This waterfall has been known to locals earlier, but tourists learned about it just a few years ago.
Walk to this fall is both strenuous and beautiful. One should walk through the rainforest, along the mountain stream for several hours. This trail is unmarked and even many locals would get lost here. Walks are made even more complex by landslides and fallen trees left by hurricane Ivan in 2004. Unfortunately, this hurricane destroyed the historical Tufton Hall Estate House – a fine wooden building in colonial style.
Waterfall itself is not too impressive. The stream is divided into two parts and each is cascading down along the rock face.
Grenada is a beautiful, mountainous Caribbean country with interesting natural and man-made landmarks.
Some of the most fascinating and awe-inspiring natural monuments are waterfalls or locations where a river abruptly changes its elevation.
The Caribbean is a unique group of islands. These islands are somewhat similar – tropical islands surrounded by the blue Caribbean sea. At the same time, they are very diverse – from enormous Cuba to minuscule Saba, from dry Bonaire to jungle-covered mountains of Trinidad, and from the flat Bahamas to mountainous Dominica.
