Very beautiful place. It takes a bit effort to get to the waterfalls since there are no proper roads there.

We were never sure if we were on the right trail, but once arrived--great little swimming spot with cool waters and an amazing waterfall! Follow other TripAdvisor recommendations on trails and gear.
