This is one of the short stream in Needle Hill mountain system. This stream is short with no big swimming pool, yet it is packed with some exitment. The lower stream and the upper stream will demand more climbing skills, while the middle stream is only mediocre. Although there is no sizeable swimming pool, there are a couple of "bathing tub" with clean water. Enjoy your trip.
We have to enter a small village before reaching the stream. This is entrance of the village.
Here we arrived at the entrance of the stream. We bypassed the dam on left. Follow the ribbons.
It is what you have right after the dam.
We are now on the another small dam, we proceed on the left.
A narrow cliff.
It is a man-made "bath-tub" with clean water.
Ronald is scaling up a big rock.
Here we are getting close to the end of the stream. In the upper stream, things become difficult. The most challenging structures are in the upper stream. These are especially demanding in watery seasons. Two guys using different ways to confront the same cascade.
Here is the last challlenge. You can see the dry waterfall blocking your way. To overcome this, we can either climb on the right or left. There are ribbons on both sides. Actually we tried both. The guy in the picture is making attempt on the left. It works but you have to handle a sandy slope on top of a cliff. On the right, the "route" is very bushy and we have to take zigzag route to overcome some rocks. Comparatively, the left route seems a little bit more approachable. Anyway, both ways are not for the fainthearted.
After last climb, we are on the top of the waterfall. You will see two exits. We chose the right one for going to Needle Hill. If everything is right, the main path is only about 100m away.
