Tamarind Falls Hiking Trip - Half Day
This half day Hike trip to Tamarind Falls is moderate, fun and accessible to all. It starts with a path which allows you to come down in the gorge. Sometimes the walk will be in the forest, or in an open area on the basalt rock nearby. You will be stunned by the view from the waterfall of 40 meters.
Feel free to have a swim in the water or enjoy a natural massage standing under the cascade. The hike continues by passing a 12metres waterfall. A 20meters waterfall will still be circumvented to access a natural pond. There, you can take a refreshing swim in the cool, clear water. The Hike ends above the big 55meters waterfall with its marvelous view, over the green canyon. Looking back to the first waterfall, you will get a better idea of how high these magnificent waterfalls really are.
The more daring ones can lie on the stomach just near the waterfall edge and look down 55 meters for a real thrill.
About twenty minutes of ascent will allow you to join our point of departure.
