What people are saying:

The Kathu waterfall is not a large flowing sheet of water that we typically associate with waterfalls. The Kathu falls is rather a series of drop pools with water cascading through them. My affinity for Kathu falls is not the falls itself, but rather the hike up to the falls. The relatively challenging walk up will likely have you breaking a sweat; the drop pools allow for refreshing breaks on the way up. The falls allows for a chance to connect with nature and experience something different other than the numerous tropical beaches available in Phuket.

    No water

    Disappointing visit to a waterfall with no water there. Was expecting a nice day out to escape the heat but to no avail. Wouldn’t recommend coming

    Just a nature walk

    We were told that Kathu Falls must be visited while in Phuket. However it just turned out to be a damp squib. It is at best a short nature walk p a hillock along side a slow and shallow gurgling strea...

    Difficulty steps to take

    Need to fair bits of climbing the steps to go up to the waterfall. Unfortunately, we were informed of 2 snakes are in front of our paths, so we only climbed half way.
