Gehol fall is a 2 tier waterfall that is rather tall as a whole. Estimated to be around 3-4 stories tall, the top tier is a segmented waterfall that has different streams of water cascading down a steep rocky cliff covered with lush greenery. This unusual waterfall also has a small chest deep pool with a huge boulder positioned right in front of it. The lower tier is a horsetail fall. There is no clear trail, a guide is recommended for visitors who wish to visit the waterfall.
Gehol fall is located in the same region as Lata Meraung fall. Both share the same access road, however Gehol fall is nearer while Lata Meraung is deeper in. Start by navigating to Kg Sungai Lekok, at the junction turn right (Image 1) and head to Kg Orang Asli Sungai Kiul. The narrow road is properly tarred and shared by traffic from both directions. Follow this road and keep an eye out for the offroad right junction. This section off the road is quite bumpy and is a mix of pebble and soil. Visitors with normal sedan car should park by the clearing beside the road and proceed by foot. There is no parking inside with only small patches of clearing, hence large groups should not drive inside and park outside as well without obstructing the road.
While there is no clear trail to the waterfall, the jungle itself has been developed for agricultural activities. Signs of human path is visible thou a guide is still highly recommended. Follow the main estate road in till arriving at a small hut near a stream. Before reaching the hut, there is a right trail going down to the oil palm estate. Follow this trail down to join the dirt road. This dirt road is used by local estate vehicles. Deeper in, visitors will encounter a forked path.(Image 2) Keep to the left footpath and not the right double trek road. Proceed along this trail till a wide open area is visible. A family of orang asli is staying here with their house clearly visible. Take the right junction going down the orchard plains instead or following the main trail up the hill. After passing by the abandoned hut (Image 3), look for the left trail down to the river. The trail down is beside a tree covered with vines. It is not obvious and easy to miss. From here on, visitors will have to river trek the rest of the way following the gentle shallow stream to reach the waterfall.
