worth a visit if you haven't seen enough waterfalls. Watch out for the monkeys, they sneak up on you. You can take a walk to half of the waterfall,

This waterfall is beautiful and also serves as a perfect spot for photography. Not the easiest waterfall to call as it is very rocky and slippery. It's a place where lots of locals go to. Nevertheless, be careful of monkeys......these monkeys may snatch away your...More

No you have a perfect view from the main road to take plenty of pictures. When we visited there was a family of monkeys running around as well.
