The place is supposed to open a 9am. We arrive at 10am and waited until 10.30am. Doors were still closed and no one show up! Not very professional for the most impressive waterfall in Malaysia!

Picturesque waterfall. Avoid going there during rainy season coz it can be slippery and water cab be rough. Bring back your waste coz not so many waste bins. Waterfall area quite clean👍

Use Google Maps and it will lead you directly to the Sungai Pandan waterfall. You have to cross a quarry before you reach the falls. The waterfall is just amazing. Water is cold. The park is well maintained. RM2 per person and RM3 for parking....More

Beautiful waterfall and the road to the waterfall can be a bit confusing cos it passes a quarry and unmarked road. Have to pay for entrance fee and the place is clean. Path towards that waterfall is on unpath.

Lovely waterfall. Easy 5min walk from the carpark. The fish there are the type that nibble dead skin from your feet - so free fish spa!

I don't think so as Sg Pandan Waterfall is way off the beaten track.. Maybe check with Rapid Kuantan for confirmation. As far as I know Rapid Kuantan do ply to Sg Lembing town.
