Great easy hike for those who want to be surrounded by some amazing landscape. The gardens are $18 to hike, but it includes hiking to the falls, life vests if you want to swim in the fall and the botanical gardens. The whole area is...More

Me and my fiancé visited our first day in town. First of all, you have to pay $18 per adult whether you swim or not. You go on a nice 30 minute walk, but nothing worth paying for. Then, once you finally get to the...More

We gift recommend this waterfall and not because you can swim there. The entire valley is amazing especially the Banyan and Warrior trees. It looks out of this world and is a wonderful valley to walk through which leads you to the main attraction -...More

The walk itself is beautiful but I was expecting the falls to be a little bigger. Lots of beautiful flowers and plants along the walk. Was more expensive to enter than what I expected. Probably wouldn't go back but nice to have been.

A small waterfall but easily accessible for those who aren’t as adventurous. The gardens are a nice walk with the bonus of a hosted waterfall at the end. Nice for families and those who can’t take on an adventurous trail. Water is a little murky...More

The waterfall is nice though, but 18 bucks to much. Also they want another 5 bucks for storing the stuff in lockers at the pool. Dont do this!!

There is an admission charge for tourists and local residents ( local residents ID required). The hike is relatively easy as they are paved pathways. You will require to wear a safety vest if you want to swim in the fall.
