  • Lovely spot. There are multiple walks that go to the falls, the most frequented is the falls walk starting just by the Skotel. Very gentle loop walk with some great views of the mountain and the chateau. The lower walk is more varied and slightly harder than upper. You can walk behind the falls
  • There is a lovely 6 km (4 mile) circuit from near the Chateau to this beautiful waterfall and back. It is a good surface and fairly level. The views are tremendous, the flora fascinating and the 2 main waterfalls magnificent.
