WHAT TO EXPECT?
Cool waterfall you can jump from and great place to hang out.
But we personally prefer the second waterfall a few meters down the river. (There is a rope you can swing from).
All in all both place are really nice. You can have a barbecue and swim in the pool. It really feels you are in the middle of nature (because you are dah) with a large pool of turquoise blue water.
Prefer going on a sunny morning. In the afternoon, almost the whole pool lies in the shadow from the trees surrounding the area.
Also locals like to hang out there and have a barbecue with their entire family, so if you want it to be quiet, prefer going on a weekday.
Don’t forget your drinks and snacks (closest convenience store is 30 min walk + 15 min bus away) and sunscreen + mosquito repellent!
