  • Stunning waterfall and relatively easily accessible. However, we were surprised with the number of hiking routes available to reach the top, so we didnt have time to hike to the top. Would recommend.....  more »
  • In about 2 hours you can walk to the top. During this walk you have many see points from where you can see the waterfall. Halfway is a restaurant for a nice stop.  more »
  • An amazing waterfall! One of the best I've ever seen. I recommend to take a local taxi to go upstairs. The road is pretty tough
  • Such a beautiful place. The waterfall is the largest in Europe and after heavy rain was totally spectacular. There's a place after point 8 where it flattens out and is great for a picnic.
  • Beautiful and stunning. The walk up is strenuous be warned but it's on a well prepared path. Well worth the effort
  • One of the best waterfalls I’ve ever been to, good upward hiking place. The flow was so nice when you get closer
  • Was ok, but you have to pay for parking and to enter the hike itself. When you can hike more beautiful mountains and peaks for free, this is not the best choice.
