HIKING AND WATERFALLS
There is a number of hiking trails, view points, creeks and water falls on the Island. Many of them are in the Thong Nai Pan area. Koh Phangan also has several beautiful waterfalls, which is a must see.
Wang Sai (North East)
Wang Sai waterfall is situated on the North West coast of the island near Mae Had. It flows best after heavy rains and has a number of pools to cool off in. It certainly isn't the biggest waterfall on Koh Phangan, but it's a beautiful stretch of fresh water in a lovely spot
Phaeng Waterfall (South West)
One of the island's grandest waterfalls is a steep 250 m walk up a jungle trail. Walk a further 200m up the path and it brings you to a fantastic mountaintop viewpoint. Nearby, there is also a long winding foot trail that leads up the mountain Khao Ra peak and viewpoint.
Thaan Sadet (North East)
Thaan Sadet waterfall was first visited by Thai Royalty in 1888 when King Rama V left an inscription on a rock that remains today; he revisited the same spot more than 10 times. The present King Bhumibol has also been to this sacred series of falls, where the river water are used in certain Royal Ceremonies. It is a fairytale of huge granite boulders and multitudes of fresh water pools and can be walked its full length of 3 km.
Thaan Prawet (North East)
Thaan Prawet is another long scenic series of waterfalls that can either be accessed from Thong Nai Pan Noi beach or from the main road above the bay.
