The Gunung Pulai Recreational Forest is easily accessed from the north (off the main north-south highway from the Kulaijaya exit) or south (go to Pekan Nanas township and then head north). It's a 45 minute drive from Johor Bahru or Nusajaya. The forest is cool, refreshing, well covered and can be accessed comfortably at any time of day and in... More

Its definitely a good place for family or friends to gather and trek. People along the way will greet each other, its nice and pleasant place to go with the nature. Went there almost every weekend to take some peace from the greens.

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
