This waterfall is a little hidden gem, not so many people know it. The walking path towards the peak of the waterfall is excellent. The parking is free along the marked road. Comparing with other chargeable scenic spots, here is free for everything! You just...More

Quite a hike to get to, but scenery very good and a spectacular waterfall once you get up close. Allow several hours for the round trip.

We gave ourselves 2 hours max before we had to leave and it turned out to be a very pleasant walk in a spectacular landscape with the falls at the end to sit and admire. We made it back in time without any hurry and...More
