More to see in Ko Pha Ngan Island
One of the most interesting places for active tourists on Ko Pha Ngan is the Than Sadet National Park, located in the vicinity of the Royal River. The river was named so because the king of Thailand Rama 5 visited this place once and later he returned to the river 14 more times. Then, he ordered to open a national park here. Anyone can come to this territory, but if you have no sense of direction, it is better to explore the island with an organized group. Moreover, you should know that if you come here in the rainy season, you will go to the park on a very bad road. There is a waterfall of the same name on the territory of Than Sadet Park. It is a set of cascades which length is three kilometres. Its water is considered to be sacred. You can climb the Khao Ra mountain in the Park. There is an observation deck on its top, which provides an amazing view on the island and neighbouring Koh Tao and Samui. Despite the fact that the height of the mountain is only 630 meters, the way to its top is quite difficult, especially for unprepared tourists.

There are a lot of waterfalls in the jungle of the island, most of them are popular among tourists. Sramanora, Than Pravet and Wang Sai are waterfalls that every person should visit.
