Been there with my frens and we really enjoyed this Trekking cum Waterfall excursion. This is a 7 tier waterfall. It has an entry fees of 5MYR. Most of the people climbs the stairs till 3rd level. But if you are planning don't stop until 5th or 6th. It requires little bit of trekking in the forest hill. 5th level... More

We went here on the recommendation of our taxi driver and it was beautiful. I would recommend getting there early as there are less people. The bottom of the falls is busy but make your way past the stairs and use nature's stairs, climbing over roots and get to the top. It is tricky in parts but it is worth... More

There is a trail that keeps going and going but eventually does come to an end. It is a challenging hike to the very top. Below there is a lot of trash around and it is not very well kept up. But once I got higher up there were less people (none at the top actually) and less trash which... More

over-rated place. very messy and its better to stay at home instead of wasting time there. People throwing garbage everywhere and worst was people throwing used diapers in water pool and swimming in same pool. Should not be considered as a tourist place at all.

We visited the falls during Hari Raya at Templer Park, which was Very Busy! We reached the falls by taking 43 bus from rear of Central Market (3RM each). On entry there is a park fee of 5RM. It was steps, rocks, mud and walk to the falls. They were full of locals swimming, diving, wallowing and barbequing! I went... More

We visited the falls following the Batu Caves, a short taxi journey away costing 30 RM (£6), ask for Templer Park, both situated north of the city. We visited the falls on a recommendation from a taxi driver, and he didn't disappoint us. We reached the falls and upon entry there is a park fee of 3 RM, excellent value... More

I went there with slight trepidation due to the reviews mentioning piles of rubbish everywhere. Perhaps it was a weekday morning around 1030, there weren't too many people there to throw rubbish & being so early the cleaners had just done their rounds, I found the park to be clean. Even the rubbish bins were empty. My family which consisted... More

The place might look not so great n well mainteined, but the further u go up the hill u discover the real beauty of the place. 1st level of the waterfall is sure a place NOT to go n NOT to swim. Those who travels even with small kids can go up at least to level 3 or 4(the safest... More
