This is a very long hike. It is 9 1/2 miles roundtrip. Don't let the internet fool you saying that it is 4 hours. It took me five and I am a very fast walker in very good condition. You hike variously on the riverbanks and in the river itself. When you think you couldn't possibly be getting anywhere, you... More

We got advice from the local information centre in Honiare, they gave us three different guides, one of whom was Stephen from the Eco Lodge near the waterfalls. He collected us from our hotel and drove us to his lodge, two charming local ladies then guided my wife and I down the slippery, sloping, muddy path to the river bed.... More

Well was looking forward to the 4 hour flat easy round trip , but didn't do my homework and got waylaid by a "guide" on the way to Tenaru who said he would take us to the waterfall . We drove for about an hour uphill on an atrocious road being logged . We arrived at this newly built echo... More

Was lovely day outside of Honiara, in my opinion worth the walk. We got the phone number for the Chief of the village to have a guide take us to the waterfall and they watched our cars. We chose to walk along the riverbed which is slighly longer with river crossings but very beautiful walk through Solomon Islands bush.

This is a beautiful place to visit if you are staying in or around Honiara. You can enquire at the visitors bureau in town and join an organised group or just hire a driver and a taxi to Tenaru. Be prepared to pay for kastom fee and a guide when you arrive. Our guide did the trek with a couple... More

Be prepared for a one hour each way walk that can at times be testing. The scenery is great, the falls themselves really good. What is the problem is the haggling over the custom fee when you arrive (whites are double that of locals) and your guide will be intoxicated on solbrew and betel nut before you start.

An easy walk. Allow minimum 6 hours all up. Allow 2 hours each way walking, prepare for substantial wading. Take bathers and a picnic. Take high clearance 4WD, preferably two in convoy carrying tow rope. Take guides, even if you know the way, if they don't like the weather, listen to them. Do not go if there is surface water...

The calming Breeze of the Surrounding with its Natural Beauty has caresing Joy as I felt the cleanliness of The Terrestrial Environment. Since I Just can't believe and enjoyed the Beauty of The Surroundings, The Fauna Presence in the Zone here also enjoyed a bigger deal too.

This place is way out of town and a long trek in the bush to get there but once there it's worth it. Beautiful and natural.
