Trekking, waterfalls and mountains

What we say: 3 stars



Certainly not most people's raison d'etre for visiting Ko Pha Ngan, but those who do take some time to explore the island's hinterland will find it full of surprises. Ko Pha Ngan's highest peak at 630m is Khao Ra and it's possible to climb up to the top in a half-day from both Chaloklum and Thong Nai Pan.

There's a well-worn route through the jungle to the quiet bays of Haad Thian and Haad Yuan, and the journey takes a couple of hours. It's possible to keep trekking up the east coast as far as Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi, but this could take days and should be attempted by experienced trekkers.

There are attractive waterfalls to visit near Mae Haad (Wang Sai Waterfall), Chaloklum (Paradise Waterfall) as well as some more isolated falls on the east coast.
