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.

The entrance for foreigners is now 15RM. Exit Customs and take Maju No. 227, the journey is about an hour. From there, take a cab. The fare is 25RM give and take. It's a nice waterfall, water is cooling as well. Recommended to spend about 2 hours including photo taking.
