Lovely hike through the cloud forest leading down to the base of a waterfall. Hike is moderately strenuous and slippery in some places. Benches are provided along the way.

Be careful because it was a bit slippery, but it was the rainy season. Worth the hike and you get to see some gorgeous birds while out there as well.

Great waterfall, but not an easy hike if you're not in the best shape!! Going down was easy, but the hike back up is no joke.
