Hi all,

Which is the best waterfall in West Malaysia ?

Planning to go during next school holiday. Not too remote as I'm not really into into jungle hiking :)

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

P/S I know I can just browse the web to look for them. I would like to have feedback from people who have recently visited them. TQ

You sure you don't want to trek right? Okay, the one in the national park in Sabah. Awesome. Nuff said.

Why not take a holiday with the family at Taman Negara? Awesome, I tell you...

I have to say that I'm the foremost expert on waterfalls in Malaysia as proven in my blog.
The most suitable waterfall for you should be Chilling Falls in Kuala Kubu Bahru. No hiking. Just a stroll down paths and crossing 5 rivers. If you think crossing the river is too much, you can always enjoy a picnic by the side of the river. I think I featured Chilling Falls in my blog and feel free to ask.

I haven't been to enough waterfalls to know which is the best. The one I used to go to a lot when I was a youngling was Kuala Woh near Tapah. The falls at KKB are pretty good as well.

Chilling is a nice place to go, alternatively if you want to have picnic with children, then Gabai waterfalls worth consideration. But be there early.

Serendah is not bad as well.

There is one at Ulu Bendol. It is located halfway between Seremban and Kuala Pilah in Negri Sembilan.

Make sure you go to the waterfall inside, not the one outside which are meant more for the family to swim and frolick in...

Drive along NS Highway to Seremban and from Seremban, drive along the road towards Kuala Pilah. About 15 km later, after some winding road, is Ulu Bendol.

You can checkout a girl's hunt for waterfalls here (http://www.malfreemaps.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3521). My favorites are Lata Kijang in Tapah and Sekayu in Terengganu.

If it's a half day trip,i would suggest Ulu Yam riverside or waterfall (not big)
there's plenty of them.Or Ulu langat ( Sg Lui,Tekala waterfalls,Sg Gabai etc.)or drive to PD (1.5hrs).It's good for picnic with lots of homemade n/lemak,sandwich.

I'll vote for Lata Kinjang in Tapah. Walk to the middle of the suspended bridge, look 100m up to the top of the fall and then look 100m down to the bottom . Amazing height and volume of water. Enjoy the cool breeze and ozone. You can infact see the fall from the NS highway, north bound.

Thank you everyone.
I'll find out more about Chiling or Lata Kinjang. Taman Negara sounds good and I'll probably plan for that after the falls.
Can't remember when was the last time I went for picnic. But I do remember the food we brought, it was curry chicken with bread and the drinks are cooled by the waterfall.

Make sure the bread is the Bengali Loti and not from either Gardenia or High 5. It must be baked open-topped with a rich thick brown crust... thats the best part in the chicken curry...

The one in Tapah is actually Lata Kinjang (http://waterfallsofmalaysia.com/29kinjang.php). (N4.30029 E101.25446)

Lata Kijang (http://www.waterfallsofmalaysia.com/42kijang.php) - with the tallest single drop fall in Malaysia at 350ft, is in Negeri Sembilan. Only 70km from Cheras Batu 9 toll plaza. (N3.19507 E101.98780)

Tar road leads right up to the car park, 100m away from the base. Here are couple of stores selling sourveniors and snacks, and also the public wash roooms.

It's about a few hundred meters well paved concrete trek and steps alongside nummerous smaller cascading pools & falls, o reach the fall with the suspended bridge. No, no real jungle trekking & leaches.

This place can be quite deserted during weekdays but busy during weekends. Better to pack your own meals. Not too far from Kampar if you love the famous curry chicken bread, awesome with hot coffee after dipping in the freezing water.

Oh dear, I must have mistaken the title of the thread. After all my geography isn't too good, and Malaysia is going south isn't it? The water fall in Kuala Kubu Baru like Vsat mentioned, is simply lovely.
