The Secret Waterfall Hike was our most exclusive tour and is amongst the most adventurous hikes you can get out of a single day.
It starts off as a “normal hike” following a trail with short inclines, declines and a few scrambles. The route is about 10 km to the waterfall and back, however, you’ll be required to stretch to get up, over and around the rock formations in the gorge while it becomes more and more beautiful leading up to the waterfall – this is where it starts getting really exciting!
The Waterfall is approximately 40 metres of sheer drop (if not more) and a truly spectacular one indeed. The sun rays never reached this 20 metre square oasis which gives it a really dark mossy green moist look partnered up with the smoothest wet natural looking mountain walls you’ll probably ever see, this of course makes for a fresh Icy Rockpool, as cold as it is. We’ve only seen smiles come from attendees after their swim.
We cannot do it justice by trying to explain and most people don’t even know it exists. You’ll be part of a select group of people in the world that would have experienced this kind of adventure tour. It isn’t however the easiest hike, so be advised that it gets technical at times. Rather enquire if you’re unsure instead of assuming.
