Our Golden Waterfall Experience
We arrived on the road near the waterfall, Mike from Ownrides dropped us off and he parked the car.
As I have mentioned earlier, this is famous and turned into a tourist spot because the water and the soil around it has a rusty color.
The water doesn’t seen that rusty to me. Maybe because it is flowing rapidly.
The water from this drops to the Yin Yang Sea. (see our experience in the next blog)
We took our pictures and went to our next stop. This is a very easy and quick area to dropped by, so you have to add it in your itinerary.
