The waterfall is amazing if you take bath. You need to be extra cautious to adjust yourself under the falls on the slippery rocks. Its like a massage when your reach sit at the falls. Also there are small pools to enjoy with family.

There are two paths, on the asphalt and on in the forest. We took the one said harder and it was very easy. There is nothing much to see at the top and the trek itself is fun. But it's not worth the journey for someone who went there from Singapore.

A pretty place to visit - we went on Sunday and it was fabulous to see so many local people gathering together as families to enjoy a swim! It was very deep in places but it was clearly marked!

Great place to visit and unwind after a long week of work. Good for beginners as it is not too steep and can either chose from a jungle trail or a pavement trail. At least 4hrs hike all in all.

Gunung Pulai is 654m high, which one could choose to either hike via the jungle route or the road. We took 4 hours trekking up and down Gunung Pulai - 2 1/2 hour up and 1 1/2 hour down. Before the summit, one could see the beautiful cityview. However, the summit is a military compound that is not accessible. There... More
