After walking for 15 minutes at the gate entrance, you will find that the Stokel Thread is made up of two waterfalls side by side. The journey to the location is not an easy thing to do. On the way, you will pass a second small waterfall that falls into the pool below. We couldn’t tell if our guide said it was possible to jump in the pool.
So we failed to do it right away. Since then, we realized that we should just jump, but maybe only after the pond filled with rainwater. Benang Stokel Waterfall is not the most powerful waterfall we have ever discovered, but the environment is simply unique.
