Driving up the Valencia-Matura Road from the Valencia Junction, just over a mile of driving from the junction, there is a narrow road on the left, this is “Cumaca Road”; take this road and drive until you reach the first small bridge. This is where we park, for this river is the “Turure River”. Trekking through very friendly terrain, the forest is quite pleasant with regards to having quite a lot of birds of different species fluttering about. We cross the Turure River on a couple of occasions to keep on track, no getting away from getting you feet wet.
After trekking for about 35 minutes, depending on the season (wet or dry), we will be coming to the first small waterfall. If lucky, in the wet season, this falls is quite invigorating, and a bath here is a must. Unfortunately, there is no pool to plunge in. Lots of limestone at this point hereby making walking on these rocks quite easy. If the season is a dry one, this waterfall is virtually non-existent. We continue upstream for 3 minutes and the second waterfall which is a bit larger than the first, but there is a nice small pool to wade in. At this point, the combination of the pool and the forest makes the perfect combination when you look around you closely.
As we trek further on for another 2 minutes, we will come up to the third and most spectacular waterfall. This falls is one of a kind, as it is not the traditional type of waterfall; you will see a huge rock about 50 feet in width by 20 feet in height and water is cascading along this rock giving a curtain type of effect. A lovely natural pool is also provided for your enjoyment. A great area for either bathing, reading or even a little nap.
