Do not expect a big waterfall on an island as small as Weh. Yet as the fall in Pria Laot river is the only one the island can boast of, this small but multi-tiered fall located in protected forest was being made more accessible. Work was in progress surfacing the first couple of hundred metres of the access road. Next came a concrete footpath with two bridges under construction. But that eventually changed into an unpaved path and the last metres we had to clamber over rocks and wade through the river.

Thus we reached the pool under the waterfall which in places is 1.5 m deep. We had a swim and a 'massage' under the fall.

Directions: At the bridge in the Sabang-Gapang road at Pria Laot turn inland. Soon you have to park your vehicle and walk the remaining half km or so.
