“Small falls”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

This a not a big fall, but a nice break during your Horton Plains hike to admire the water and perhaps fuel up if you have not had the chance to do so before you continue the rest of the way. Keep your hands free to help you grip the branches as you climb up and down to get to the falls. Skip this part if it is raining and slippery. Don't attempt this carrying your child.

“Not that exciting”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

The road leading to the fall is of a damp road specially if your’ going on a rainy day(which we went), and it best advice to go thier in the morning or afternoon and not in the evening , cause when you return from their if it’s dark you’ll have a difficult time getting back(which happened to us)
Visiting this place is not advisable if you’re travelling with small children other than that the “bakers fall” is not a very huge waterfall but a normal one

“Huge body of water”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Baker's Falls is inside the Horton Plains National Park. The height of the waterfall is 20 metres (66 ft) and named after Sir Samuel Baker, the famous British explorer, officer, naturalist, big game hunter, engineer, writer and abolitionist.who discovered the falls in 1845. It is known for the tremendous noise created by the water pounding the large rock formation at its foot. Baker is also known for shooting 50 elephants, five deer and two buffalos nearby! The falls, and the 12m death trap of a plunge pool, has claimed numerous lives of reckless tourists.
