This is worth the stop if you decide to go around the island. It's $10/person. There's a short hike down to the falls or you can ride their tram for a fee.

You can take a tour to the Falls and the monoliths, but they are easy to find by yourself if you have a car available. The hike to the falls is not long. It is a little steep and the steps can be slippery. Be sure to grab one of their hiking sticks as you start the trail.

As I said, probably the best experience of my two week trip to Palau. The nature was beautiful and untouched, there's an opportunity to go swimming. It was a pity tough, that it was not free. Getting there is a bit of a physical exercise too.

A 20 minute walk down through tropical jungle, the path at times gets narrow and a bit muddy, is rewarded at trail end with a spectacular free flowing waterfall. One can wade or swim in the pool at the waterfall. The “eco-park” operates a modest monorail/cog railway that parallels the trail for those who are not feeling as energetic. Take... More

This was one of the best waterfalls we've ever seen and we've been to Niagara & Iguazu. The falls were raging after several days of heavy rains (see our photos). But the attraction was actually the monorail. It's $15/person and this is one time when even if you're a hiker you will really miss out if you don't take the... More

Like what everyone else mentions here, the waterfalls are one of the natural attractions of the Palau area that are beautiful and breathtaking. There is no doubt it is a must see if you want to take a break from all the 3 dives a day excursions. The only concern here is that the facility itself is literally falling and... More

Although there is a tiny monorail train which brings tourists almost to the falls, it is better to hike there. Try to be there in the morning when the jungle is not hot. There is a also a possibility to walk along the old bauxite mine train (suggested!).

Easy walk to a lovely swimming hole and falls. Go behind the falls and enjoy standing in the mist too! You pay to go in - they have a barrel of walking sticks at the top which you might want as you walk down the hill . I see some reviews say it's a hard hike but really it's not... More

Once you start driving on this island you will notice two things: The roads, funded by USA, Japan, and Taiwan are in wonderful shape. After that, you will notice that the signage to help you find your way and destinations, is pretty..... "sparse". Get the best map you can, and learn to spot what few signs there are. That may...
