Teho Fall is a 2 tier horsetail fall with a rather low drop of about 3m. Unlike the usual pattern of waterfalls, the water cascades down into a rock platform base before flowing into a large waist deep pool. Above the fall is a low height sloped cascade. This waterfall does not have a clear trail and is not suitable for beginners.
Head to Sungkai town as the landmark. Near the center of the town is a Petron station that leads to the inner region of Ulu Sungkai.(Image 1) Proceed inwards along the main tarred road towards National Wildlife Rescue Centre. A narrow road on the right of it leads to several indigenous villages. Continue along the tarred road till close to a clearing on the right alongside the river.(here) Visitors are advised to park nearby the clearing off the road shoulder without obstructing traffic. Avoid driving across the metal bridge elevated above the Sg. Sungkai river as it is precarious to drive across and has a steep on & offramp only suitable for tall suspension vehicles to pass.
Several cascade falls are also documented downriver. They are pictured below.
Exploration Notes : Upriver, no additional falls have been found other than some low height cascades.
