Incredible is the only way to describe this park. The paths and bridges allow you to get up close to a unique and spectacular cascade.

Amazing waterfall. A bit of a hike but totally worth it. We also ate at the restaurant. Eat before going to the waterfall because you will get soaked!

Great views of nature and of the river and waterfalls. Be prepare to walk up and down stairs, cross harrowing bridges over deep gorges, and to get wet. Definitely worth the 2.00 entrance fee.
