If you have children with you, it it better to leave your luggage in the car, and just bring it as necessary (one small bag). Why?

There are hundred of stairs that will guide you to the bottom of the hill, to meet with the waterfall. Although the tracks are not difficult, but once again; there are hundreds of stairs!

To go down and up again when comeback could be stressing for a child. So maybe you need to pickaback them..
