A trail leads to the lower waterfall

When you take the trail inside the jungle, you will soon reach the lower waterfall. To reach the upper tiers, you must cross the stream and climb up at the right side of the fall.

Quite powerful

During our visit local fishermen were busy catching fish in the turbulent water. And guides from a nearby eco-resort were preparing an abseiling exercise.
