In all, there are six waterfalls to get down. The highest jump is about seven meters. As there is no way for you to walk around each waterfall, you will need to abseil or jump down each waterfall. At the end of the tour there is an approximately one hour walk out of the canyon. The first twenty minutes of this is up a steep hill in a wetsuit to get back to where dry clothes have been left (definitely the hardest part of the day physically).
