Successive to the main river flow from it’s top, the first of the waterfall falls suddenly 90 meters through a steep rock face to join main pool below. The firs waterfall is the second highest of the three waterfalls that compose Sipi Falls and consigns an explosive splash.

In the middle of this steep rock face is a trail that stretches behind the waterfall. This cliff might look frightening from down but upon getting on top of it, you realize it is safe.
