Short hike down a path from the nearby parking (which has a 1.8 m height restriction but there is some road side parking as well) brings you to the largest waterfall in the region. At the base of the fall is a small deep pool for a quick dip. Quick, as even in the height of the summer it is FREEZING!

Relative safe but the steep cliffs surrounding the pool could be a source of falling rock, chances are very very small though

    Fantastic location but even on a warm day it is chilingly cold water and the downdraft of the waterfall is ice cold too. You can shelter to the left of the fall before the pool (depending on water level). Walk towards the pool is easy 1 km gravel downhill path (stick to the path to protect the fragile nature!). Visited by many but just be daring and skinny dip (fantastic feeling!).
