A waterfall in distress

left click for larger picture

There is still a signboard

Thirty years ago this was a serene place with a beautiful river with waterfalls and flowing into a patch of wetlands.
Now resorts and hotels are filling up the beaches. Currently, a new road is under construction, threatening the very existence of the waterfall.
Probably it will have disappeared in a couple of years....

Can there still be a waterfall in this mess?

It must have been a nice place.

That there still is a waterfall, comes as a pleasant surprise. The volume of water is not large and depends on the season. But the water is clear and cooling.
The beautiful colours of the rocks enhance the peaceful atmosphere of the place.

Have visited the place on 05/12/09. The cleared forest for development is now replaced by secondary forests, meaning its slowly recovering. Hopefully there are efforts to restore this waterfall to its former glory..
