Your tour guide will let you climb on the rocks and be very close to the falls, a great feeling. A bridge across the falls is a nice place for photography.

This waterfall is one of the famous tourist attraction at Terengganu, Malaysia. Sekayu is approximately 56 km from Kuala Terengganu and 16 km from Kuala Berang. There are buses and taxis regularly plying the main road to Kuala Berang and from there you can easily get a bus or taxi to Sekayu Waterfall. For direct bus to Sekayu, please call this number : 09-623 7789 (S.P Bumi) for latest time schedule and rates.

Along the way to the destination, you will pass through some traditional Malay villages. Padi fields, perhaps buffalos soaking themselves in the muddy water and villagers selling fresh corn by the road, giving you unspoiled country side scenery. RM 1.00 will be charged for each entry into the recreational forest.

The reason why Sekayu is very famous is because of its many unique treasure of such as its waterfall; a large and beautiful vertical fall with seven cascades water fall that had three different sloped level. Making this place a is very beautiful and charming for frolicking in its cool water while hearing the sound of the gentle water rushing down the slope.

Many people including me claims that the river here is the most crystal clear in whole Terengganu as you can clearly see your foot even though you are standing almost 1 meter in the water

The crystal clear and cold water that flow from the Sekayu and Tersat river and the beauty of the mother nature all around its will conjure a sense of peace and tranquillity making Hutan Lipur Sekayu is very suitable place for resting your mind, body, soul and also bringing your family for a picnic here and to take part in the many Recreational activities that can be found here.
Not much trekking to be done for lowest level of the waterfall except you have to climb the concrete stairs. Picnicking places and resting huts are along the way. Only when you are not satisfied with the lowest pool and intend to challenge the mountain, there the real trekking will take place. Even so,
is not going to be a difficult one as the mountain is not steep. If you are an expert in trees perhaps you can name some of the names of the trees along your way up. Sekayu is rich with Dipterocarp species such as Meranti and Damar Hitam (Shorea Species), Keruing (Dipterocarpus species) etc

All the tree and plant here are well marked with signage and brief description which are easy to see. The wild life service here also provide an area where visitor can see the many herb product and herb species on display in the open hall.In the Hutan Lipur visitor will also find the largest Collection of Herb in Malaysia at an arboretum of herb and forest fruit and rare traditional fruit at the Taman Pertanian Negeri.
