After a short drive in the narrow roads, we reached a car park which is about 1-2 km away from the falls, not difficult to conquer. The falls are nice,not that big, but will serve the purpose and give the kids an enjoyable time.

Picturesque drive on the way up. Very accessible walk to the base of the falls, not too challenging going up. Men, women and children of all ages were having a go. Looks like something you'd expect to see in Game of Thrones!

A bit long for the three year old. You'll be carrying him/her most of the way. It's up and down but a very good path.
