Is the walk to Dtaat Mook Waterfall an easy or difficult walk? How long is it?
We are assessing if this is suitable for bringing along a 3.5 year old with us.
You can hike to Dtaat Mook Waterfall without a guide, however it would be difficult for a 3.5 year old. The trail isn’t marked and there are many branching trails to get lost if you don’t know where you are going. The hike is about 3kms long.
