Hi, Im interested to go to the famous lord of the rings water fall.. the one where there are multiple waterfalls on rock cliffs (sorry I don't know the name). I understand this can be reached on the earnslaw hike. Question is, if I don't want to hike the entire 5 hours, is there a short cut to get there? I know you can take a helicopter, but I can't afford that.
I understand the hike is about 6 hrs 1 way, so I was wondering if I started from the other direction would it be faster?
