It’s a great spot to walk to, about a 1.7km stroll from the main road. It can be hard for some on the way back to the road. The path is strewn with so many shops selling food and drink items, and it’s such a...More

Lovely waterfall, with a nice (if hot and sweaty) walk through the jungle. We went late in the day, so there were not too many people. However, the number of stalls packing up suggests that it would have been really busy earlier in the day.

To get to these Falls you have a 1.5 km trek from the road over roughing paths and quite a lot of steps, hence you need to be fairly fit. However, the walk is enjoyable with some good views and at some points lots of...More

hi, yes, you can, it also depends on the time of the year i guess. sometimes in dry season, there might not be enough water. Also, you need to walk quite a bit to get to it, which i think makes the swim more pleasant...
