Juang Falls 2

Head to Lubuk Timah falls as the landmark. The access road is on the left side of the road heading back to Simpang Pulai. If coming from Simpang Pulai, u-turn at the imperium entrance junction. The access junction is unmarked.(Photo 1) The access road inside is a double track gravel road that is narrow and overgrown but passable by sedan cars. There is an abandoned Muslim cemetery on right along the path. Not far in, there will be a rocky gravel stream crossing. Visitors with sedan cars may have to park here at the open space clearing nearby. Pass another rocky stream crossing and follow the trail till arriving at another open space clearing on the right.(Photo 2) Vehicles can be parked here as well.

There are 2 different trail. The trail on the left of the river is harder & vague but will lead to the 1st fall. The trail on the right is much easier but will bypass the 1st fall.
Right Trail: Take the right junction towards the river. There is a wide shallow riverbed cascade here. Cross the river and follow the clear jungle trail.(Photo 3) After about 700m of hike, fall 2 will be close by. Look for the trail that descends down to the river before the falls.
Left Trail The left trail is bushy and wild. There is no clear trail. At fall 1, visitors have to wade across the river to the right to connect back to the right trail. This trail should only be attempted for experienced individuals.

Photos of the falls below. The large and deep pools are great for a nice swim. Juang Fall 2.3 is a little harder to access. Visitors have to scale down a very steep and narrow cliff. Juang Fall 2.4 is similarly dangerous to attempt. The hill trail ends at Fall 3.

Strange Metal Plate

Fall 3

Exploration Notes : There is no more falls beyond fall 3. Only a low height river cascade is found. Also be careful of a strange metal plate at fall 2 that is partially submerged under the rocky riverbed. It is jagged edged and is a safety hazard. It looks like a very old & sturdy metal plate. We did not manage to remove it despite trying to dig it out.

"Rubbish exist when there is an imbalance of those willing to take action."

If you plan to visit this waterfall, do bring a plastic bag along. In the event there is rubbish left by irresponsible individuals, you can contribute and do our part to keep nature's paradise clean.
Thank you~
