Unbelievable Waterfalls of Koh Samui

The unbelievable Koh Samui waterfalls are an amazing place to go for nice relaxing swim  (

The temperature in the tropics can soar high in certain days particularly in the summer. Everyone wants to get away from the summer heat and be refreshed.  It is great to head somewhere cool and breezy. For those who are planning to have an island getaway, why not consider spending it on the beautiful island of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand just a few hours by boat away from Surat Thani? Its breathtaking natural beauty mesmerizes visitors. There are several Koh Samui attractions that would make your stay truly fun and memorable. Every visitor needs to explore these fascinating Koh Samui attractions to make their trip worthwhile.

The island is famous for its lovely beaches and colourful nightlife but going out into the jungle and outdoors will lead visitors to discover other Koh Samui attractions. Natural wonders await those who want to explore more scenic attractions such as breath-taking waterfalls.

Although other parts of Thailand are more famous for their waterfalls, Koh Samui has its own beautiful waterfalls that are worthy of being explored. Visitors need to trek to reach them though. The journey is not that easy and sometimes it is a long arduous one however if you don’t want to walk to the waterfall then you should consider another option which is riding on the back of an elephant. Elephant trekking is a popular activity in Koh Samui and it makes the journey to the waterfalls easier. Once reaching the waterfalls, however, all those hardships would vanish once you see these stunning Koh Samui attractions.

The beauty of the island obviously extends from its exterior to its interior. The two Na Muang Waterfalls or Purple Waterfalls found south from Nathon at Ban Thurian are quite popular and impressive. They are named that way based of the notable purple shade of the bare vertical surfaces of the rocks. The two lovely cascades can be reached by elephant trekking and by walking. A beautiful natural pool awaits eager tourists in Na Muang 1. After a refreshing swim, they need to follow a track uphill for another 30 minutes before they reach Na Muang 2.

The scenic falls are one of the places that should be visited by every visitor in Koh Samui who wants to relax, swim and enjoy nature to the fullest. Visitors have also an option to explore more of the jungle by organizing a ride through the elephant safari camp nearby.
