A powerful waterfall visible from above or below (small charge to take an elevator to the bottom) you’ll be glad you came. It’s a short walk from the bus stop and there are snack and food vendors nearby. You can get great photos from either...More

We loved this waterfall :) there are two level viewing platforms. We went in June and there was plenty of water in the falls - paid parking is short walk away from the falls :)
