The park has hiking sticks available to use which were helpful in the beginning and while walking across the river to the water fall. The hike isn't bad but if you are not in best physical shape, they have a monorail train that can take you down and up for an additional fee (remember it takes 20 min to go... More

. . .always wonder when a coconut will visit their noggin. It is a long trip to the hospital from the falls. I wouldn't chance it. Visitors don't seem to realize where the uprooted tree that is at the bottom of the falls had to have come from.

We visited for part of a day on an around the island tour. It was raining that day, so the walk down was slippery. Thankfully a guide from Palau Adventures was taking a group down and helped us, too. (Thank you, Fonzie). The falls were beautiful with a LOT of water (because of the rain). We too the "monorail" up.... More

Had a great day here lots of fun. We made a bit of a mistake with an expensive camera and took it behind the waterfall. That was the end of that camera. We had to wait until we got back to the UK to take it back to the shop and get our money back. Do take care when under... More

After you pay 10USD as entrance/tax you walk down through the jungle into a small open forest and then down a river bed until you end up at the waterfall. We did the hike in flipflops so it's pretty well maintained and easy to do. There's also a monorail and a zipline you can use (for an additional cost) but... More

Its is a great natural beauty of Palau that this falls is there. Although it is not much high from sea level we can see this beauty here.

Ngardmau Falls is an easy drive around the ring road from Koror town, and it's easy to spot the entrance. The hike is fairly steep, but not too long, and you are rewarded with a great waterfall at the end. Note that a portion of the trail leads you next to, or in the case following a heavy rain, through... More

It is one of the great place for hiking and sightseeing in Koror. The falls is fabulous and there are lots of activities to do like zip line, cable cars or hike to reach water fall

Ngardmau Falls is the highest waterfall in Palau at about 50-feet high. The falls are located off the western highway about 18 miles from Koror. They are located about 1 km from the entry down a steep slope to a river cataract that runs into the river that flows from the falls. Beautiful jungle scenery and warm, clear water make... More
