After a hot day of hiking, there is nothing more scenic and refreshing than a swim at the base of this waterfall. It is a short walk from the road and was quite private if you are the only ones there. Don't miss it.

This impressive waterfall is a very short distance and just a 5-minute walk from the road, where you can park. Looking up at the water flowing off the cliff face high above is amazing, and whoever wants can enter the pool formed at the bottom...More

It's right by the road, so if you find a place to leave your car (there really isn't any parking by the road) you won't really have to walk for more than 5 mins. The waterfall is very high. If it's a sunny day you...More

A beautiful waterfall with a small lake right behind the village. With a nice path leading from the road it's a must-see. Viewed from the right angles, a rainbow was seen at the end of the waterfall splash.
