It is a nice place but all the stuff is very expensive to buy some goodies. The waterfall is beautifull.

Just stopped there for a quick view. Falls are beautiful. You can see a number of people at the edge of the waterfall washing clothes and so forth. Worth a stop. Be sure to have more time for lunch and shopping.
