This is truly beautiful setting.  The water is cool, refreshing, and crystal clear.  Vines hang and natural bamboo stand throughout the falls.  You will see species of plants here that you wont see anywhere else in the world.

The scenic hike and swim up the river is sheer beauty.

If you go beneath the waterfalls you will see hidden holes that are naturally carved out by the water. You’ll even find a secret cave behind one of the falls that you can step in, then climb out just above the cascade.

Reach Falls is somewhat remote so not many tourists know about it. Dont be surprised if you have the place all to yourself when you go.
