Can wallk to the base of the waterfall in dry season when there not much water. Also try climbing up to the top of the waterfall by the road path. From there you can see the surrounding area which is quit beautiful.

if you go to lower aberdeen falls, you can bath close to the waterfall. even on the upper aberdeen falls you can bath. park the car close to the grocery store and walk for few minutes to bath
