This is my second visit and it is truly a majestic sight. Still in very dry conditions this waterfall did not disappoint. A great next stop after completion of Cango Caves. A definite add to anyone's bucket list.

What a great view. Make sure to pack your costume and bring a picnic basket. Bring along the whole family, although this is not wheelchair friendly and it requires you to take a short hike, but it is well worth it.

We drove a bakkie so the road was pleasant to drive with the windows down and overlooking the farm plantations. Waterfall was stunning and the walk up there was very refreshing. A climb up halfway is possible but only for the more flexible.
