The Ton Nga Chang Waterfall is located about 26 km from Hat Yai city in the Ton Nga Chang Wildlife Sanctuary. This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls to be found in southern Thailand and a visit to this wonderful tourist place will leave you with some really happy memories. Since there is no public transportation available from the city to the waterfall, so, the best possible option for a safe and enjoyable road trip is to hire a car in Hat Yai. You can easily get to Ton Nga Chang Waterfall by following the Hat Yai-Rattaphum road for 13 km, then taking a left turn at Ban Hu Rae and driving for another 13 km before arriving at the park. Being such a diverse place, a person needs time to visit each nook and cranny of Hat Yai and depending on Public Transport does not seems to be a good and a cheaper way out, so rent a car with us and travel at your own ease, time and comfort.
The Elephant Tusks Waterfall
Entry inside the Ton Nga Chang Wildlife Sanctuary costs around 100 Baht for children and 200 Baht for adults. Foreigners, however, are charged a considerably higher fee than the locals. Once you get past the entrance, you’ll find that the Ton Nga Chang Waterfall is made up of seven levels. The first level named Ton Ba is a great spot for enjoying picnic and swimming. The second level is Ton Plew with incredible scenes of nature. But it’s the third one which is the most spectacular of all. Known as the ‘Elephant Tusks Waterfall’, this level is where the stream separates into two, resembling the tusks of an elephant. If time permits, you must try visiting the rest of the levels as well. Inside the park, you can also enjoy birdwatching and exploring the several hiking trails. If you happen to be adventurous, you can even try your hand at trekking. With plenty to see and do, Ton Nga Chang Waterfall is well worth every Baht spent.
