Bang Pae Waterfall

Bang Pae Waterfall

Bang Pae Waterfall is located on the northeast of the island in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park. Though quite a small cascade Bang Pae is Phuket’s largest waterfall. The 10 minute walk from the car park through the shady forest is very pleasant and the pool at the base of the waterfall is great for a dip in the cool water.

Getting There

You can get to Bang Pae by road by taking the exit heading east (Paklok Road) from the Heroines’ Monument on Thepkasattri Road, north of Phuket City. After about 9kms there is a left turn next to an elephant trekking camp. There is also an 8km trail through Khao Phra Thaeo National Park from Ton Sai waterfall to Bang Pae if you feel up to it.

Bang Pae is also home to the Phuket Gibbon Rehabilitation Centre, an NGO run project which adopts gibbons in captivity and returns them to the wild. The centre can be found near Bang Pae waterfall. See their website for more details:
