Ngardmau Falls, Koror

4.2
#3 of 14 in Parks in Palau
Stand under the rushing waters of Ngardmau Falls, a 30 m (100 ft) high waterfall hidden among the surrounding jungle. Legend has it that a giant eel appeared on the rocks here and lay down for centuries, draped over the edge of the cliff face. Over time, the magic eel--considered a god by the locals--turned into a mighty river. Have a bite to eat in a traditional Palauan hut as the water cascades down, and follow the river through the diverse forest, discovering natural pools and local wildlife.
