This is Tekiwit falls at Sela’an River deep in upper Baram, in Penan and Kenyah peoples’ wonderland.

It is located about 6 hours torturous ride in a four-wheel-drive on slippery, muddy gravel road to Sela’an Segah Homestay, the nearest homestay to the falls.

From the homestay, take another further 40 minutes drive to the falls base, before you set on foot for 2 hours or more of jungle trekking to reach the falls.

This is, of course, a Penan country – so you have to be fit enough to take the arduous journey.

But once you reach the falls – the tiredness quickly dissipate – as you will be awed by the beauty of nature.

The 2-hour or more jungle trekking take you through this logged-over rain forest.

This is the road to Tekiwit falls – not your typical road.
