Start walking

After the first impression, it is time to start exploring. First, walk through the primary forest trail, where you will encounter some beautiful trees. And from where you can see the waterfall from different angles. And they all have their beauty. Keep walking until reaching the concrete steps, take a deep breath, and descend. Suppose there are 182 steps made of concrete; after those, you make a left turn. Well, at this point, if you listen carefully, you can hear another waterfall tumbling. However, unfortunately, for safety reasons, unreachable.

Keep following the trail up and down. Look up once and a while to see impressive rock formations. Step by step, this rough diamond reveals its beauty to you.
