Head to Kg Sahom as the landmark. Kg. Sahom is not directly accessible from the North-South Highway. Visitors from the north will have to exit at Gopeng and head to Jeram town. From the south, visitors will have to exit the highway at Tapah to proceed to Chenderiang town. Once arriving at Kg Sahom, proceed to take the junction to Pos Dipang. (Image 1) Proceed along the tarred village road till reaching the outskirts of Pos Dipang village.(here) There is a clearing by the side of the road suitable for vehicles to park. Visitors can also park at the road shoulder without obstructing passing traffic. From here, proceed by foot.

Up the road there is a junction into the oil palm estate (Image 2), take this right junction going towards the direction of the stream. At the edge of the estate is an orang asli village home, a jungle trail continues beside it. Further in, there is an empty village hut where there is 2 path choices. Visitors can scale up the hill on the left behind the hut (Image 3) to use the hill trail that bypass the lower falls to Kopor Fall 3. Or proceed straight using the river side trail to reach the first waterfall. (Image 4)
