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

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.

Recently brought some friends from oversea to visit this place. It has been privatized for some time, so we need to pay entrance fee (RM 7.60 for Malaysian and RM15 for foreigner) compared to it's FOC years ago. We are disappointed due to: 1. 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

The water fall was nice location to hangout. The main pool is on the top which is shallow and nets were placed as a barrier where it gets deeper. Lot of mini water falls where you can chill out. Entrance 15RM and parking fees are there. Water is clean and place is tidy.
