Experience you shouldn’t miss!

The journey behind the falls was such a fascinating experience! While you are walking through the underground tunnel, you can read some interesting facts and enjoy the sound of the falls above you. At the half of the tunnel, you can look out directly at the back of the falls, and believe me, the view is magical! Although, be prepared to get wet! So, the capes you will get are really necessary, and taking some water shoes could also be useful. This journey was definitely worth it, and I highly recommend it to everyone!
