Sg Tua Fall

The parking area by the road shoulder is barricaded blocking any vehicles from parking.(Image 1) The situation is not helped by the narrow road shoulder along the stretch of the road which makes it impossible to park safely. The lack of visitors however does help reduce litter by irresponsible visitors.

If you plan to visit this waterfall, do bring a plastic bag along. In the event there is rubbish left by irresponsible individuals, you can contribute and do our part to keep nature's paradise clean.
Thank you~

Opposite of the small catchment (pool) according to the 2nd pic, there is another LOWER tier of the falls where there is also a concrete trail/stairway leading DOWNWARDS to a green-colored hanging bridge (be warned that HALF the stairway has been washed away and there is a diversion turning RIGHT through a short jungle walk that can lead to the concrete walkway and the green hanging bridge and eventually the lower tier of the P3 falls where there is also toilet/washroom facilities - sorry NO pics as yet as I only went there for a RECCE)

I have been to P2 a few times. Have not try P3. Anyway P2 is suitable for families as it is a stream not a waterfall. Quite shallow so no worries if you are bringing kids along. The trek is also very easy.
