A nice rest hut has been built beside the waterfall.

Exploration notes : Turns out while the waterfall volume does reduce drastically during dry seasons there is actually sufficient water upriver. 2 man-made dams have diverted much water away for human consumption. Diverting from a left junction near the start of the Gng Ledang hiking trail, an unofficial trail leads to the stream where 2 waterfalls can be found. The landscape is treacherous hence beginners are not advised to attempt this.
The waterfall found upriver is pictured below.
