Surrounded by the forest until you reach the pool, following the trail of 1,400 meters and over the wooden bridge. When we visited we took the longer route to experience some of the nature reserve before reaching the pool and to also filter some of the other tourists away so it wasn’t as busy when we got to the pool.
