We went on a damp cloudy day, but the sun came out which made the views of the falls even more spectacular. This is not for the faint-hearted - there are over 600 steps down and then up the other side, and some are steep...More

It's a shame you didn't think much of our Welsh Waterfall. It's actually very spectacular right now due to all the heavy rainfall we have just experienced. I hope that you liked Wales in general.

I almost didn't do the walk to the falls, because a lot of the reviews said how difficult the walk is. Fortunately my boyfriend was extremely adamant we do it, despite my protests - and, as much as I hate to say it, he was...More
