  • There is a pool and the tree stump. Walk on it or suspend yourself from it seen under the cascading water. So cool!
  • Amazing powerful waterfall! It's well worth the walk
  • This are my favorite falls in the GOR. Be sure to take your tripod for some amazing long exposure pics
  • Tranquil and serene waterfall. The drive is a bit of a squeeze on the road in. You have to be very cautious on this road. The walk down to the falls is very steep on the man made path. If you are not that fit i warn you it is quite a climb coming back to the above car park.
  • Beautiful views that you can never forget. Only negative point is those steps that you need to walk down to get there. Not recommended if you have difficulty with walking for whatever reason.
