This falls is also popularly known as the "Seven Sister Falls" because of the way is divides itself into seven smaller waterfalls as it runs down the treacherous limestone cliffs.

On a bright and sunny day, the waterfalls is a treat to the eye as it reflects the sun's rays and gives out vibrant colours in all directions. Nevertheless, even on a cloudy day, you can actually see small patches of cloud move below your feet and around the waterfalls, which in itself is another wonder.
