Soltoun Falls

Soltoun Falls in a collection of waterfalls that empty into a large pool that guests can swim in. Being located close to several villages, it is a family tourist spot, though not often crowded.

Soltoun Falls is made up of three waterfall systems that all empty into the same pool. The surroundings are all green, with vines and leaves growing completely up the cliff the water falls down from. The waterfalls are small enough that while swimming, visitors can go directly under the falls without getting hurt.
