From the pier (after the boat is moored), the first level waterfall can be seen and heard with the roar of the water flowing from the mouth of the river. If you want to go to the next level (up to the fourth level) you have to go down steep cliffs through concrete stairs between trees that are still beautiful.

Meanwhile, to get to the seventh level from the fourth level, one has to go through more difficult terrain even by hanging between tree roots, this is quite energy-consuming. The distance between these waterfalls ranges from 50-100 meters. On the sixth level, you will find a waterfall with a height of more than 30 m. What’s really amazing, in this waterfall pool is that two layers of rainbows are drawn, the result of the refraction of sunlight from the splash of the waterfall which produces strong wind gusts. And if you get to the last level (seventh) from above, if you look down, in this seventh waterfall pool you will see a rainbow that stretches in a circular shape.
