You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

Fun

Great fun, probably more for kids though. Lots of people and kind of takes away the fun when you have to line up for one sliding rock. It's 5 tala per person for entry.

Great place to cool down. Safe & fun. Abit of a walk down but once you're down its great! We had so much fun!

We got a little lost on our way to the sliding rocks, there are not a lot of signs but we did get there eventually. It is the perfect spot on a hot, humid day as the water is so fresh and cool. There are plenty of stairs on the way down but you can get some great shots from... More

Steep stairs to walk down to get to the sliding rocks but definitely worth it. Had so much fun here.

Nice place to cool off in the waterholes, and fun sliding down the rocks. Is a bit of a hike to get to, with lots of steep stairs to get down to the rock pools. Definitely not one to do if you have any mobility challenges!!

Really enjoyed my time visiting sliding rocks with my family. The lady at the car park was so nice and welcoming and even warned us not to take valued possessions down to the falls as there had been many thefts prior to our visit. Loved the vibe down at the falls, you find yourself encouraging complete strangers to go down... More

A wonderful collection of waterfalls - but the actual sliding down rocks is very scary for the non-so-young-amongst-us - aka moi. However, I thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the cool pool and having the top waterfall shower softly over my head.

Sadden as there was not much water when we went. TBH shouldn't be charged if that's the case. The village have done a good job to add changing rooms which is good to see. When we went to leave though it was pouring and we started to get stuck on the grass so probably best to look at gravelling that... More

We enjoyed ourselves all alone at the sliding rocks. A great way to get refreshed. The climbing is not easy and the sliding not so child friendly all the time. We and our six year old son enjoyed it a lot! If I had kids who don't listen, I wouldn't recommend it, since both climbing and sliding can be dangerous... More

Something fun to do once. Was proud of myself, as a middle-aged woman, for sliding down them all - when my husband didn't.
