Super nice. easy hike to a viewing point of the waterfall, can't get any closer though which is a shame. The water is jade green! Big group of cows and calves in the parking too, interestingly.

I took a boat cruise. The boat stopped and we all got out. I had a long and sometimes arduous hike to reach this sight. It was worth the hard work. It's really spectacular!!!

Kind of a jungle like rain forest. Love the diverse flora! Definitely worth your time. There is a nice little cafe for tea, and a snack too.
