Nang Yom Waterfall

Nang Yom is located to the north east of Koh Chang near to the town of Dan Mai. Nang Yom is a small waterfall with several cascades.

Khiri Phet Waterfall

Khiri Phet is located about 2 kilometres from the fishing village of Salak Phet in the south east of Koh Chang.

Khiri Phet is medium sized waterfall with 2 levels in the rainy season and up to 7 levels in the dry season, when there is less water. There is water in the falls all year round and a pool to swim in on the bottom level.
