First of how do you go there.. I was a solo traveler so planned to use a Public Transport to have the local feel. It turnerd out to be risky later as higlighted later in my review. You will have to catch a bus from below place Dropped Pin near 2, Leboh Ampang, City Centre, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan... More

To begin, there are no public transportation going there so tske a taxi. Try to go as early as possible, preferably before 9 am to beat the locals. Don't go on a weekend. Wear rough shoes to be able to hike up the path to the higher level water falls (it can become slippery). The first two or three levels... More

Had a great outing with my family Kanching waterfall. Just be careful of the wild monkeys as they can get aggressive and snatch your unguarded belongings to look for food ..

I really enjoyed. No need to hike a lot to reach the waterfall but if you want to go to the top maybe 30-40 mins takes. Safety first comes always. Be careful and don't do risky moves. At the top you can hike inside the river for a while but be careful out the bees. Once me and my friends... More

Didn't take a tour to go there we used the public transport to get there it didn't cost so mush. And it was pretty easy. The nature is very beautiful. You can take a swim in the cold waters of the waterfalls and enjoy the nature.. there is a lot of wild monkeys so i would not recommend taking food..... More

Located about one hour from KL central, this wonder in the laps of nature is an essential for nature lovers traveling in and around the city. This place is relatively easy to find and although the lower waterfall and pools bustle with tourists and selfie warriors, the upper parts are relatively calm and serene. Having said that, it is quite... More

Nice place to be in for nature lovers. Bit of hill climb to reach the waterfall. The areas are well maintained and you might see up gradation work also. Great environment and picturesque view. Do not keep food items open with you as monkeys are nuisance. Also carry your water along there are shops at the entrance. Also good to... More

The hike to the highest waterfall took us 45 minutes and there was no one when we arrived at 8:45AM. It is a popular tourist area and the later it gets, the more crowded it becomes. Water is clear and there are dipping pools at several tiers as well as staircases that were constructed so the hike was easy, a... More
