  • It is a beautiful, indescribable and very safe place. There's no difficulty getting to her. About 3 and a half from the state capital (Chihuahua). The walk to the waterfall area is of medium difficulty and the trail to the bottom is advanced, in total the tour lasts about 3 hours. I recommend going in rainy seasons (between July to October and wearing clear waterproof) as it highlights the beauty of both the waterfall and the trail. Delicious food at the start and very cheap ($7 USD per person approximately)

  • Unfortunately we were there when the 9/5 misfortune occurred where a 50-year-old man slipped from above the waterfall and lost his life. We were at that moment until the bottom of the waterfall veil. Start the comment with this story because it is very dangerous to try to jump the rocks of the waterfall, the stones are slippery, there are many people who do that by saving time passing by the Hanging Bridge or for taste or maybe by a photo. If you want to decender I recommend you go in August to October, rainy season so that you see the waterfall in all its splendor. The descent route you do in 2 1/2 hours, depending on how fast they go, to climb, you require up to 3 hours because it gets very complicated. Wear serum or powerade, shoe for mountain or tennis, also a raincoat so as not to get wet, if you can something to eat, biscuit or energy bar for return. If you travel with children you can do it, but you must go very slow because it is very easy to slip, the children get tired fast then you must go with a lot of tempo to climb up little by little and not tire them. When you get down it's an indescribable feeling, it's a beautiful thing you can't miss. "Attracted by the beauty of the young woman and possessed by the spirit of the jealous Father put difficult obstacles to conquering her. We arrive without measuring dangers to its entrails, being mesmerized by the beautiful veil and pondered magic of the haunting place. We've already gone crazy."

  • This is a very nice park and make sure you park where the water falls off the cliff if you are planning on walking down to the bottom cause it's a much longer walk if you park where you can see the falls from a distance
  • One of the many wonders of the Sierra Madre. The trail to the falls has been much improved. The hike to the base of the falls really is worth it although the trail is in poor condition. The parking lot at the main trailhead has food stands that offer good food and snacks. Remember to bring water on your hike. The wall on the right side of the falls (looking out) has several climbing routes. Try to spot the belay station webbing...
