This is the most unique waterfalls that i have visited. The waterfalls meaning the water from the falls is very hot. See pictures, we are always standing in the rocks protruding because the water in the pond is hot. The falls can be reached via Maco town proper or Mawab. We took the Mawab road, leading to Massara.
