Phuket can’t compete with Niagara or Victoria when it comes to waterfalls. However, we do have several picturesque cascades, and during the southwest monsoon a large volume of rain is deposited on the hills, so the run-off can produce some spectacular volumes over the waterfalls.
One near to the main resorts is Kathu Waterfall, which has a shaded walk through the jungle above the falls. The only sounds to disturb the serenity are the wild bird calls and the sibilance of the rushing waters. At the foot of the cascade is a small restaurant - a favourite meeting place for Thai families on the weekend.
