Trad mainland) from the top of level 5.

In the end I walked about an hour past level 5, up the riverbed. Then the river forked in two and became small, and there were lots of fallen trees, so I gave up and turned around. It's a beautiful jungle river.

I'm attaching the photos, don't look if you want a surprise.

This Waterfall doesn't charge for an entrance fee but it was the best among the 3 waterfalls we visited in this trip (the other two charged 200 baht for foreigners).

When I came there, I met a complete unfriednly farmer, who wanted me to pay a parking tribute for my scooter - because he thought I would have parked on his land - but i didn't. I parked at the street. He didn't car. He was very agressive and another proof that the Tha people are driven by greed today.
He was yelling at me without reason, and after i paid 20 Baht (50 Cent) my mood was very bad. Then I arrived at a waterfall, where on the right side of all water areas waere ugly plastic water tubes.
Again another destroyed place in Thailands nature.
To me it lokks like Thai people destry systematically all the beauty of their country.
Didn't stay to long there. Didn't get in touch with the energy of that place...

Khlong Nonsi is well worth the adventure of finding it. There are two different ways to get to the waterfall. We took the route through the back of a government building which had signs for the waterfall and found they were paving a much more stable road to the source that very day! The waterfall (sometimes spelled Nonsee) had 4 different swimmable pools with falls between each.
There were no tourists there when we arrived which I found to be a nice change of pace from the west side and the ever crowded Khlong Plu waterfall. In fact, there were some local Thai school kids sudsing up in one of the pools, clearly it was their local bath tub! They were very excited to see us and even showed us where it was deep enough to jump off rocks into the pools. I went to many waterfalls on the Eastside, Khlong Neung, Than Mayom (Not recommended), Kheeri Phet, etc. and this was my personal favorite due to its local flair. Oh and I forgot to mention, unlike some of the other waterfalls, Khlong Nonsi has no entrance fee :)

The two main waterfalls on Koh Chang have entrance fees, as they are in the National Park. I found another waterfall that is free of charge.
On the east coast at the north end of Dan Mai village you will find Nonsi, one of the free waterfalls.

Drive around to the east coast on your rental scooter, past the local hospital on your right and a couple of minutes ride further south you should see a homemade blue sign for the waterfall on your right. Take this road and on your left hand side you'll see a little carpark at a small house. You can park your motorbike there for 20 THB or a car for 40 THB. You can also buy a snack to enjoy at the falls.

If you have missed the turn off the main road you will see small coffeeshop 50 metros to the south, and if you continue another 200 metres or so then you will reach a paved road leading down to the old pier at Dan Mai on your left.

If you go just past this first marker, and take the very next road to the right, you can avoid the parking fee found at the first stop and park right up next to the falls.

The road is a dirt track and may take a little skill to navigate, so if you're unsure, take the first parking area and pay the 20 THB.

When you arrive, jump right in, the water's fine....at least in the wet season. It's crisp and cool and quite refreshing...you can even jump from the rocks perched just above the pool where the falls plunge off the hillside.

There's a sign pointing to "Floor 2" and this can be well worth the hike, and actually goes at least to "Floor 4" although, be wary, the hike to the 4th floor is a bit sketchy.

Be sure the water is good and full wherever you decide to jump, but there are many stops along the way.

It even looks like it went up to at least a 5th floor, however, we decided not to venture farther as we were quite exhausted by the time we got to the 4th floor.

We stumbled across this waterfall when we were out riding a motorbike across the island (a must if you are staying in Koh Chang). As it was late afternoon (4-5pm) we had the entire waterfall to ourselves. Absolutely stunning views and we could swim in the refreshing cold water completely by ourselves! There are little fish that bite your feet but nothing to worry about! A great experience!

Between Koh Kood and Koh Chang, we went to a lot of waterfalls. Khlong Nonsi was my favorite by far! We were there during low season, so all of them were flowing, this just happened to be my favorite due to the varying levels and just the way it fell. Worth the time on a bike to get there. :)
