Before heading to the waterfall there is a short trail around a fish pond, a couple of statues and an old temple. The slightly rocky uphill hike up to the waterfall is nice. A little rain makes it muddy so best to wear proper shows...More

The trip up to the waterfall is quite a trek so perhaps this wouldn’t be suitable for those with health conditions. We rode our motorbike and parked at the bottom. Be warned you walk past an awful elephant centre where abuse is rife. It is...More

This waterfall is worth the hike. Wear comfy shoes to help with the walking. I have to say I wore open back shoes but they are an extremely comfy pair and has a great grip so I was fine. Carry water & a snack/sandwich cos...More

We visited this waterfall, as did not want to go past the animals chained up by the other waterfalls. Took about 30 mins to reach the top and was well worth it. I would definitely choose to do this in the morning before it gets...More

There is a very long trek to get to what is called a waterfall. In reality, they're Rapids. They say that visiting them in the wet season is best, however I would not attempt the hazardous and difficult terrain in the wet. Unless you are...More
