Why Na Muang Waterfall is special ?

Na Muang Waterfalls, a majestic set of two cascades on Koh Samui, show that the island’s beauty is not limited to its beaches. Found inland about 12 kilometres south-east of Nathon Bay, the Na Muang falls are reached by taking a walking path from the entrance to the park.The first waterfall, Na Muang 1, flows down into a pretty natural pool that provides a cool escape from the heat. About 30 minutes by foot further uphill is the smaller yet equally inviting Na Muang 2.


Namtok Na Muang, or ‘Purple Waterfalls’, are so named because of the striking purple shade of their rock faces. There are other waterfalls to visit on Koh Samui, but these are considered to be among the most scenic. Na Muang is a popular place for families to relax and swim, and there is an elephant safari camp nearby where you can organise a ride through the jungle. Many Samui tours include a refreshing stop at the Na Muang Waterfalls on their itinerary.

Great fun place to experience Koh Samui attractions such as elephant rides and photos with a leopard. The waterfall is a bit misleading in that you can walk in the heat halfway up a mountain or take a 4WD open backed vehicle up there. It is so rough I pulled a shoulder muscle. And whe you pay and arrive, it is a very precarious track to the waterfall. I didn't make it but friends did and they were a bit disappointed. We were lead to believe swimming would be great but no so. Lunch wa s a basic buffet but very tasty. We managed to spend a half day there and then went to the Island View Restaurant just down the road. Great place to end the day with swimming, cocktails and a meal.

We drove to here on scooters from chaweng beach. The waterfall is part of a wildlife sanctuary. You ride elephants, take picture with a leopard, restaurant,etc. We took pictures with the leopard.The waterfall is bit of walk if you dont want to hire the jeep.The waterfall itself is very beautiful. You can swim in it, lounge in it and even jump into it. Though jumping takes some courage as the water is not very clear. But theres a spot where it is very deep and hence jumping there is safe.Waterfall comes down with great force but you can actually sit under it, if you know the technique :)

Having parked the bike you are invited to take a gentle climb to the waterfall, gentle that is if your s mountain goat, it's hard work when it's hot and sunny, but boy is it worth it, the waterfall itself is ok nothing super special, just a really nice fall, but the views on the way are breath taking so take plenty of wonderful memories away with you,There are usually plenty of elephants wandering around with handler in tow, and the look in really good condition well fed and happy, there's one young one about 4 or 5 and he's a noisy little devil have your photo with him, give him the 100 baht note and watch the handler trying to get it back.
