The falls is made of a male and female waterfall which come from two emerging rivers .The larger one is mythically believed to be the male and the smaller one, the female . According to the indigenes, when the two merge, a rainbow is formed . It is usually said that these rivers are mating when this happens.

Within the vicinity of the falls are summer huts and visitor facilities that tourists and other fun loving and adventurous travellers can rest after the tour.
