Long hike but worth it. There are actually 2 falls, a smaller and a larger one. Really beautiful waterfall you can swim under. The "monorail" coming back is fun, unique and very bare bones. It's powered by what looked like a modified lawn-mower engine and pulled a string of seats with no sides or roof, just handrails in front. Passengers... More

We did the zipline down to the falls, it was a really fun time. The falls were beautiful and then we didn't want to wait for the tram so we walked back up. It was a fairly easy walk and a pretty walk.

Pith we travelled at the start of the wet season as the waterfall was just a trickle, however the highest mountain range biplane I have been on. Do the full package, all 4 as they are long, high and fast. BIG BIG Hint though, pay the extra 10 for the monorail back to the top, do not walk...

The hike from the parking lot is all downhill through a mix of native jungle, along a river bed and finally arriving at the falls which were far bigger than the pictures I'd seen lead me to believe. You get some history on the way down crossing the old narrow gauge train tracks from the former Japanese bauxite mines. It... More

I haven't been to any waterfalls in Hawaii... so I was impressed with this. Nice hard hitting water coming down. Not a deep pool to swim in but can still cool off. Pretty decent hike back up...enough to feel like a workout!

The waterfall is nice, but something amazing. It is though a good hiking exercise to get there. There is also a posibility to take a monorail train or a zip line down the hill. I highly recommend taking the monorail train up the hill if the physical condition is not that good. Prices are negotiable... :) Also do not miss... More

Standing in the Ngardmau Falls on Babeldaob Is., the biggest and highest in Palau, was very refreshing after the long, hot walk down to it. The hike back up was obviously much tougher and made up for days not spent at the gym. I can't find any official length for the hike, but I'd bet it was over a mile.... More

While we the there the guys who run it had a dying sea turtle in a polistyrene crate, some wild caught fruit bats in a tiny cage and an alligator in another tiny pen on a painful looking wire leash... The Zip lining was ok but there are much better waterfalls in the area so please don't go and give... More
