The 'sticky' waterfalls are well worth a visit. Definitely the best name for them with it being so catchy, but the falls aren't sticky, the rock type just isn't slippery so you can climb up and down them. You do need to take some care,...More

The trip up to the waterfall was pleasant, got to see alot of the countryside. The falls themselves were nice to look at but any falls here in america are about the same.

We took a taxi from our hotel out to the sticky waterfall. I wasn't sure what to expect. It's not exactly sticky, but not slippery (except where algae has grown on the rock). There are ropes so you can climb up the waterfall. It's a...More
