The cool sound of water tumbling down a rocky cliff face and into a pool greets you at Na Muang Falls.
Nestled amongst the island's central mountains, the falls have two tiers: a lower stretch easily reached by foot and a higher tier that’s best reached by hiking or riding on elephant back. The lower tier of falls is suitable for swimming.
The road to the lower falls is lined with food stalls and souvenir vendors, and elephant handlers offer their animals for rides to the top tier.
Na Mua Falls is in the south of Koh Samui, 3 km (1.5 miles) inland from the coastal resorts.
The falls are just off the road connecting Ban Huan Thanon and Na Thon.
