The sheer volume of water that that goes over these falls is what really makes them amazing. As you stand at drink it in, you see, feel and hear the power of the water. Definitely worth a visit whether it's your first or 20th time!!

This attraction is not to be missed if you enjoy grand scale. With a huge mountain and a green lake as a backdrop, and a roaring falls, there’s a good reason that tourists like this area. Be prepared for the changeable weather in this area.
