Lovely place to visit
Sep 2020
Really enjoyed the sequence of waterfalls - a lovely place to visit. Only reached waterfall number 4 due to shortness of visit but will definitely return to make a day of it. RM5 for parking and RM2 per person.

A Beautiful waterfall close to KL city.

Parking
Paid parking: RM 8 for 3 persons so RM 2.70 per person?
Free parking: A little further from the entrance on the right side

Weekend crowd
Reached at 7.00am. There were 3-4 small groups (without kids) on different levels of the waterfall. By 8.30am, most places were crowded. We were at tier 5 at that time. People were doing BBQ next to the falls too.

Tiers
Expect no direction signs. The waterfalls come from a very high source, so there are actually many tiers. 7 are the most popular ones but you will pass by smaller ones too. After tier 4, there's no stairs anymore. The direction might be confusing because there are two diverging pathways. The right one is a mud track going upwards and the left is more rocky going to the left. Follow the left for the falls. The right one is for hiking. After tier 5, the trails are just rocks next to the falls.

Make wiser decisions
Monkeys took our food at tier 5. 2 came from nowhere and the rest of the gang joined. So, eat and keep your food inside. Tho many families were having big picnics. Not sure if monkeys didn't dare come close to them or not. Bring a plastic bag to throw your rubbish please. It's so painful to discover a waterfall only to see food leftovers. Bring mosquito repellent. We brought and nothing bit us.

That's all from me. Hope this helped!

Nice change from the city
Jan 2020
After climbing down from the Batu caves there is nothing quite like a soothing paddle in the lake at the bottom of these waterfalls. The locals clearly love the place and splash about happily in the agreeably cool waters. Watch out for the monkeys!

Easy hike & beautiful sight!
Feb 2020
About 45 minutes drive from KL city center and parking is ample. Entrance fee is RM 2 per person for local and RM5 per person for foreigner.

As mentioned, there are 7 tiers of fall in total. My personal favorite is the third level as it is closer to level 2 (in case level 3 gets crowded) and near to public toilet. Wild monkeys are around but as long as you hide your food & drinks you should be fine. Do not feed them as advised.

Come early if you can so you can really pick your spot and don't have to bother climbing higher for a spot.

Beautiful waterfalls
Feb 2020 • Couples
Loved the waterfalls! Deff worth going. They are not very far out of town and you do not need a tour guide. The first 4 levels are great very easy hike however the 5th is a lot harder and I don't think worth the trek, we did not go further than that. It wasn't busy at all when we went about 11:30am and not many monkeys around either.

Great Hiking & Waterfall Experience
Dec 2019
Good way to spend a few hours hiking and soaking in the crystal clear water. There are seven levels of waterfall. On weekends levels one to four can be a bit crowded. Families and groups will also bring lots of food to cook and picnic here. Level five onwards have less people because you have to start climbing steep slopes which make it difficult for children or those carrying loads of food. If you want more privacy then head up to the top of level six. After an hour of hiking you will be rewarded with a waterfall with crystal clear water. An excellent spot to take a dip with the fishes, rest and relax.

The whole place provides great photo opportunities, especially at levels five onwards. My favourite is using slow-mo to capture the water flowing down at surreal slow speed.

The drive from Kuala Lumpur is less than an hour. Parking fee is RM 5. Entrance fee is RM 5 for foreigners, RM 2 for locals and RM 1 for senior citizens.

Beautiful but challenging hike amongst waterfalls
Oct 2019 • Friends
Really enjoyed this hike. The hike is organised in levels and after level 5 there is no path making it tricky underfoot. You will need good trainers or walking boots if you want to go to level 7, which is the top of waterfall where level 6 is at the bottom, or beyond. It wasn’t as dirty as the previous reviewer said. I was there at midday so perhaps there’s been a clean up or not many people had arrived yet. Lots of monkeys at level 1 and 2 but saw nothing after that.

Kanching water falls
Oct 2019 • Friends
Clear water falls close to Kuala Lumpur...

Consists of seven waterfalls one above the other

First four has well laid steps and maintained properly and suitable for kids and family. Take care of your belongings and food from monkey.

Levels above four will be trail without steps... Path is marked using paints... Not suitable for kids and family. No monkey issues above level four.

Go early and move out before 11 if you want to enjoy nature peacefully. After 10 the places is crowded with locals camping, music, BBQ smoke.

Entry for foreigners RM 5

Great experience
Aug 2019
This was the final part of a tour and also the highlight for me. Plenty of waterfalls the lower falls are quite busy and lots of monkeys about so beware of your belongings as they will try to steal especially food. We climbed to the higher waterfalls where there were no monkeys and not as busy and it was worth the climb. It was relaxing and had great photo opportunities just be aware the rocks are slippy there are signs warning you but saw a few people fall over. Not recommended for people with mobility issues
