  • Place is abandoned and has fallen into disrepair. I was there in the dry season so I can't say much about the waterfalls but the jungle trail was quite nice. If you like being alone in the jungle and having to maneuver around a number of fallen trees, broken down bridges etc. doesn't scare you, then this place is for you. Would have given 3.5 rating but 4 seemed too much.
  • This place is totally deserted, nobody maintains it anymore. The jungle trail trek was exciting though
