There are two paths, on the asphalt and on in the forest. We took the one said harder and it was very easy. There is nothing much to see at the top and the trek itself is fun. But it's not worth the journey for someone who went there from Singapore.

A pretty place to visit - we went on Sunday and it was fabulous to see so many local people gathering together as families to enjoy a swim! It was very deep in places but it was clearly marked!

Great place to visit and unwind after a long week of work. Good for beginners as it is not too steep and can either chose from a jungle trail or a pavement trail. At least 4hrs hike all in all.

Gunung Pulai is 654m high, which one could choose to either hike via the jungle route or the road. We took 4 hours trekking up and down Gunung Pulai - 2 1/2 hour up and 1 1/2 hour down. Before the summit, one could see the beautiful cityview. However, the summit is a military compound that is not accessible. There... More

Have been at this waterfall (near Kota Tinggi) many years ago and I still like it. It is not a real huge waterfall, but the basin underneath the waterfall invites plenty of people to take a cooling bath and to have some splashing fun. However, I heard that meanwhile they are charging parking fees which equates to an entrance fee,... More

We expected a big waterfall, but it was not that big, and lots of people were there, so not that fun.

Its a nice hike up with loads of friendly smiling people. The hike itself is relatively easy. Its a nice weekend exercise for the whole family but the waterfalls can only be a pit-stop to relax and refresh.. the pool is small and the path leading up to the falls is filled with trash.. sad!
