Follow the main trail. A broken concrete bridge after an hour walk. A small falls on your right where you could take a break before continuing.

A trail, very vague at first, leads to the left (N03 20.60' E101 38.13') The trail itself is clear but it will look like it has not been visited for some time. Ferns on the trails a little overgrown. Just continue the walk until you see another bridge. From the bridge you could see the main falls about 200 meters away.

We went there yesterday. The 4x4 trail in the description has been completely overgrown. There is a hiking trail which is quite overgrown but clear. Its best to wear long sleeves and trousers. The waterfall is beautiful and clean.

When there today. A good trek. The construction is now a fully developed housing estate. The main path leading to the waterfall block by falling tree. Found another way around it. Bring parang. Soo beautifull and clean.

We reached the broken bridge then we went up all the way after that and we couldnt find the left fork leading to the falls youre speaking about. We hiked all the way up till the trail ended. Hope to get clearer instructions on how to reach the falls. Thanks !
