Golden Stream Waterfalls

This small natural waterfall is part of the history of the village it gets its name from, Golden Stream. Even today, villagers still use the waterfall to get water, wash clothes, and bathe in. Today they also use it to make money, by offering visitors a guide to get to it.

These small waterfalls are more well known for the large pools they flow into. The pools are large and deep, and are perfect for swimming, as long as you do not mind that the water is brown like the dirt along the banks. It is not far from the village of Golden Stream, so it is a perfect place to see the life of the locals, as you may be swimming along side them.
