View this beautiful attraction from designated viewing spots along the edge. See the water falling about 72m into a river. You may also follow a trail to get a closer view of this attraction downstream. This guided walk may attract a small fee from the local guides. It is an easy descent along a bush, with stones making a neat path downstream. It gets a little tricky and slippery as you get closer to the waterfall.
Wear waterproof clothes and good hiking shoes for the 45 minutes hike downstream. You might get wet when you go too close to the waterfall so carry a change of clothes.
