This waterfall is the largest in Europe and very impressive. This waterfall is formed by the melting of the Vinnu glacier, the water rushes down the top of a rocky mountain through a crevice. Due to the great height of the rocky mountain and the fact that it is made up of several levels, when the water reaches the second level, it causes a spectacular veil, reaching a width of more than 152 metres.

The waterfall reaches a height of almost 950 metres, with an important difference from other waterfalls in that it has a very low flow rate, which can even disappear in the dry season. The water is very safe and pure to enjoy before the fall. The great height of the waterfall in the rainy season is visible from the main road of the Royal Natal National Park.
