Harau valley is very nature by the cool athmosphere and surrounded by farmland, forest and high clift. It is very good place for cycling, thinking, camping and seeking butterfly.

A wonderful place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Wander through the valley surrounded by sheer cliffs a couple of hundred metres high, past quiet paddy fields and impressive waterfalls.

I and my family have visited this place on the wrong time. We couldn't enjoy the waterfall due to dry season. I suggest you to come to this place around October-February. You have to camp there.
