... post descent we found the drop we had just experienced to be quite impressive. The remainder of our journey was much more calm and we had time to look at caves peeking out from the edges of the water.

We came out to a lovely little waterfall and river in the valley. We enjoyed the scenery and then headed on up to the other waterfall. We had to turn off the main road (which in itself is an exaggeration there was not much 'main' about it) and pulled onto a dirt/gravel track. I travelled the 4km at almost snails pace very aware of the ...
