Steps leading to Nungnung Waterfall
From the parking area, one needs to climb down 509 steep steps to reach at the foot of the waterfall, which can be challenging for some.
The difficulty to reach the falls is probably one of the reasons why this well known waterfall is not visited by too many tourists. One needs to carefully walk down the steps and avoid rush since the step can be slippery at some places.

Things to Keep in Mind
- There are no washrooms, lockers or changing rooms at the base of the waterfall. So be sure to keep your belongings safe and dry.
- There is a washroom near the car parking area where you can change clothes.
- Taking good pictures from your camera can be a herculean task. The drizzle from the waterfall will keep your camera and lenses wet and you will struggle to get a perfect click. It’s recommended to carry a water resistant camera.
- Wear comfortable shoes or sandals that have a nice sole grip and avoid flip-flops while climbing down the steep steps.
- Don’t get too close to the waterfall since the current is very strong.
- Before heading back, have some coconut water and light snacks available at a small shop near the car parking area.
Enjoy the sights and sound of the waterfall and feel the magic of mother nature.
