Secret Water Falls, Maenam Ko Samui Oct 05, 2009
Had enough of the beach & want to cool down?
Need some excercise?
... well head up to the "jungle"! & visit one of the several Water falls on the Island of Samui...
The Secret Falls are not the largest waterfall on Samui, but a nice way to spend a hot afternoon.. it's about 5 to 10 c cooler up there!
The road up to the Falls, once you turn off Soi (Road 5) Watch for Canopy Adventure tour sign, on the left, about 3 Kms from Maenam. The road can be a little rough, so take it easy! Just keep heading straight up... & up... (do not turn off once on the gravel road)
Park, where it says "Park here" & hoof it the rest of the way, about a ten or fifteen minute walk.... Starting up the steep gravel road, (no don't try driving up that! ) then walk along the trail...
You'll come across a hut, with some nice locals, who work the "Canopy Adventure Tours" ... Stop & say Hello... they are friendly & speak English very well! Even buy a beer or bottle of water...
You can if you want do the "Jungle Swing" lots of fun! , usual times 10 am & 2 pm... Now that does cost money... but you don't need to do!
Just continue up the trail & view the falls, keep going a little bit further up the trail, & turn off the the right & you get to the base of the falls where you can swim in the pool & cool off!
(Do be careful on some of the rocks below the falls, they can be slippery)...
If you are adventurous type, head up to the right side of the falls... (do not do alone!) then you can get to the top of the water fall area... There is a "rough trail" it's quite pretty up there! Head up stream, there are some smaller falls there too...
If two on a motorbike.... When heading back to your resort down the gravel/ sand road, I would suggest one person walk until the road levels out... (near the dam)... you'll have to judge the road, depending on the season & whether it has been graded recently!
Always wear a helmet on your bike!
