The second attraction of Khao Phra Thaeo National Park and the second-highest waterfall in Phuket is located in the Thalang area. Ton Sai Waterfall is a good destination for nature lovers and those seeking an escape from the busy city.
There is a 2 km trekking trail from the park entrance to the waterfall. The road is not easy, with climbs and fallen trees. When visiting Ton Sai Waterfall, it is important to be prepared for a challenging hike, especially for those who plan to reach the top of the waterfall. The trails can be slippery and steep, and visitors should wear appropriate shoes and bring plenty of water.
Flora lovers will notice rare species like white fan palms, bamboo forests, wild orchids, and millennial trees with giant roots. The landscapes are magnificent and sometimes fantastic.
Closer to the waterfall, you can observe birds that have arrived for the winter: the blue nightingale and the tree wagtail.
The Ton Sai waterfall is a multi-tiered waterfall that cascades down the rocks into a series of natural pools. You can enjoy swimming in the cool, clear water or lounging on the rocks. The waterfall is surrounded by a lush jungle, making it a popular destination for hiking and exploring. Several trails lead through the jungle to the waterfall, and visitors can enjoy scenic views of the surrounding landscape along the way.
The entrance ticket to the national park entitles you to visit two waterfalls — Ton Sai and Bang Pae. It is important to remember that the waterfall is located in a national park and to follow the park’s rules and regulations, including respecting wildlife and the environment. Avoid littering or leaving anything behind.
Ton Sai Waterfall is a beautiful and peaceful destination that is worth a visit. On the way to the waterfall, you can visit Prathong Temple, which is located five minutes away.
