JANGKAR WATERFALL, KPG. BIAWAK, LUNDU

Jangkar Waterfall is situated at Kampung Jantan (Inside Kpg Biawak, Junction on the left at Lundu-Sematan Road) which is about 90km from Kuching City. Take Approximately 1.30 minutes hike through cocoa plantation, rubber plantation, forest and cris-crossing stream to get there from Kampung Jantan.

The first time I went there was lead by Junglemike, loving it since then and make 5 returns bringing my close friends that are enjoying the nature along.

Though rarely got people visiting this Waterfall, it is advisable that you do not go there if you don't know the way as you might get lost in the forest. Most importantly, bring out whatever rubbish that you bring in. That the water supply for the village people. So, don't bring detergent of shampoo there to bath.

This is the place that I make a bet with Caren where I stop smoking and she drink less Coke. Its been Two years since the bet and i did stop.....

Will make a return to the Waterfall when weather permitting... Also, if raining heavily, please don't go to the Waterfall.. as waterfall will rise up in alarming pace.

Below are few pictures from all the visits...

    1. Hi Nicole,

      you can ask for the villager at Kampung Jantan to guide to the waterfall, unless someone in the group knows the way...

    yes. you need guide if its your first time as chance of getting lost at the rubber plantation very high since so many trail in there.. Ask around at Kampung Jantan, am sure you will find guide easily there..
