In Phuket, there are not many waterfalls in principle, not to mention some large-scale landmarks, amazing view and ears. Therefore, initially it makes sense to consider Phuket waterfalls are more likely just like a place to walk in the woods, but with Bonus – swimming in fresh water. Definitely not to be expected. unusual spectacle from Bangphe. If you need really high waterfalls and spectacular views, then this is for you to go to the north of Thailand, where kilometer mountains and hundred-meter waterfalls. However, with all said, the Bangpe waterfall in Phuket is considered one of the most big ones.

Bang Pe Waterfall
The height of the Bang Pe Waterfall (Bangpae Waterfall) is only 15 meters, but this is not just a figure, but fifteen meters of sheer falling water, unlike most Phuket waterfalls that look like cascade gurgling on large stones. In simple terms, the waterfall Bangpe is a classic of the genre that looks very nice on photo and live, he has a cupable backwater, and in general, by the combination of virtues he deserves a separate visit. From parking to go along the path along the riverbed literally about ten minutes, leisurely pace.
I note that the trail is simple, periodically with ascents up the hill, partially covered, so a person can handle trekking any physical training. As I said, the visit has sense to be considered simply as a walk through the jungle, although if you were already in a similar place before, for example, at the Kata Falls, or somewhere on Samui, it will be all the same. The same jungle and river. Thats there is, if this 15 meter waterfall is the biggest here in Phuket, then you need to understand what is in principle the waterfalls on the island.
As the path goes along the river bed, you will be come across the font of different depths and you yourself will see which ones Cupable, and which are not. I give a hint – around the cupable all trampled. By the way, while I remembered – the road to the sights passes through the valley, which is densely planted with rubber plantations. Keep in mind that if you go savage, it is not worth it once more. wander into the landing of the Hevea – there love to hang around the snake. And also, by the road to vodpadu Bang Peh is an elephant farm where you can feed and ride on elephants. Given the nuances of education and training elephants, as well as their torn ears and hundreds of small scars on their heads from the driver’s hook, these rides – to the amateur, to whom I myself I do not carry.
The road to the waterfall is very beautiful
Along the way there are such authentic houses.

Near the parking there is a pretty lake
The trail is completely sanitized.
At the end of the path you will run into a waterfall, it is here alone, and near it there is a font. And in the place where the water falls, the depth is greater two meters (not in the dry season of course). Around this place – waist-high. And the font is quite narrow, a large crowd there is not you jump, and since the tourists are found here in large numbers, you understand, swim in proud loneliness does not threaten you. By the road has more pleasant and comfortable places in terms of swimming. But it is in this, and only in one place, that there is a waterfall where you can partially stand under falling water.
Separately, I want to note that if you have arrived purposefully here to swim and spend time culturally – do not forget about propriety. This is the south of Thailand, there are many Muslims for whom swimming topless or in overt swimsuits can come as a shock, right up to the call of the police. This place is not popular only from tourists. Thais come to Bangpa in large numbers, and they usually hold picnics in the family circle and with children. Despite the stupid prejudices, they should be considered, for tourists here we are, not they.

Before entering the waterfall there is a rehabilitation center. gibbon, I did not get there, but judging by the reviews there to look particularly nothing, at best, you can see gibbons from afar, nobody is close let go. Gibbons confiscated from smugglers, illegal zoos and just owners who are abusive animals. Of the sixteen species on the planet, four species of gibbons found in the nature of Thailand.
The rehabilitation center does not charge for admission, but not refuses donations and offers a guardianship service which will cost you 1,500 baht per year.

Entrance to the territory with Bang Pe waterfall is 200 baht. But I arrived at 16-45 and did not pay anything to anyone – in the ticket booth not It was, and so lucky, not only me. Consider it a life hack for thrifty. Moreover, at five in the evening there are already few people, the sun is almost not visible – it is behind the mountain. Well, in general – cool, good, refreshing.
The gibbon center is open from 9 to 16-30 except Saturday, and the waterfall open to entry from 9 to 17, but in fact I went out at 18, and people are all still going forward, that is, there is nothing closed and you can even early in the morning calmly come.
