  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I don't think there is a God but if there is, he lives there. The lady that runs the place is just so friendly. You have to see it.
  • It is indeed a great place to visit, I highly recommend it. There's a fee to pay at the entrance. The parking space is not big. There are several trails, I kinda mixed some to have a good look on the park. I started with the river walk on my way up, it was simply gorgeous! There is a green garden by the river. Then I continued with the red trail, I went to the top of the waterfall, the view is surreal! I walked a few meters on the yellow trail just for the view point. Back to the red one, on the way down I saw another big lake following another cascade (smaller but beautiful). To see the roockie bridge, I turned to the purple trail, green everywhere, amazing! At some point I continued with the green trail to return. Saw the very bottom of the cascade, lots of sheeps as there is a farm there. Not even the rain ruined the day! Just don't forget to bring waterproof clothing and shoes!
  • A beautiful, well run park that’s worth the small admission. We hiked the red trail over the waterfall which was steep and occasionally muddy, so wear appropriate footwear and take water. The views are spectacular. Pack a picnic; there are lovely picnic spots under the waterfall. Stop by the circle stones before the park, they are so cool. The road to the park is very narrow. Go slow!
  • One of the most beautify and serene places on the planet. Untouched beauty.
  • Amazingly beautiful location. The waterfall was fantastic
