“Very beautiful waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Easy to get to, only bring good shoes. The first fall is very beautiful, deep water - good for diving. A bit crowded at times. No need for guide if you are just visiting the first falls.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Don't miss this. Absolutely gorgeous - like paradise. Go early in the morning and you'll have some of the swimming holes to yourself. Be careful, though! Lots of ways to hurt yourself here.

“Refreshing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Hiking to the falls is a great idea on a hot day. The walk goes along the river, under the trees and it is quiet nice. You might need to wear some comfortable walking shoes to get there safely.
The waterfall is gorgeous. The water is good for swimming and there is a great jumping spot for the adventurous ones.

“In love!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The hike was fun and not too strenuous. There are many cascades but the bottom 2 are the best! Anamaya Resort has a private entrance to the part with the rope swing and the tallest lower falls. Absolutely incredible!
