Located near the coffee gardens. You can smell the coffee though, even a little. So, even though there are stones everywhere, don’t even worry about it. The stones are pretty small so you can walk on them safely without any trouble whatsoever. This calm waterfall is actually hidden beneath the split of giant rock that covered in moss.

Not giant rock actually, more like the thick soil that formed so many years ago, the soil is so firm and stiff, and also strong. So it will hold the waterfall for the time being. Anyway, you can see more people in there, taking selfies or enjoying water there. You can do that too by the way, if you really want to bath in there, be free to do it. But remember, there are lot of people.
