Organize your transport in Sungai Lembing or with the Tourist Office in Kuantan and you will head off around 6:30am from the local food court in the town center.
It is about 1 hour drive on a 4WD, quite bumpy in the back (I would not recommend the trip for people with back or disc problems. You will finally stop your drive at a river. Get ready to cross the river where you might get wet. Then you hike up the mountain along the river for around 90 minutes until you reach the waterfall. You cross the small river several times and you climb over rocks. It might be slippery. We went up with our two boys, 6 and 5, and they were fine and enjoyed it.
It is beautiful up there, although we didn't have a rainbow because it was a cloudy day. So we definitely have to go back!
Bring waterproof shoes. Local guides come with flip flops, but I couldn't manage. Hiking shoes might be too much as you have to take them off several times.
Don't forget mosquito repellent.
