These falls are good and not too touristy but ONLY accessible on foot. It takes 2 hours each way over some quite challenging terrain. Use hiking sandals as you have to cross the river about 30 times. You can swim in the fall and because...More

Very touristic place, even during wet season, but beautiful. It's easily reachable by motorbike and you can swim a little, the water was fine in september.

Takes about 2 hours each way, but well worth it!! The hike is beautiful, you’ll see plenty of wildlife along the way. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet, honestly water shoes would be best as you cross the stream maybe 20 times each way....More

It's a long way to get to the waterfall, so it's better to start early. The hike itself is very nice. There is steep climb just before you reach the waterfall. Haven't seen any spiders or snakes there.

The trek starts right outside of Valhalla, which is a small bar/hammock spot to chill and sleep at. You can Google both Valhalla and the hiking trail, but it is probably easier to find Valhalla and then go from there. Once... More
