This is a waterfall that requires a fee. Although it is not far from the main road, it is recommended to go to the town in advance to buy a ticket to come, so as not to be unable to enter. After a short hike, I came to the bottom of the waterfall. Standing on the opposite side of the pool to admire the waterfall, the water splashed everywhere, it was quite comfortable. The air in the mountains is better, but because there are more mosquitoes, it is not recommended to stay longer. The pool is surrounded by railings. It is not recommended to enter or swim. In addition to safety, it is important to protect the local ecological environment.
The waterfall is in the mountains and forests of the northern part of the island, some distance from Papeete town. It is recommended to charter a car or drive there after buying tickets in the town. The car can be parked on the main road and then hiked to see the waterfall. It's about 5-10 minutes on foot. The road is not very easy to walk, but it is worth your visit. The waterfall is not big, it can't compare with some domestic ones, but the air here is very good, it is worth coming to appreciate it.
The waterfall is more than 300 meters high, pouring down from above, and it is quite spectacular in the rainy season. The tour guide said that when it rains, there is little water, not so much, and the water is very sparse. After the chartered car came here, the car stopped on the main road and walked to the waterfall. The road is not easy to walk, but the distance is still relatively short. Looking up under the waterfall is still pretty beautiful. The mountains are cooler, but there are also more mosquitoes. Remember to bring some mosquito repellent or wind oil, it is easy to be bitten here.
When I went to Tahiti during the rainy season, I saw a waterfall with a relatively large amount of water and very beautiful. But the road to the waterfall is not easy to walk, so I asked a local guide to take us there. There are two points to note, do not wear sandals, it is recommended to wear hiking shoes, the road will be slippery; and bring a little insect repellent, there are many mosquitoes in the mountains.
Although it's just a waterfall, it requires tickets. Don't go there without doing your homework. In order to protect the original ecology of the valley here, the local government limits the number of tourists visiting each day. Therefore, to visit the waterfall, you must first go to the Papeete town government to buy tickets. Tickets cost $7 per person.
