The stage is set now, all that is left is to reach our destination. But this time around we have two destinations and that is to reach the top as well as the bottom of the waterfall, and if you are wondering, “Yes” you can do that. The irony of the matter is that to reach even the top of the water you’d have to go down. The passage is more or less there but it isn’t as visible as you’d think, so much so that you’d think you are lost but not to worry if you are following the footsteps, you are in the correct path. After maybe going down for 15 minutes you’d reach a plain. A plain of rock, the top of the waterfall is entirely made out of a layer of (seeming granite) rock which was subjected to hundreds if not thousands of years of weathering and erosion. In the top, there was a relatively small but extremely violent waterway. The combination of these two is quite undoubtedly magnificent.
One you go on top you can get awfully close to the fall as the giant rock has some parts that emerges out of the steep fall of the waterfall, which gives you the top row seat to view the waterfall from the top. This is an experience that can not be said however should be experienced. The violence of the water hitting the rocks creates a sound that echos through the wilderness , this is a place that is beautiful yet dangerous but may be even more dangerous and even more beautiful place which is the bottom of the fall.
It is not that hard to get to the bottom, firstly though you’d have to go back the way you came in and stop at the main junction which is about 20 to 30 meters away from the passage you just came(which you probably passed to get there). And from there it is simple, just follow the staircase they have built. Unlike the path of Aberdeen falls or even the one to the top of the Laxapana fall. This path is a well built, easy to navigate cement staircase. This path will also lead downwards for about 300m until you finally reach bottom.
The walk is about 30 minutes but you’d get to know when you reach the destination pretty quickly by the large sound the waterfall makes that makes you think whether it exerts enough pressure to cut diamond. As mentioned previously this waterfall is a lot more violent compared to the Aberdeen although they are both of the same sizes. This is also the reason why it makes it impossible to take a dip in near the fall. However, nature strikes one of its beauties again has places huge rocks to slow down the flow of water. This is again similar to the Aberdeen but on a different scale, the stones themselves are much bigger and soaks in the pressure of the waterfall, this in return has created few natural ponds of sorts in some of the gaps left by the rocks, these, of course, are safe to take a dip in as long as you take precaution due to the fact that they are considerably deep and rocky or else you could lie down there and enjoy the view and pleasant feeling of water sprinkling on your body or both which is exactly what we did. This made us ready to go to the next destination and quite honestly the highlight of the whole tour “The Hideout”.
