Matsirga Waterfall, popularly called ‘river wonderful’, is blissful, breathtaking and awe-rendering. It takes its source from springs on Kagoro Hills.

The fall cascades down from a height of about 30 metres, with a roaring thud as it hits the ground.

Often, cold vapour can be seen coming out of the mouth of the cave while a rainbow has been occasionally spotted hovering above the water.
