This is a ways up the mountain but the scenery at the top is breath taking and they have dammed up the bottom so you can swim in the natural fresh water. Totally recharges your battery.

Nice adventure to get to the waterfalls and a great place to take pictures. Wear good foot ware so you don't slip. The guide was helpful and full of knowledge.
