“Waterfall workout ”
Review of Hiji Waterfall

In general this was a beautiful hike...lovely foliage, beautiful butterflies, birds, other wildlife, and a pretty waterfall. However, as others have written it was a steep hike with lots of up and down stairs. The heat and humidity only added to the effort. My son-in-law ended up having to carry our two year old grandson the entire hike which was indeed a challenge. We'd recommend the hike but be prepared...make sure you take water, wear good shoes (it can be slippery) and know that it's not a good walk for little ones.

This was a good walk for an overcast day with the kids. 500¥ per adult and 300¥ per kid. Borrowed a bamboo walking stick for authenticity. Some steep parts but there's no hurry to finish. Plenty of bird watchers along the walk and the suspension bridge is not the swinging type.

the waterfalls hike was okay because of the well prepared trail. they made it very safe and can be done with small kids. the bridge was very sturdy and the path has anti slip or skid planks in most parts. the handrails are every where. the falls was disappointing because it is not tall nor majestic and there was cordon around it because swimming is not allowed. one can hike here on ballet flats or ordinary sandals.

do this if you want good walk or hike... for exercise. the falls itself is just a bonus.

I went there with my daughter (she lives there), we took the trail to the falls. There is alot of steps and bridges and walkways, and it says it is about a mile, but that would be on flatland! There are several stair cases, from 2 steps to 72 steps! I know because I counted them! We really enjoyed the walk, but because it was raining, the steps and walkway bridges were slippery, so walked slow accross those as there are no safety stops if you slip and fall. The woods were beautiful, and the falls was pretty. i would say it is worth the walk, and it is good exercise! If I go back I will walk it again. The one thing I did not like was that they have no safety nets incase someone falls, also the walkways were too slipery, they need sand paint or anti slip surface. It took about an hour to hour aand a half, depends on how much you stop or how fast you walk. Deffinately wear proper shoes, would not want to wear heels. Overall, worth the trip.

It's about 2KM hike to the waterfall. You can either follow the riverbank or the forest trail. The forest trail can be quite challenging for somes as it consists of long staircase and steep gradients. Not a big waterfall.
