  • Yes, it will feel like there are a lot of people there, even in late September, but you'll be surprised at how the people barely even show up in your photos, and the waterfall is more than worth a visit. The path to get behind is a bit tricky to traverse--luckily there's a rope to pull yourself up with at a particularly rough spot, but it's also wet and muddy there so you'll get a little dirty.
  • Nice waterfall where you can walk behind the waterfall! Great pictures guaranteed! Make sure to come early before all the touring buses and enjoy this amazing place in all peace. I recommend taking the first parking lot you see when leaving the main road. This parking lot is for free!
