This waterfall has a nice pool, but the slopes are too steep. Fences have been erected to avoid accidents

The upper falls also have very large and nice pools

After the end of the cemented walkway, a clear trail continues to the upper falls

Very beautiful series of cascades and waterfalls, with clear water and good swimming holes. Sadly, however,there is so much rubbish around the place. It really spoils the atmosphere. Why do people go to such a beautiful place and then leave their rubbish around? In addition to this, the area does not seem to be maintained any more - on the upper tracks trees have fallen across the path and there are broken railings and pondoks. And of course rubbish bins that have not been emptied for some time.

we were there Chinese New Year 2008, sadly there was more trash than people. It is a great place to take the family, but just not well looked after.
