Accessibility4WD and trekking

To reach the remote Tigok waterfall, you must first take the Bidor exit of the North-South Highway. Just before reaching Bidor, turn right into a small road, Jalan Paku. A few hundred meters after passing under the highway, you will see a signboard to two schools in Kg Senta and Pos Gedong. The road until Kg Senta is in good condition, but for the next 8 km to Pos Gedong you need a 4WD. At N4 09.32 E101 20.67 you will pass a small waterfall, Lata Senta, located just beside the road.

A 4WD is needed

There are several difficult stretches, the road condition will depend on the weather, and you have to cross the river. A few hundred meters before reaching Pos Gedong there is nice waterfall, Lata Serol, not far from the road (N4 09.986 E101 22.307) You can ask for a guide in pos Gedong.

Pos Gedong

From Pos Gedong a former logging road leads you to a ridge which you have to follow for several hours, after which you must river trek the last km to the fall. Better to arrange for a guide in Pos Gedong, and camp overnight there, it is a long trek and you have to climb a lot, as the fall is located at an altitude of more than 700 m.

And finally river trekking

As this fall is not often visited, there is no real trail along the river. Parang needed and a lot of chopping. You will pass another small waterfall and then the louder and louder sound of falling water indicates that you have finally arrived at the Tigok fall.

A very impressive waterfall

The Tigok fall is quite spectacular and powerful, and also completely unspoilt. Please keep it that way, do not leave ANY rubbish behind. Just enjoy nature. And be prepared for a long and tiring trek back.... This is a remote fall
