Taka Melor is located in Kampung Tenang,near the town of Labis in Segamat,Johor.To get here,follow the route N-S Highway,exit Yong Peng (S) or (U) and follow the sign to Yong Peng and then Labis.The signboard Kg.Tenang is very well marked and you wont miss it. Another name for this village is Pekan Ayer Panas as there is a ‘Hot Spring’ located in here as well.
Get ready to turn right once you see the Muslim cemetery on the left,which also houses the shrine of Tok Tenang,the founder of this village.

You wont miss this,just a few meters after the cemetery.
Car park is very big but hardly any vehicle if you come on weekdays.

Area is very suitable to house big group of campers.
Th stream has one attractive, single fall , and a pool that is really inviting for a swim
The only way to go down is over the rocks
It is possible to climb to the top of the fall, but be careful, the rocks can be slippery. It is very serene,pristine and quiet on top. Not sure if there is any 2nd tier falls on top as there is no trek marking, the only way is to follow the stream. Thanks to Rasfarin for contributing pictures and text
Climbing to the top. Carefully!

Check if you need a permit before planning a waterfall trip. More information here
Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety
Went there on 5 May 2012.Super big hole on road 50m before collapse bridge,only motorbike can access.Be Careful.Pool not deep because of sand residue at center.Leech every where.not recommended.
any idea if this is accessible currently?
Recently a visitor reported that as of January 2011 car/motorcycle access to the waterfall is cut-off due to a small bridge having been swept away by floods.
Nice place :) Is there any fish there?
There is indeed another falls, Salur Gajah, around this area, info given by locals. Has anyone been there before?
