Skill level (challenging): The hike to the waterfall takes on average 1.5 hours each way, it is possible to do for most people in good physical conditions. However, this is not a tour for everyone. You will walk and hike in a narrow dirt trail surrounded by lush vegetation, with some very steep and technical parts, mud, rocks, and slippery areas. A unique and wonderful experience, but definitely not for the faint of heart.
