I had read a novel by Simone Schwarz-Bart, and after an hour long hike, lots of mud, a rappel, with good ropes, I arrived and felt the loving and healing presence that she wrote about. These three were by far the most rewarding on the...More
Nice hiking trip with family of five to the Carpet Falls. Went to both falls, and we chilled in the river at the fall. Great view which we filmed using a drone. Total 3 hours including long break at the falls. The first fall (20...More
The Carbet falls refer to actually 3 waterfalls so do some check on which one you want to visit as they require different levels of effort.

The third fall is...More

The back and forth trip with some stops and time to...More
