An idyllic getaway known for its sun-drenched beaches, magical sunsets and lush greenery, the island of Phuket is a true paradise. Nature lovers have much to see and explore when here and not to be missed is a chance to visit the island’s waterfalls which provide a cooling respite for visitors as well. One such site worth heading to is the Kathu Waterfall set amidst jungle landscapes.
Within easy reach of the Kathu Market, this scenic waterfall is best visited during the months between June and November since the monsoons bring an increased flow of water. The falls which is made up of a series of cascading sections also has drop pools at certain sections where one can hop in and cool off!
Before heading up Kathu Waterfall one can buy water and snacks from one of the shops below since the climb can be tiring and one is bound to get hungry or thirsty during all this outdoor exertion. If you are travelling with kids you may want to stop at the first level drop pool since the climb here is not that strenuous and one has the added bonus of unwinding in the water as well.
Those looking for more outdoor adventures can continue their trek up the waterfall. As you go higher the climb gets harder so be prepared for some rewarding exertion. Along the way you will pass jungle areas which add to the site’s charm. There are steps here as well that make the ascent easier and you can take as much rest as you need along the way and admire the picturesque scenery that abounds. Remember to be careful when climbing up the rocks in which the water cascades however, since it will be slippery.
This is just one of the many sites that you will come across when exploring this enchanting island. Finding Phuket luxury accommodation is a great way to enjoy the very best in contemporary comforts and conveniences along with exceptional service. Looking out across the Andaman Sea in Cape Yamu, Point Yamu Phuket is one such Phuket luxury resort which offers a truly stylish rest that features a range of wellness treatments that help you find true holistic healing for mind, body and spirit.
