The Waterfall Trail is a stunner of a hike and one of the highlights of Nyungwe. It starts from the Gisakura side of the park and takes three to five hours. The trail winds up and down steep hillsides through primeval looking 'Hollywood' style rainforest where the trees are festooned in vines and the air is heavy and damp. The highlight is a remote waterfall where you can take a shallow dip.
