Blue Basin

The trek to the basin starts in an unnamed road just before the ground if you are heading towards the Eco Resort.

You can park at the ground or on the side or the road, be careful not to block the road.

It is used daily by the farmers in the area.

The walk to the basin is short, will take approximately fifteen minutes if so much.

You just need to follow the dirt road along the till you meet the river.

Continue on the road along the river as you and you will come up to a garden.

Here these farmers plenty water cress, but cautious not to walk through the garden.

You will have to walk up the drain on the side until meeting the river again.

Follow the trail along the river until it takes you into the water.

By that point you should see the majestic cascading limestone formations.

The water flows over going into a massive basin which is light green to blue in color.

Not sure what the depth of the pool is but it seemed to be very deep.

You could also walk up the side of the fall and go exploring above to find smaller pools to soak in.

This river bares the resemblance to the more popular Turere water steps and Manulot Waterfall in Mature.

  1. obviously like your web site but you have to take a look at
    the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality
    nevertheless I’ll surely come back again.
