  • Beautiful falls when there's water flowing.. Isolated in the middle of a forest.. But easily accessible in from the town - hardly 2 kms.. Clean, fresh and chill water flowing almost year round.. A must visit..

  • No crowd at all. Small but beautiful waterfall. Completely safe. Beautiful and tall eucalyptus and pine trees all around. There's a small pathway besides it which leads to the top of waterfall but it's really really really dangerous. Better avoid it.
