Nice walk down to the falls or you can take the zip line. The one rail train back up the hill is a hoot.

Beautiful small waterfall, a nice walk downhill will get you to this little waterfall. The path can be slippery and muddy , especially after rainfalls. You get a nice impression of the vegiitation of the island . Walking back can be quite exhausting due to temperature and humidity , some people call the little train for help which is quite... More

It's such a nice play. We could chill down under the waterfall...and the most funny thing was the chicken around it :D

The hike down can be a little slippery, but I would not recommend the monorail train down as it seems a bit rickety for the terrain. You'll pass a WWII Japanese Bauxite mine on the way down as well as a zip-line. The ponds along the way are very scenic and worth checking out. The culmination of the trip comes... More

Did this hike when I had a spare half day/few hours before leaving Palau. The entire thing takes about two hours - easy hike in and out, and a nice, refreshing waterfall to reward you (you'll be sweaty and sticky by the time you reach it) at the end!

This waterfall and surrounding is beautiful and another delight in Palau. Great for sitting in the streams as you get to it and ultimately rewarding when you see the big falls. We got lucky and had it all to ourselves for about 5 minutes and that was a treat.

Best Zips I have ever seen / done -- fast, long, scenic. Hike is not too strenuous, but borderline dangerous in the rain. Waterfalls are nice but not breathtaking. Overall, if you have the time to burn (off gassing from diving, etc.), not a bad 1/2 day trip. For me, the Zips were the only part of the excursion I... More

Grab a coconut from the ladies at the top and enjoy working your way down to the falls through a number of different ecosystems. Look for fish and tadpoles on the rock flow, keep an eye out at ground level for tiny pitcher plants and in the trees for much larger ones. You'll need to take plenty of water and... More

It is a good hike along jungle path. It is a tallest waterfall in Micronesia. Please be caution as the hike path can be slippery. Entrance fee is USD10.

It was quite a strenuous walk to (and from) the falls, especially as you have to cross a patch of very slippery rock. Follow the monorail if you are in doubt where to go. You could always just take the monorail or the zip-line, I guess. The waterfall is beautiful, and my family had a nice refreshing 'shower'. Entrance fee... More
