Our taxi from the hotel cost RM50 for a return and we pre arranged with the driver when we wanted picking up, all worked... More

This place has been destroyed by over development and regulation. The waterfall has huge signs on it saying no entry, security guards patrol the tracks and if you go in the water blow a whistle. The environment has been destroyed with concrete and excessive raking of the leaves. Don't bother going here!

Everyone must try the water from tip to top...Unfortunately the tallest waterfalls was closed due to safety purpose (its about 30ft depth) ... the rocks in... More

This tourist attraction was quite busy when we were there on the Malaysian New Year's Day holiday, but the relatively short hike (10 minutes up stairs) to the upper falls had significantly fewer people. The charge to enter the park is 10 MR per person, and it is a single day pass. There is food available for sale inside the... More

Offers a refreshing and relaxing swim, and a fresh recharge in a rainforest setting. There are multiple swimming holes among, above, and below the falls, as well as two... More

Kota Tinggi Waterfalls is a beautiful place to spend your time. This location is suitable for group tour, couples as well as families. The clean and cold water at the top of the hill will is always a plus. The entrance fee is very reasonable. RM7.50/adult, RM3.50/kid and RM3.00/car. It is truly worthwhile paying some fee since the area is... More

You can enjoy various type of music from waterfall, birds, insects, trees etc... Dip your feet in the pool to... More

My friend drove me here from JB so I had a bit of an insider edge, great for a swim in the cool relaxing water after a big drinking session the night before. Really cool refreshing water and its even better when it rains. Might be harder to get to if you weren't driving Saturday was good but supposedly Sunday... More
