Namtok Chum Saeng or Namtok Sai Rung  In the rainy season, a lot of water cascades down the boulders in rainbow splashes. This is how it is called Namtok Sai Rung or Rainbow Waterfall.

Namtok Bok Krai At the end of the road, a 20-metre walk through farmland and a moist forest will lead to this enormous waterfall that runs throughout the year.

Khlong Nakha Wildlife Reserve Nakha boasts stunning mountainous scenery, and is home to the highly endangered Water Lily, known locally as the Yah Chong. This fresh-water plant has unusually long leaves and delicate white flowers that bloom from October to December. Unfortunately, the water lily faces serious threats from river dredging and collection for resale as aquarium plants. To help save the Water Lily, locals formed a conservation group to protect its habitat, and now offer rafting excursions to raise public awareness of this beautiful plant. Profits are used by the club to pay for school trips. The club also sponsors a nursery that is used by the youth group for replanting the water lilies.

Another highlight is the nearby Klong Nakha Wildlife Sanctuary, which takes its name from the area's largest river and adjoins the larger Klong Saen protected area in Suratthani Province further to the east.

Khao Fa Chi  So named because of its resemblance to a traditional Thai food cover, Fa Chi hill is located in Tambon Bang Kaeo. The hill provides an excellent vantage from which to see two rivers, the Kra Buri and the La-un, converge. Japanese soldiers used this area as a port, sending support to Burma during the Second World War.
