Ngao Waterfall National Park

A very pleasant surprise

Photo of Ngao Waterfall National Park, , Ranong

What we say: 4 stars

The falls cascade down a cliff from a height of over 100 m. During the rainy season the waters fall with a dramatic roar and it's one of Thailand's more impressive waterfalls, but in dry season it's little more than a gentle stream emerging gradually from cliff to cliff.

The base of the falls are located down a pleasant 500 m trail from the Visitor Centre. Head in the other direction and a second trails leads up hill to a viewpoint with clear views of the surrounding mountains and the grass hill of local spirit folklore across the road.

The national park offers some pleasant accommodation options for those who need a break from the world, including some tree house style raised cabins with fans where you can sleep in the tree tops, and more comfortable hill side cottages with air-con and hot water.

How to get there: Follow the road south along Phet Kasem Rd (Rte. 4) and turn left at the sign about 12kms from Ranong. Follow the road for about 700m to reach the park headquarters. While the park makes for a good motorbiking adventure, it may also be reached by some of the long distance larger songthaews that depart from the market on Ruangrat Rd.
