Approach: walk across the dam and enter into the tunnel. Once on the outside, on the left, take the path heading for Combra. The beginning of the descent is marked by the first little wooden bridge crossing the bed.

Coming back: after the last jump leave the bed on the left bank and in a few minutes rise up to the approach path.
