Following a paved road, you will reach a large car park. From there, a short trail will lead you to the entrance.

The suspension bridge has known better days. Take good care!

After going round a small hill, roughly a 300 meters walk, the main waterfall comes into view. Fairly dramatic though only 18 meters in height but about 40 meters wide. Plenty of cool, crystal clear water to fill a large pool of water. This is the focal point of the more adventurous picnickers.

Officially the upper fall is out of bounds, as it is in a water catchment area. So you have to decide for yourself... It is possible to reach this fall, although care must be taken, the slopes can be slippery.

This is a very nice stopover when traveling to Gerik or the E-W highway. A picturesque park with plenty of picnic huts, a winding river, swim spots and nice lowland jungle. Take some food, your camera and enjoy a few hours off the road soaking in the rainforest.
