It's a really nice thing these days when you can actually get to view a decent sized waterfall without paying an entrance fee. I was impressed at what was available here..many viewing platforms, fun looking kletter steig and massive hanging staircase. Unfortunately we only made...More

An impressive waterfall in the middle of forests. A water drooping and falling to a depth of 160m. There is a system of trails and bridges around that provide the best view of the waterfall.

Great and short walk if you come from on top if the fall. There is a bug parking place next the the guest house at the top. The trail starts from over there, and so you reach the fall from on top of it.

From parking, depending upon your pace, it might take around 30-45 minutes to reach the waterfall. Walking passage is very nice except the last few hundred meters where it is pretty steep and rough, not suitable for stroller. It was a lovely experience and you...More
