A well maintained footpath

Most waterfalls are approached from below, but for this one you start upstream in the village. The first cataract is nice but the view is spoiled a bit by the constructions of the water treatment plant

Approaching the main fall

The main fall is quite impressive. It is located in a deep ravine. In the past it was not so easy to view the fall because of the many trees, but they have been cleared now.

In the rainy season this fall must be even more powerful

After the fall the path keeps going down steeply. There might be more falls or cascades, but they will not be easy to reach, because the ravine is very steep.

Warning: the water is quite polluted, better not swim here!

I recently visited this waterfall but could only find the waterworks. There are no signs like the one you show above (it is there but barely readable). We did not see any other signs to this fall.

The falls are nice to look at for only a few minutes. No place to swim or enjoy being near the falls. But take time to walk the trail down to the road and then bus back up to town. A good refreshing hike.

Good place to go for a walk in the woods. Easy access. Good for children. But swimming is definitely out. The water flows down from the farm-lands above, fully contaminated especially with pesticide.

It is called a water fall but please note that it smells like a drain. Why? Because it is drain water flowing down the rocks. Highly recommended to skip this one.
