As if they are crowning it, the spiky shrubs surround the body of water and the sweet nectar scent of flowers takes over the spirits of those around them. The fringes of the monkey, dropping from a height, smash along the sides of the mountain and give the fall a silver lining.
Frogs hopping across the gushing river, tiny birds joyfully chirping along, and several monkeys playfully swaying around the forest. You will definitely be accompanied all the way home by this soul-swelling magic of seeing this waterfall in all its glory.
