The second stage of the waterfall lies 150 meters from the first stage. During the dry season it has a 23m diameter and a 15-20m height, and during the rainy season has a 20m diameter and 18-25m height.
At the third stage, the waterfall is more powerful than at the second stage, but it cannot be reached by man due to geographical obstructions.
Failed Eco-Tourism Development
The Sar Lar Investment company had spent US$2 million of the total projected US$6 million project budget to clear forest and construct a road to develop the Bou Sra Waterfall Eco Resort, but then pulled out of the project because of "capital concerns." The project was undertaken due to worries the waterfall, which is popular with tourists, is underdeveloped.
