There are three waterfalls here. The main one lies at the bottom and is really beautiful. This place is touristy and one can find a lot of crowd. Go early to avoid the crowd.

Yes there is ample space on the way to the falls and near the falls as well. But its better to have your food near the market area. As the fall area should remain clean.
