The surrounding areas are also popular picnic spots.
Families with young kids can skip the trekking and settle in at the cosy open area near the entrance. Here, the river flows gently, and the grounds are ideal for picnics and camping.

On the way, there are several huts where you can stop to catch your breath and take in the lush surroundings.
The steps lead to a couple more cascades with shallow pools where you can wade in and even slide down some slippery rocks.
