Beautiful if a little tricky to navigate in places.

Great walk, but would not rate it easy, medium at least because of small muddy paths along the steep banks of the river. On a hot day take your swimming gear for a dip under the waterfalls. Do not do it on flip flops like somebody we met tried! If you go clockwise stick to the river path...
