Menchum Falls, Wum

4.0
#4 of 8 in Things to do in Northwest Region
Among the largest in this part of the continent, Menchum Falls represent a scenic and memorable work of nature in the middle of the lush forest. You'll need to take a hike to the falls along the river of the same name. The steady water suddenly breaks its constant flow and cascades into a pool underneath. You can watch the falls from the viewing platform and several benches behind a protective cement wall. Using our custom trip planner, Wum attractions like Menchum Falls can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
