OK if you are there on a sunny hot day - otherwise too pricy and many steps

It's nice and you'll get the "over the rainbow" feeling, but it's 40 Euro for a family! There are lots of steps and no real "round-trip" so you have to go the same way back to... read more

It's hard to find the top view even with Waze. No appropriate signs. When they finally arrive, they demand a lot of money from him to enter the observation point and see the waterfall. Not worth the effort! It is possible on the main road at the bottom of the waterfall to look for parking and watch the waterfall from... More

Beautiful falls with a great setting and a spectacular drop even if it's man made or mostly man made/modified. Go when they're turned on and off for diversion to the hydro electric plant.. check timings.

We've seen some spectacular natural falls before, but these did not disappoint. Parking and access were easier than anticipated, even at high season. At the bottom of the falls, the spray was light and refreshing. There are several paths around the lower falls with different perspectives and increasing amounts of spray, including some incredible misty woodland. Then there is quite... More

It's like a Disneyland attraction, one that is controlled by humans—turn it ON, turn it OFF. We looked from a distance and never got wet. Others raved, but we found it quite ordinary. It does flow quite strongly when it get going.

You can see the waterfalls will "full speed" twice a day - plus its length depends on the season, month and on the day. On working days this period is shorter, longest during festivals. It is better to visit during afternoon if you want sun to shine on the falls to have nice pictures.

I've seen waterfalls before but because this is one that they turn off and on, I was very curious abut how the water interacted with the surrounding environment, how it ran over the lush plants etc. If I'd planned in advance I would have known to take a waterproof of some sort - we did get soaked! It's like rain... More

Go to the website to check the opening times for the location and the times when they open the sluices to let the water from the lake above cascade dramatically down the falls. I managed to keep our party of 6 'in the dark' about where I was taking them so they hardly noticed the small trickle of water from... More

I enjoyed visiting this giant waterfall; we saw it in action. We bought cheap ponchos, but didn't in the end need them, if you don't mind a bit of spray here and there. Only the balcony at the end of the tunnel is really wet. I didn't really understand why the water would prefer to fall off this ledge, and... More

The reason I went to Italy, Umbria and Terni. So, so worthwhile, a delight, I could live there permanently; so mesmerising and beautiful; the power of the waters, the beauty of the rainbows. Go and see. It is a monument to natural beauty AND to human's ability to harness nature, even in 3rd C Roman Empire. Magnificent. Spend at least... More
