This is our first trip to Gunung Pulai. Gunung Pulai is considered a relative easy hike, as a non hiker like us can make it up (with no previous training :) ). We arrived at 7.30am at the foot of the gunung/entrance. There were already many hikers there. It is a 5km hike up and 5km hike down hill. The... More

Better to early mornings before it gets warm. Locals come here for jugging during the weekends. It is about 4000 meters to reach to the top. You can have few stops by some little waterfalls on your way up.

This is no Niagara Falls. It is just a short, local waterfall ending in a shallow pool, that requires some trekking to reach. I was shy to introduce this when my friends enquired about waterfalls in Malaysia. In their mind they have images of Yosemite Falls, Angels Falls, Victoria Falls. It would be fool-hardy to make a special trip out... More

The power of nature is always a secret and interesting sitting near and hearing the water fall is extremely relaxing therapy for the whole family

After the previous landslide issue, I though this place had been permanently closed. Currently, one may pass through the closed gate via the small side path beside the main gate. However, the accumulation of debris has caused the staircase very tough to be walked. The highest point of this waterfall was inaccessible due to the landslide and it could be... More

There is a TNB station on top of the mountain so there is a metalled road and and hundreds of people of all ages go hiking on Sat/Sun, Some even bring their kids in prams up and some have young kids age 3 tagged...

I took my Australian friends there on 7/8/13 coz they saw it in Google and wanted to visited. We were supposed. To have a picnic there but was... More

It is not so easy for foreigner or people who don't have their own transport to go there. Nearest town nearby is Kulai. It took you round 10 mins drive from highway of Kulai exit. Upon reaching, you can see the main gate is closed but you can walk up there no worry. The amazing about rain forest is you... More
