We enjoyed the visit to the waterfall and Seven Coloured Earth. We had arrived on foot and walked first down passed the waterfall and then on to the Seven Coloured Earth. The waterfall was quite impressive and there is a good viewing place to take photos. The Seven Coloured Earth was Ok, not that impressive, but good to see. We had an issue at the entrance to the Seven Coloured Earth part as we had been given the receipt and leaflet about the park but not the actual entry ticket. This caused a bit of stress that we didn't need. There is a reasonable cafe there and a small shop selling gifts including local coffee.

Do not visit on a rainy day. You basically walk a 300-500 meter slippery circle around this piece of ground. The colours also do not show during a shady day. Paying the entrance fee is worth seeing the waterfall. The mud covered slippery stone (footpath) around the coloured ground is impossible to navigate in wet conditions. Take mosquito spray!!!
