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!

The Gunung Pulai Recreational Forest is easily accessed from the north (off the main north-south highway from the Kulaijaya exit) or south (go to Pekan Nanas township and then head north). It's a 45 minute drive from Johor Bahru or Nusajaya. The forest is cool, refreshing, well covered and can be accessed comfortably at any time of day and in... More

Its definitely a good place for family or friends to gather and trek. People along the way will greet each other, its nice and pleasant place to go with the nature. Went there almost every weekend to take some peace from the greens.
