Falls of Hope (Sweetgwendoline Bailey/Eldowyn Inshan)
Cliffs rise high above, with bridges to provide a path for travellers between the caves that have been adopted by intrepid traders. Around them, waterfalls and plants that hang towards the floor where, again, more caves provide a home for delights brought by travellers from far away. The whole, then, becomes a rising gallery of water and vegetation, lush and tranquil.

I always go clockwise about the Fairelands so the first sim after the junctions that I entered was Falls of Hope. At first I thought it was going to be a bare desolate sim with a lot of bones and dead trees scattered about.
I could not have been more wrong.
The sim is vibrant with plants, animals and of course the shops. You start by going up a thick vine bridge out of the waters of the Junctions and go through a series of shops in little alcoves with glowing fences that have a very Lord of the Rings vibe to them. At the central point there is a meeting tree and to get to it you ZIP LINE. Loads of fun! It's circled by some oversized butterflies.
Between each alcove are the falls themselves, which spill down into the lands below and feed the vegetation and animals. The grand central alcove is carved like a great dragon to watch over all. Down on the grounds you will find all manner of critters, magical and mundane, I think my fav is the flamingo family. And some cute troll like creatures guard the ground.
There is defiantly something to spot at every turn and so many wonderful shops!
