This is a very beautiful waterfall which drops into a pool, where you in summer can sail around in small rubber boats. I was there in winter, but in summer it must be soo nice to be cooled down by the water spray.

Fun, water, cooling - this is both a top spot for locals and tourists alike as well as being set in a stunning setting, it is extremely fun place. Lively entertainment, freezing mountain streams, and jolly company
