Gorgeous spot but shame about the rubbish

This is such a gem of a spot so close to the city. Great place to relax and try and enjoy the cooling waters and the scenery - Beware of the monkeys in the area which can turn... read more

Some genius decided to build a highway not far from this place.So its not worth the effort.It was once a ok place to enjoy the"Jungle" with a nice river running thru it wont be long before it will be a thing of the past.

As you can see from my previous reviews , there are many great features here that are taken for granted.Now you can bring your badminton racquets and play a game of Badminton. After that game you anyone can wash off the sweat from the body.On another day we played frisbee.A lot of people are playing games on the banks of... More

Water is cold even at 10:30am. Not many stall around. Bring your own food and beware of monkey. They can be devilish once they saw... More

This is such a gem of a spot so close to the city. Great place to relax and try and enjoy the cooling waters and the scenery - Beware of the monkeys in the area which can turn aggressive if provoked. My only criticism is that people just don't respect the areas of natural beauty they have -the amount of... More

I went here to get away from the city and see what wildlife I could find. The site is a road bordered by the forest with a river running alongside the road. I got a cab right to the end and took a walk back. Unfortunately I went there during a public holiday near the middle of the day so... More
