When our school arrived we were assigned our guide. Which on the way educated us on a couple trees and animals on the way to the fall. He also gave us the history about the place and a lot of interesting things about the way waterfall. It was a 45-minute hike to the falls. When we got to the falls it was spectacular. The water was pretty cold and refreshing. Most of us got in for a swim. The rocks around the falls were pretty slippery as you would imagine, but you could just wade into the water without climbing on them. Wli falls has changing rooms/urinals and a large shaded pavilion where you can rest at the falls. To become another 45minutes hike out to the parking area. This time around it didn’t seem as long as climbing up. In spite of the long hike, the falls were well worth experiencing. Add it to your bucket list this year!
