Nothing to say about the falls there are impressive and one of the biggest one I’ve seen in Southeast Asia. What you really have to know it’s that you can and should go with the motorbike until the fall. The way is steep but if...More

This was a lovely morning venture-the downhill (40 minutes) took longer than the uphill for us! Paved road, winding, good chance to see flowers, trees and nature. Powerful and impressive falls at the base- have a cup of tea or noodles and enjoy the surroundings....More

I liked the surrounding stalls more than the falls itself, as it was a good place to sample local wines and candies. I also enjoyed seeing the different "amusement facilities" surrounding the falls. As far as waterfalls goes it is however not spectacular.
