The Lower path (1,200-meter-walk) reveals great views of the majority of the rapids and falls from a front and lower point of view. Its duration is 2 hours and is considered difficult due to the number of steps along the way. The Higher path (1,300-meter-walk) takes 1 hour and is less effort demanding but offers breathtaking sceneries from a cliff-point outlook.
