During a visit there I took myself to see that even a small waterfall but rather was for my children play there. These waterfalls have been the subject of water to the river that divides the flow of tropical forests in FRIM. The river does not so big and also not very clean, but there aja people and small children playing and bathing in the river tersebut.Tidak far from the waterfall area there is an area called 'Kampong Java'. There I saw a row of houses on stilts and some ordinary houses. I do not know what they meant to give the name 'Kampong Java', or indeed the people of Java used to live there?
