Victoria Falls

Located outside the city from whence it gets its name, Victoria Falls drops nearly straight down from the cliff above. The hike to it is tough, as you must pass through the forests and mountains that mark that area of the island.

As you leave the forest and approach the waterfall you come face to face with a cliff that juts proudly up, ferns and other greens growing along its walls. From the top, the water of Victoria Falls plunges down, much of it misting on impact. This rocky clearing is a sudden, but welcomed reward for anyone who successfully navigates through mountains.
