It was already about 9:30am when we arrived on Irruka Road, but we were the only ones in sight. Once we got down from the car, I immediately felt like I was being swallowed up by the splendour of the forest. It was full of tall, towering trees where you needed to tilt your head as far back as you could to see the top.
We walked through many leafy sections which formed a canopy that looked like it belonged in movies.
The walk was estimated to be 3.2km and would take about 1 to 1.5 hours. I was so confident we were going to do it in much less but I didn't account for the incline all the way to the falls. At about the 500m mark I was already all puffed out, eep! On the plus side, the journey back to the car was nice and easy. We managed to complete the walk in a little over an hour.
I've been enjoying all the walks and hikes that we've been on because not only do they bring me to new places, I also get improve on my landscape photography skills. This time, I learnt that even though I have steady hands, I should have brought a tripod along to fully capture the motion of the water.
Till next time!
