Hike to Turure Cascades

December 2 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Hikers, join us on Sunday 2nd December, 2018 as we venture to Turure Cascades.
Within the Cumaca forest lies three beautiful limestone waterfalls. Water cascade down the limestone faces creating a spectacular view and crystal pools form below to soak in.
Hikers will walk and at times rock climb along the Turure river to find these hidden cascades. Our final stop at the third waterfall has several pools as the limestone forms a firm base for the river as it flows downstream. Here the pools are of varying depth with some being very shallow.
The hike to the waterfalls takes approximately 35 to 45 minutes, going through pristine tropical rain forest. As you move along the forest trail, the calls of the bell bird can be heard echoing among the trees. There are several river crossings and hiking in the water along this relatively easy hike and the few uphill portions are not difficult.
