Sagoh Fall is a tall fan waterfall with crystal clear and very cold waters. An impressive scene when viewed in person with a strong chilling breeze emanating from the falls. The base of the fall has a waist deep pool with a deeper one situated downriver between canyon cliffs. To visit the waterfall, visitors will have to seek permission of the Tok Batin of Kg Tidul village and hire a guide to help navigate the moderately challenging trail. Access to this region is the biggest challenge to visit this waterfall as the roads are in bad shape which requires an offroad capable vehicle (preferable with 4 wheel drive) or traveling light like the locals do on motorcycles.
The access road to the village is off Jalan Tersang - Sg Koyan (Route 1504). There is also no petrol stations in the interior region, so visitors need to be prepared in advance for both the entry and exit trip. There is a google POI marking of the road junction. (4.1172, 101.7781) From here on, it is a straight forward road all the way to Kg Tigol. Visitors should 1st meet up with the tok batin of Kg Tigol village and getting his consent before proceeding to Kg Ulu Tidul. The tok batin will also assist to announce your arrival via walkie talkies to the village to ensure access is free and passable.
Exploration Notes : It is said that there is a second taller Sagoh Fall situated upriver. Will update if visited in the future.
