Lata Rek is more a cascade than a waterfall. But a very powerful cascade over the full river width of about 100 meter. The impression of the site will depend strongly on the amount of water

The waterflow of the river is very variable. The sandy basin can be used for camping

Very impressive cascades

During our visit there was a lot of water and as a result the cascades were very impressive. It is possible to climb the cascades, but you have to be very careful. When you loose your balance and fall in the turbulent water, you will not survive it.

Probably the cascades will be really powerful in the rainy season.

Even in the quieter spots you better take care

Not a suitable place to bath!

The cascades are a part of a Mini Hydro Power station (now derelict).

The power of water can be very tremendous!

Above the cascades there is a derelict water catchment. All is quiet here
