Way Lalaan waterfall is situated at the foot of  Tanggamus Mountain. It is a terraced waterfall with a distance of 200 m from one terrace to another.  The waterfall stream comes from  a river of Way  Lalaan that disembogues into Semangka bay.  The downfall reaches the ground from a height of approximately 11 m.

The waterfall has been famous since  1937—the era of Dutch Colonial Government. The stone ladder that leads down to the base of the waterfall was also built in that era.
