  • I get to semonkong front and side street and go about 7 km gravel road in front of the waterfall is superb. Parking can be reached in 2 WD. 300 m walk from the parking lot and go up and down two vantage points. From the direction of the light is beautiful in the morning.

  • With a decline of about 200 meters, this is one of the highest waterfalls in the world. The waterfall is located in an impressive landscape. There is also there (for those who dare) a possibility near the waterfall abseiling. Advice take a guide so you get the local population also a modest source of income. And you hear and see a lot more of the local customs.

  • Water itself is charming, though, tend to be so cool! Large scale! A place to make me feel the greatness of nature. Looking elsewhere, liked to walk around this waterfall, also walking, try changing the angle, can be enjoyed while hiking.
