In winter, conditions can be quite dangerous because of snow and ice. Hence the path has been closed and a sign in four languages indicates that the path is closed. The agency strongly requests that tourists heed this warning and thereby reduce the danger of accidents. The waterfall, which is beautiful in winter, can be seen quite well from a distance. Especially if you are alive.
