A break in the weather of a very rainy summer allowed us to sneak in a visit between the days of steady downpours. All that rain provided amazing waterfalls to see and hear.

The lakes are nice and the waterfalls are nice. the colour is really nice of the water. And the fish in the water can clearly be seen and make it interesting.

Flooded at the time but made for an interesting walk. Still very beautiful. Our shoes were totally soaked through but it was worth it to see the rest of the beauty offered at the park.

You can make your way around the lower lakes if you walk quickly in a couple of hours. It's a gorgeous, tranquil setting. Amazingly beautiful. Take your camera!

These lakes are unbelievable, when you venture down from the entrance and see the colours against the rocks and greenery it really is like something you will have never seen before. The walkways, little and large waterfalls connecting the lakes are also lovely, small fish swimming about just add to their character.

If you have limited time, or fear a little climbing, this route is ideal for you: you get an overall image of the park, without making to much effort.
