This place would be a paradise if there wouldn't be so many sandflies! We were not able to take off our clothes because we got attacked by sandflies. Maybe it's better on a sunny day. The water is really hot and the pools are fantastic though! It took us 20 minutes until we reached the pools. Take flip flops because you need to cross the river.



Great pools! So hot! The trail is right after stream crossing, look for aarge flat rock in the grass



Still here! To find: walk main trail, cross river when you reach (after about 10-15mins), take quick right when you see blue cups- into the bush, follow hidden bush trail. You will come out into new river valley, pools are right below you!
