3 RIVERS FALLS This incredible waterfall can be reached following a really simple 45 minute walk from 3 Rivers.
The trail is both beautiful and extremely easy, and involves a well made track and a little river walking.
You can bathe under this 100-foot high cold shower and hear the sound of your screams echoing all around.
The water drops close to a massive tree which forms a junction between 3 rivers, completely different from the rivers meeting at 3 Rivers itself !!
THE SPACE MOUNTAIN FALLS
This cascade of five totally different waterfalls, gushing ferociously from great heights, lies hidden deep in the mountains of Dominica, directly behind 3 Rivers.
After a two or three hour hike through the awe-inspiring forest, you arrive at the lowest of the five falls.
To reach the rest you must climb the rocks at the edge of falls.
Not too easy, but well worth the effort. The only way to get the most from these falls is to camp overnight in the Dominica rainforest and return slowly the next afternoon.
Situated within the Newfoundland Estate, an hour river hike away from 3 Rivers, these two sets of stunning little cascades will take your breath away. Easy access, stunning rainforest surroundings and plenty of water to bathe in.

A cool deep pool on the ridge between the two falls, and it is a truly stunning little spot. Not on the Dominica tourist maps.
