The garden is created by amateurs along the stream path to the waterfall. Plants are planted neatly and beautifully. Lots of stunning scenery. There are several viewing points and pergola for rest. And the waterfall itself is good.
La caminata un poco larga pero valió la pena! Me sentí en contacto con la naturaleza y tuve la oportunidad de bañarme un rato. more »The walk a little long but it was worth it! I felt in touch with nature and had the opportunity to bathe for a while.
This is a beautiful walk along the railway lines from Aguas Calientes. The waterfall is amazing. It is peaceful and absolutely beautiful with a display of all the indigenous plants along the walk towards the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop just before you enter the reserve.
This was a great walk from Aguas Calientes along the railroad track. I love walking along tracks in the rainforest, there is just something about it. Walking by the towering cliff faces and looking out into the tops of trees to watch the small songbirds and hummingbirds. Got to photograph quite a few birds, and saw some interesting mushrooms.
