At the edge of the stairs, there is a barrier or fence made of iron pipes.
To go down the stairs is not too difficult if you have good stamina. After approximately 20 minutes of travel, you will have arrived at the bottom of the waterfall. However, if it rains, the path will be slippery, and you have to be careful when going down the stairs.
