The best view of these spectacular waterfalls is from the car park, from where you can view the main falls, at the top, and the various cascades below them. If you are fit and sure of foot, you can climb alongside the stream to stand...More

These beautiful waterfalls are apparently 99 metres high; at the top they are 30 metres wide which extends to 60 metres at the bottom. We were transfixed watching the vast amount of water as it tumbled to the ground. The walk up from the car...More

I definitely wouldn't take a Taxi. A rental car would probably be the best. I have no idea if there are any tours going there. You might be able to just hire a local private guide.
