Pack a picnic and go for a walk. We walked to the first waterfall and has a brilliant time sitting and playing in the water. It is an easy walk so fine to take kids with.

There are several routes but the most popular is the waterfalls hike. There are at least two of them. The first will take 30-45 minutes and the other one about 1h. There is a longer route which people sleeps overnight. The scenery is breathtaking and...More
