Which season does the waterfall have water?

What is the most beautiful season of Pongour waterfall tourist area? and when does the Pongour waterfall have water? These are two of the most common questions of visitors. So for me, after years of organizing tour and traveling to this place. Pongour waterfall has water all year round. It’s just about the amount of water. But in our opinion you should not travel here in the rainy season. Because this season the water flow is really big and cloudy, the cliffs are very slippery. So in this season, the scenery is usually not as beautiful as other seasons. And you don’t have to worry about the falls will run out of water guys!
