Teluk Sulaiman & Teluk Subang
This is what I called the 1st waterfall in Teluk Subang.
How to Get There
Why don’t you just walk? I thought that you are a true adventurer? Nope, you are wrong, because I am a lazy bastard. Hmm, No, I am not a bastard so you can revise that word. You may actually replace it with "awesome traveler". Yeah, that quite fits me. Anyway, the point is, you will need another 1 hour if you reach the Dayak Village by walking. I don’t have time and energy for that so f*ck it, I’ll take ojek.
Dayak Traditional Rural - Need to be noted that they are not as traditional as you think. They have motorcycle, understand bahasa & certainly well-mannered.
Then the problem arises. If you were there during a holiday season, there is usually a transportation mode - consists of a cart attached to a motorcycle - hence it can bring multiple tourists and will charge you around 15k / person / one way. Or there will be ojek (google it if you don’t know what it is) that will charge you 50k / 2 ways to reach Dayak Village. But I was there during weekdays and I was the only tourist that day. So all the locals (men) were going to the forest for farming, means that there is no Ojek, cart or anything. Cursed me!
I walked around and I saw a motorcycle parked at one house and I greeted the owner. Basically I was expecting that he would be my guide to the falls or at least he would agree to transfer me to Dayak Village. I used my charm there, tell him that I was alone and was coming here from a distant land. If you are traveling solo, this skill is a must have ability because you know what, it always works! He said that I can use his motorcycle and then he called some kids that were playing not far from his house, and asked them to accompany me to the waterfalls. The kids agreed. So I have motorcycle, I have new friends that also will be my guide and now I am a happy man.
Teluk Subang Beach. However since this is a fisherman village, hence the cleanliness is not highly maintained.
Depending on your trip arrangement, still I’d suggest you to start it as early as possible. I plan to visit at least 2 waterfalls on Teluk Subang so I should get up early and begin my trip at 7AM. The reason is because it will take a quite amount of time if you are desired to visit more than 1 waterfall on Teluk Subang. So for your information, there are 3 waterfalls available there which the name itself are not really firmed. The explanations are as below:
3rd Waterfall (Bidadari Falls)
This is the closest waterfall from the beach and it only takes around 5 minutes to reach this area. The falls is quite small but the pond is awarding. As far as I know, this is the only waterfall that already had a firm name. Most of the tourists are only visit this waterfall before embarking to the next island.
Bidadari Waterfall - I think this is the only falls that has its own firm name.
This waterfall is claimed to be the most interesting one among the others since it consists of several levels that you can explore wholly. In fact, I haven’t been here yet so I couldn’t give any further details about its particular. However, I knew from the locals that this falls is located around 30-40 minutes from dayak village. Means that you are required to have sufficient time & physical fitness as well since the trail is a bit adventurous.
The farthest falls from Teluk Subang which is situated around 60-70 minutes trekking from Dayak Village. It consists of 1 waterfalls with 15-25 meters height. I was here during my trip there and I’d suggest you to bring enough water & wearing a proper trekking apparel - just to make your life easier ;)
