  • Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Must see! 8km waterfalls trail.. super beautiful and peaceful place ♡ take comfortable shoes with you, water and some food as there is many places for picni on a way.. I will definitely come back there! Good price.
  • It was very good walking round the various waterfall trails. The kids enjoyed it also even though it took us over 4 hours to complete the trail. I would recommend a full day to do the trail as it'll give you the opportunity to admire some of the scenery, take a break and a picnic. I would also recommend wearing since walking boots/shoes or something comfortable on your feet as there are lots of steps and uneven grounds to walk through. Overall, a very enjoyable day and would recommend as a good family day out.
  • It's hard to describe such breathtaking natural beauty as "OK" - it really is more than that. And you have to appreciate the work that has to go into maintaining the paths and keeping them safe. But the entry prices are a real negative, especially for a large family. We spoke to a few people at our campsite who wouldn't go because of the prices. Such a shame. (But if you're minted, definitely go.)
  • This is a really nice walk. It's private land so you need to pay to get in. Does appear lots of people just walk around the entry gates and don't pay. There is ample car parking at the main entrance and the staff were very helpful. Only negative is a lack of bins along the route and Esspecially at places along the path where they were selling food and drinks. Seems a bit strange in such a nice place not to have bins available.
  • The walk is a lovely walk. We enjoyed doing it. There is a refreshment van half way (at least there was when we went) One thing I didn't like at all was the fact you had to pay to do it. Little tip tho. If u do it backwards u dont need to pay.
