  • A really nice hiking trail leads to the waterfall! He is also but not without! Fit, you should be, don't forget drinks. As footwear either rubber boots or strong sandals, mainly water! We were accompanied by the Susie, the dog of our landlady! The waterfall itself is very nice! minimum 2h!

  • We followed the Creek with friends and have 30' run the waterfall is reached. The 'way' is not to be underestimated. Often, we had to walk through the water. Good shoes to cash out. But worth seeing anyway!

  • I visited the place with some local friends, and true that nature throughout the area is overwhelming, we made a picnic and it was fantastic
