Based on other reviews, I was expecting a short hike to a waterfall that wouldn't be great. We ended up napping up at the middle falls and waded in at the top falls. We didn't wear bathing suits, but I would if I went back....More

Had high hopes from this place, unfortunately the waterfall is not that amazing or exciting.. located on the hill side, the walk towards the waterfall itself amongst green forest area is the saving grace of this place. There are three different waterfalls on the slope....More

Short hike to waterfall,short of 400 steps to climb up. A bit overrated,looks great on photos but when you get there not much to it.Perfect for families with kids,small pools of water for a swim.

Head over the small bridge, past the small cafe on the left and up the stone steps to start the walk. The falls themselves (3 accessible plunge pools) were quite underwhelming. The water didn’t look clean enough to swim and there was rubbish around the...More

such a place for calm in jungle so for me you can take a day rest to visit this place although the facilities was poor.

Read the reviews, tried it. Did not think it was special. Ok for getting exercise but too much to say it was beautiful or 5 star. As for a swim...it is pretty dirty water and no idea what rocks, rusting metal and garabage awaits you....More

While it is in a nice jungle setting, with bird and insect sounds, it is a bit remote and the place is quite run down with lack of maintenance and broken tiles etc. The only toilet near the entrance is rather shabby. Would have gone...More
