Welcome To Argyle waterfall
The stuff that
dreams are made of.
to be one of the most pristine
and beautiful waterfalls in this corner of the universe, these falls
flow with a serene power – a power that soothes the world-weary spirit
and caresses the body with the hands of a gentle
a scenic 25 kilometre drive from Scarborough, the
capital of Tobago. The falls are on the Argyle River, just west of
Roxborough Village. The trail begins 300 metres from the Windward Main
Road, a short one minute drive or six minute walk. The river and falls
are a part of the Main Ridge reserve, the oldest protected rainforest
reserve in teh western hemisphere.
The trail abounds with a breathtaking variety of butterflies, spiders, lizards and snakes. The sound of exotic birds such as cocricos and parrots create a cacophonic orchestra of chirps as if to serenade the unspoilt beauty of this eden. In a small marsh, miniature caimans play hide and seek between the floating water lilies. The vegetation reflects an incredible diversity and the land is a loosely knit tapestry of trees including the poui, mango, cocoa, wild pines, bois cano, silk cotton, cedar and pawpaw among others. Adding to the richness and colour are bursts of wild blossoms such as orchids, mimosa and heliconia.
