“When the river flow generates traces on the gigantic stone for hundred years”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The nicest view is the cliff of gigantic stones on the both sides of river flow in Cunca Wulang. Not the waterfall itself. Anyone can jump down from the cliff to the river with up to 20 m height.
The best time to visit is in dry season (july to sept) to see the clear water. It' s a nice place to dive and swim and to cool your body after walking down the valley for 40 minutes from the last village (post guard). Wear the appropriate boot and prepare your swimsuit.
A guide will lead the way to the waterfall. Bring some snack and drink to keep you energised. The whole tour takes about 1 hour walking + swimming time. Just now, there is no changing room available. It takes one hour to reach to the last village where we park our vehicle from Labuan Bajo. 45 minutes on the good road and 15 minutes on bumpy path.
Don' t go there unless you are fit enough for walking down and up the valley. Years ago the villagers provide horses to take you to the waterfall. But I think it is based on request.
Be sure to leave the area before the sunset unless your vehicle has ample light during the trip back, because no light along the road back through the windy road to Labuan Bajo.
We can see the most beautifull view during sunset at the point where good road meets bad road. We can see mountain, paddy field, the sea and the islands.
It's worth the trip.

“two stream waterfall”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The walk to the falls was interesting. The waterfall itself is interesting. Possibly during monsoon it should look better.

“Lovely waterfall but a tough walk in & out.”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The waterfall and the route to it are interesting as it is off the beaten track and you see the locals going about their daily life. On the day we went there appeared to be a funeral underway with all the locals gathered just up the road from the waterfall pathway entrance.
We were surprised that it was a 2 hour tough walk to the waterfall, with a steep 45 min downhill and 1 hour climb back up. It is lovely and great to swim once you are there, but we felt uncomfortable by the villager beside the waterfall wanting an extra 30,000 per head to go in, despite his sign saying 'donate if you would like to'. I don't think he knew that this was written on the sign!
