An easy walk. Allow minimum 6 hours all up. Allow 2 hours each way walking, prepare for substantial wading. Take bathers and a picnic. Take high clearance 4WD, preferably two in convoy carrying tow rope. Take guides, even if you know the way, if they don't like the weather, listen to them. Do not go if there is surface water...

Tenaru Falls is a spectacular waterfall, falling about 60ft into a clear deep pool. After the 2-2.5hour walk though the jungle to the falls you are more than ready for a swim in the surprisingly cool pool. The walk is relatively flat, but there are a lot of river crossings so your feet will get very wet, and there are... More
