I arrived there pretty early with my 11 year-old daughter - about 08:00, after leaving Singapore at 06:30. The first thing I noticed was that all the trash from the day before was still strewn around the place. The waterfalls (there's two) are ok, but it looks like there's more areas beyond the second one that are closed off. The... More

An ok place to visit if you are in Kota Tinggi. A refreshing stop just for the waterfall. Has an entry ticket for individuals as well as a vehicle. However it is thoroughly neglected Place so much in want of maintenance. We spent an hour or so, early in the morning so it was manageable once the people start coming... More

The pool with slide tube, water were extremely dirty & brown color. I'm truly scared to touch the water and feel like the pool for cows to swim. Toilet with algae, no worker taking... More

Went there in afternoon. Clear sky. Took bus from JB city square to kota tinggi. From kota tinggi shuttle bus to water fall is available once an hour. It charges 3RM. Else you can take taxi, which is always available for 25RM[4pax, negotiable to 23RM]. We directly went to the top waterfall. There is a net with DANGER written on... More

Visited with friends in the afternoon. Charged 50 RM for 3 adults + car. The hike was decent, but there was trash and garbage EVERYWHERE. Not only were locals leaving their garbage, but it looked like the place hadn't been cleaned in months. The lower area was ok for a swim, but don't waste your time.

This waterfall area falls under the greater Kota Tinggi waterfall resort. There are regular abseiling tours to the waterfalls (known as Pelepah waterfalls) which you can pre-book. Your hike to see the waterfalls will begin from the gate of the resort. Please be advised, this hike is not for the leisure loving. There are places where you will have to... More

If you're going there to just witness a waterfall then it's alright. But recently the quality of the place has worsen. Dirty diapers everywhere and litter as well. Such a shame.

The park is not well taken care of. There are rubbish here and there. 2. The... More

The Kota Tinggi falls have always been a good pitstop for me en route up north to, say Melaka, or KL etc. In recent years it appears a little run down, adjacent development seem to have overtaken it. Still a good place to pitstop, cool off sitting under the curtain of falling water on a good day, just to relive... More
