  1. Hi.
    I went to this waterfall in September 2013. Followed your driving directions. They were very good except for one thing. I was looking for the falls as your directions indicated and I missed it. After a couple of kilometers past an inconsequential bridge, I turned around and at that bridge the falls were now on my left. If you follow the directions look to the right not the left as stated. Nice falls though. Maybe correct the posting if you can.
