I'm not sure what you mean by "the openness of the scene is misplaced"?
Korkoro Falls is in dense rainforest as opposed to the relative open area this picture shows, so it can't be the same one (and it isn't, as you've named it). It just struck me as looking quite similar, but of course Korokoro doesn't (to my knowledge) have a safety barrier.
