  • We walked all the way from the information point near Hua Hum until the waterfall. It's a small walk in the woods, with a stop in a small shore with a beautiful sight of the Nuntuhe lake . The path signaling isn't great, but as long as you are aware of where are you going, it's hard to get lost. It's a beautiful walk with a slightly different vegetation from the rest of the lakes in the nearby. Be prepared, tho... It has some pretty agressive uphills. Nothing difficult, but it is tiresome if you are not in great shape. Once in the waterfall parking the path it's super easy to follow, and it has stopping points for resting and additional information. The waterfall itself is a show on it's own -- breathtaking.
  • Nice waterfall, difficult (walking) access.
