  • We opted to see the fall from the platform and quickly concluded that we should have taken the hike. You can walk through the valley to the fall, do that if you want’t the full impression of the fall.  more »
  • These falls are beautiful and the trip to see them is well worth it. We went here as a cruise tour and loved the trip.  more »
  • You have to be there! From beautiful views until you feel dizzy. The weather is not important on condition, but definitely better when it rains heavily ... We recommend it!
  • Great waterfall. If you want to visit the base of the waterfall, be sure to consider at least 1:30 hour for the whole trip. Hiking footwear needed: The path is considered hard. If you're in a hurry, you can view it from above as well, although the view isn't as nice as below
