After enjoying the stunning view from a lookout platform you hike down to the base of the waterfall where you can swim in the awe inspiring natural pool at the base of the waterfall.
After and inspiring and refreshing dip it’s time to hike back out of the gorge and enjoy a leisurely ride back down the mountain. On the way back you will go through a private 400 hectare farm where you can see toucans, oropendolas, (large and strikingly pretty weaver birds with an incredible range of songs,) plus a variety of other flora and fauna.
