The 20 minutes hike to the waterfall could be considered a challenge to those who do not do much hiking. Once we got to the fall, we were so excited and jumped right into the cool water. Perfect place to spend a hot summer day.

Absolutely stunning! There is a pool around the waterfall that you can swim in. The rocks are quite slippery, but you can climb up and get a great shot in front of the waterfall! It's a bit of a hike from the place you arrive...More

If you are not decided to go this fall yet, Why not ? Take a decision to join one of available tours. Otherwise you would miss awesome experience like pure air, great view and peaceful feeling down there !
