Directly at the ring road. Beautiful surrounding, be sure to follow the path west of the fall. There you gonna find smaller falls, the last one is in a crevice where you can crawl in, if you don`t mind to get wet, it`s absolutely worth...More

The front view doesnt look impressive, but the walk behind the waterfall was an extremely slippery one.

A truly spectacular experience - being able to walk behind the falls. Definitely bring rain wear and, in cold weather, yak trax or cleats for your boots.

Not sure what the weather will be in December. We visited in October, and there were already quite a few slippery places. So, I am not sure walking behind the waterfall is a good idea in December. On the other hand, if you... More

As of today, you are not permitted to walk behind the falls. This is a temporary measure, due to dangerous rock falls from the cliff above directly onto the path that goes behind the falls.
