The waterfall itself is really nice. It's easy to reach on foot whether you're coming from the top or climbing. There is not much around though and the transportation system to get there and come back is not really developed.

The waterfall is totally impossible to get to -we spent the best part of 3 hours trying to get to the summit & it was treacherous especially as it had rained earlier in the day please don't hurt yourself trying.

Not the best waterfall in the world but worth the trek. Two routes available easy route says 1hr 45mins but harder route bit tricky and maybe not negotiable if bad weather

Nice easy walking up with shady paths. Take water and a snack. Backtrack and take the same path back. The steep descent is a little hairy. Lots of mosquitoes after a rainy day. We took tram 5 from the Palace of justice to the Pavlova...More
