    Fabulous place to swim - BALTIC but worth it - it is temperature endurance!!! Well worth a visit if you can stand the cold.

    There is a very strong current - I went as all the ice on the hills was melting and after a 10 minute downpour so the waterfall was much bigger than the pictures I had seen before I went. I strugggled to get across.

    One word... EPIC

    A MUST visit.

    Jumping, Diving and Exploring up top.

    Although the main plunge pool is massively deep the waterfall itself juts out slightly, because of this I would not recommend jumping from the top of the falls because if you fail to clear this ledge its likely to be fatal. However there are still fun and safer jumps from the cliffs to the right and left of the falls.

    The upper section can be accessed from a path that runs up the right of the falls and is great to explore and look around.

    The drop from the top of the falls can and has been fatal so be sensible about the risk. When in spate the currents are also massively powerful.
