Waterfall & Rainforest Hiking Adventure

Why We Love It -  Our most popular hike, this 2.5 mile expert guided tour takes you to several waterfalls in bamboo, tropical rainforests, and fresh water streams. You can even jump off the rock cliffs into the big, clear, natural swimming pools!

An exciting waterfall playground in a unique and exclusive valley

Follow two streams into this gorgeous valley where you will find waterfalls cascading into clean, clear pools. Take a dip and let the flowing water refresh you. If you're game, climb the basalt alongside the falls for an exhilarating 15 foot leap into the pools!

Frequently Asked Questions

Need a bathroom? Porta potties or toilets are near most trailheads. After that, search for privacy foliage. 

Should we use our own backpacks? We prefer you use ours, then you don't accidentally walk off with our gear, and you don't get your pack dirty. 

What are these ninja water shoes? Japanese tabis (fishermen shoes). The felt sole clings to wet, mossy rocks better than any other shoe. They can be slippery in mud, however. Best to wear them in the water, not on the hike. 

Bugs love you? Got a bite? Ask your guide for AfterBite -- pharmaceutical ammonia that neutralizes the toxin. Takes away the itch. Also very good for bee, spider, scorpion, centipede and hornet stings. 

What are flash floods? Sudden, very rapid flooding in streams, due to heavy rainfall. Rare, but get out of the water if your guide blows a whistle. You need to react very quickly and head for high ground. Listen to your guide. 

Do you have medical issues? (back, knees, heart, diabetes, pregnancy) Write these down below or tell your guide. 

Is tipping the guide common? Yes, this is a service industry. If you're happy with your guide, a 10-15% tip is the best way to show appreciation.
