Easy to reach from Kuala Lumpur: seven levels of waterfalls, some with natural swimming pools beneath. Warning: this is a really popular place for teenagers, so go early in the morning before they get up! Highly recommended by us.

We visited here after reading the fantastic reviews, and we weren’t disappointed! The trek up to the 7th level is quite challenging at times, especially as we’d had a lot of rain the night before so the rocks were quite slippery, so wear good shoes!...More

Went on a weekday mid-March. There are 7 levels of falls. Needless to say, the higher you go, the more spectacular the falls. There are staircases, steeper as you go higher, going up to the 4th level. There are natural as well as dammed pools...More
