We only had to hike half a kilometer in before we got to the gorgeous waterfall where you can swim. The staff were super friendly and helpful and the reserve is beautiful. Definitely worth the hike up the hill from town!

Really nice area to explore. We didn't go with a guide so we didn't see a lot of wildlife, but the waterfalls were beautiful. We also went swimming in one of the rivers which was really fun.

Cloudbridge is one of our favorite places in the World. It demonstrates so well how ex-farmland can be converted back into vibrant rainforest within a relatively short period of time, how that re-wilded land integrates seemlessly with the surrounding primary forests, and how it all...More
