A trail leads to the lower waterfall

When you take the trail inside the jungle, you will soon reach the lower waterfall. To reach the upper tiers, you must cross the stream and climb up at the right side of the fall.

Quite powerful

During our visit local fishermen were busy catching fish in the turbulent water. And guides from a nearby eco-resort were preparing an abseiling exercise.

There are 2 clear trails to lower and upper falls. The lower fall trail just somewhere in front of the counter. And for the upper fall, the trail start just several meters before the lower trail. There is an idle bridge between both falls. The villager started collecting entry fee.

I visited the Geruntum falls during the Chinese New Year season. It is easy to miss it when there are no activity around the trail area where the waterfall is. There are no signages and it is almost hidden on the left side of the trail, but you will not miss the stream crossing under the trail and the couple of shacks there. The water looks clean, there is a campsite next to it and seemed to have been swept of rubbish earlier. The minus is that there are quite a bit of mosquitoes there. Coming in I passed through a palm oil plantation with many alternative routes. Stick to the main trail.
