“nature's waterpark!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

stunning waterfall and not-too-cold a pool for a quick dip and shower under the falls!
A great half day out from Kuantan (about 30 mins drive)

“This is a great waterfall out of the way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

You need the sat nav to get to the waterfall. It is out of the way, but once there is is very good. There is a small charge to pay. You have to take the quarry road and follow this road to the waterfall. The facilities are basic but clean. The views are good and the water is cool. Take care when walking over the metal bridge and then onto the rope bridge well worth doing. Only down side it is not well signposted.

“Great place to cool down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

My family goes at least 5 times a year to cool down in the fresh water. We enjoyed a swim below the waterfall and the kids love to splash around in the shallow parts.
You have to pay a small fee, but the area is surprisingly well maintained. There are toilets and showers, where you can get changed. If you are non-local, it would be advisable to respect the local culture and to wear shirt and shorts, no bikinis.
Come early to get a shady place and to avoid the crowd on the weekends.

“Refreshing and Recharging”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Went here based on reviews. With A GPS navigated easily; however, you do drive through an active quarry on way to the destination. It's about 40 minutes from town, past the army base. Went on School Holidays and even with a peak crowd, it was still enjoyable and large enough to absorb everyone. I would highly recommend it if you are driving and in the area.

“One of the best place to visit in Kuantan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This is a very nice waterfall and must see location if you are visiting Kuantan. The place could improved by providing better services like better toilets and changing rooms etc. The entrance fee is RM 2 for adult and RM 1 for child for locals. For foreigners RM 5 for adult and RM 3 for child. Make sure you dont visit the lake during dry season.
