serves as a perfect place for an adrenaline-pumping canyon tour. Adventure seekers come here
to abseil seven sets of different waterfalls, and climb and jump down the rapids. Tourists also
have the option to rent a bamboo ladder to use for some difficult parts of the falls.
The pinnacle of the canyoning activity is descending a 30-meter high waterfall with an overhang.
By the foot of the falls, adventurers can get an intense yet relaxing water massage. Local
officials only allow trekking to the final and highest point of the falls when the weather is clear.
