Not very interactive- great falls but you are observing from quite a distance away so don’t get any sense of power or sound of the falls. Quite disappointing.

Not that exciting and a fair distance from where you can take photos. Grounds are kept very nice. We went on a public holiday so couldn't stay long

Worth stopping in for a look but the water fall is some way off. It only cost a couple of Tala each to visit so you are helping a local family.

This waterfall is very tall one but I watched it from the distance! It would have been better if there were much closer viewing deck.
