Public holiday in Johor so we decided to go to Gunong Pulai. The park has reopened a few months back. New signposts, resurfaced bitumen road and rotten trees have mostly been removed. There's toilet facility near the park office at the middle waterfall area. No more foodstalls inside park. Odd, there's almost no rubbish bin so bring along a disposable... More

There are 2 type of trails to the submit. Easier way up is through tar road. And for those who would like to have more challenging may to through the woods (quite safe just follow the trail with marking). Good place for REAL exercise with fresh air and water. You may like the Chilling water from the waterfall that can... More

The nearest mount that people stay at JB & Singaporean can go. Beware of monkeys and take care of your own trash. Trail runners will enjoy the elevation

Singaporeans are always looking for day trips in neighbouring countries. This time we planned for this waterfall and premium outlets on our way back. ONLY drawback was that u DO NOT get anyyyy taxi or ride back from this place to Kulai town, no UBER listing or internet network for that matter. You must arrange for a taxi to be... More

The parking charge is $RM2. It's a 10minute walk from the entrance to the waterfall. Found it to be quite filthy with thrash though. My friends and I had a good workout walking up to the summit with many steep slopes. Best to put on good walking shoes and bring with you 1 litre of drinking water. It took us... More

The waterfall is amazing if you take bath. You need to be extra cautious to adjust yourself under the falls on the slippery rocks. Its like a massage when your reach sit at the falls. Also there are small pools to enjoy with family.

There are two paths, on the asphalt and on in the forest. We took the one said harder and it was very easy. There is nothing much to see at the top and the trek itself is fun. But it's not worth the journey for someone who went there from Singapore.
