Majestic is all I can say and the location around it is beautiful. The travel to this place is really tiring and you should keep atleast half a day dedicated to the falls. A good experience.

I would not drive out of your way to see this waterfall. It is on the side of the road. The one at Horton Plains is more impressive.
