Kemonchak Falls is a series of 4 low-flow cascade waterfalls. Surprisingly, at every waterfall level there is a pool. While the pools are small in size, it is deep enough for soaking to enjoy the gentle calming waters. At the last fall, the pool gets deep and narrow with a boulder wedged in the middle. There is no clear trail, beginners are NOT advised to attempt this without guidance.
