From here you start trekking, passing orchards and crossing a second river until you reach the Pahlawan Eco Resort. Can be crowded with 4WD people during weekends. After the resort you enter the jungle. There are quite a few trails, which can make orientation a bit difficult.

Entering the jungle

After a while you will reach a split in the trail, the left trail leads to the first fall, Jeram Antu. To reach the upper fall you must either trek back to the junction and take the right fork, or you can river trek

River trekking to second fall

The second fall, Jeram Enchau, is a nice one, in two steps, and with a big pool. After this fall you can continue to the upper fall, but there is not really a trail anymore.

The trek to the lower fall takes about 45 minutes from the Eco Resort. As you go through the Eco Resort there is a 4x4 track and a grassy track next to it. Take the grassy track. We didnt see where the trail forks so we river trekked/scrambled up to the upper fall and beyond and then river trekked back to the Eco Resort. The river trek is pretty easy and you can find lots of smaller falls and pools along the way.
