“Quiet little place”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Falls were beautiful. Altho the street venders had considerable handcrafted items, we found the prices to be better in stores in the cities.

“Pick your time of year and close your eyes to litter”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The falls abbut on a huge valley which must be millions of years old. That is spectacular never mind any water that may or may not come down. As said elsewhere, it can be a dribble or a torrent.
I note the comments about litter and it is true there are still some in evidence but I believe the locals are making efforts to tidy the place up.

There are many walks to be had; you might want to get hold of a local guidebook or ask a local. Give yourself the best part of the day do this justice.

“Not well maintanined”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

It was good to see the falls even though it was rather dry due the season. The general area surrounding the falls view site was not great. The area is poorly maintained and the washing really spoils the view!

“Appalled”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I was disgusted by the amount of people who were doing their weekly washing at the top of the waterfall! The waterfall itself has lost its magic due to this.
