A steep hike to the nearest falls, water was cold and fast flowing so declined an opportunity to swim. We were on an escorted tour so only had time to visit one waterfall. Enjoyed the trip.

While the waterfall is modest, the larger setting is gorgeous. You are in the midst of a Jurassic Park like cloud rain forest. The preferred way to get there is via the one minute Tarabita cable ride over a spectacular gorge. Once on the other side you can spend much of the day hiking the trails and cooling off in a half dozen different cascade pools over a 3 mile stretch of which Nambilla is the closest and largest. While Nambilla, unlike other cascades there, has bathrooms and a changing area, it's not swimmable after heavy rains, while the other cascade pools are.

Beautiful area to take a 1.5-2 hour hike. At the waterfall there is a changing room to switch to your swimming suit. I saw a toucan on the hike out. The cable car ride was a beautiful view

The hike to the falls was beautiful. I think I stopped every ten steps to ooh and aah over the beauty of it all. I fell in love with the Mindo Cloud Forest and can't wait to go back!

Surprised myself by managing to take the ‘ tram ‘ as our guide called it ( it is basically a zip line cradle !) as I am not very good with heights, but really didn’t have time to think about it ! - then it was a very slippery hike down and up again to this waterfall . If you get a chance of a hiking pole use it - I did and really was impressed at how it helped balance on the slippery wet trail .you also need trainers or good walking shoes with good tread soles. On the way back actually enjoyed the ‘ tram’ / gondola / basket whatever u wish to call it !
