Halfway down a steep set of steps you will find a third viewing platform, and at the very bottom a viewing bridge offering additional vistas of the surrounding area .

  • . (02/2017) Amazing waterfall. Easily accessible. You can choose to have a top-down view from the fist viewpoint after a short walk or you can continue walking down the stairs to have best view of the waterfall from the bottom. Due to being very high one, you are prohibited from getting into water or swimming here. Surreal views. Well maintained walkway and bridge viewpoint at the the bottom of waterfall.
  • Rather spoilt by the fact that pollution by local farmers means you can't swim here or drink the water. Pretty shameful. Time we did something about this.
  • Beautiful place. Some climbing up and down the stairs but worth it. Three levels to admire the beauty of the falls. Very close from Hamilton.
  • Really cool waterfall with 3 different viewing levels. 261 steps to the bottom with wooden/dirt stairs and a railing. Wouldn't recommend for for with knee/hip problems and the bottom is wheelchair accessible (can still get to the top) but definitely worth the view if you can make it down. Even getting just to the midpoint offers a spectacular view.
  • Easy access. Stairs all the way now. Toilets. View from top side and bottom.. Can be slippery when rain so be careful.
