  • Top pools are gorgeous! and much less crowded than lower falls. Kiosk sells great food, camp ground shady and roomy.
  • Beautiful walk. Definitely go to the top rock pools for a dip in cool and refreshing water. Nice views of waterfalls.
  • Amazing waterfalls. Loved swimming below the falls.
  • A very spectacular place to enjoy the morning. Its better to come for 9-10am cause the tourist busses come like ants.
  • We did the loop to the upper pool with a nice self cooked lunch there. Great swim and hot walk.
