  • well off beaten track to access, have very good mosquito repellant on prior to walking into the area 
  • Amazing that I have had the chance to solo with Eric rando pacific (I'm not sure society) a great backpacker but also a botanist that transforms this hike into a great discovery of the flora of the arrival at the foot of the waterfall is magical, bathe in a single basin in the middle of nowhere under a waterfall of 130 m , feels (for a moment only, alas) the Queen of the world thanks to Eric who made me spend a wonderful day to you who go to Tahiti contact it absolutely
