  • This is a wonderful waterfall, with amazing basalt columns and other rick features. It is situated on an F road, so to drive up you need a 4x4, alternatively you can park a few km away just before the F road begin a and walk in. There is a bit if a slope down to the best view but not too steep.
  • Very beautiful place with basalt cliffs and a large waterfall. Also the lava fields around it are quite nice to see. Some call it a hidden beauty, but it really is. It's a little bit remote and from the main road. For the last part a sign shows you need a 4x4, but the road is pretty good in summer (at least when we went). Really a place to visit if you are nearby.
