Pls kindly remove Pulai waterfalls fr Google or Trip Advisor. the place is already closed due to landslide, it's so run down and dirty and there are still people praising the place. I took my Australian friends there on 7/8/13 coz they saw it in Google and wanted to visited. We were supposed. To have a picnic there but was so ashamed of the place. tiny bit of the waterfall there, many monkeys and dirty. No place for a picnic!

It is not so easy for foreigner or people who don't have their own transport to go there. Nearest town nearby is Kulai. It took you round 10 mins drive from highway of Kulai exit. Upon reaching, you can see the main gate is closed but you can walk up there no worry.

The amazing about rain forest is you can come here anytime as it is not hot anyway in the forest. However, if you plan to walk to the top and come before night fall please be here latest by 5pm. It took about 2.5 hours for slow pace walking speed up and down (4.5km), assuming about 1.30 hour reach the hill top and 1 hour back. The road is nicely built so you will not have any problem walk up there. If you plan to go to the water fall only it is just 10-15 mins away from the main gate.

Along the road, I have seen 2 different types of monkeys, birds and etc. That is wonderful experience. However, I am so pissed of people throw rubbish there. Especially at the waterfall area a lot of rubbish. However, I have seen a family with young children pick up the rubbish along the road, 2 thumb up for them and I shall be the same with them next time if I go Gunung Pulai. Shame on those people throw rubbish there selfish and stupid!

On the top you can't have a full view because it is a army base. However, about 5 mins before reaching the top you can have a good viewpoint.

Definitely come again and hope everybody protect our nature resources. Don't throw rubbish please.

Desperate for a walk I finally located this from a blog site. It's a bit tricky to find, & when you do, the main gate is locked (tragic accident involving some kids a few years ago, apparently). Undeterred, everyone goes round the gate, and either just walks a couple of hundred meters to the falls, or does the full, Fairly arduous 5km to the nearly-summit (actual summit has tv/ cell phone mast, and closed to public:-(. Views & sense of achievement still worth it though!) paved road the whole way.

It is great to be in the jungle, some good wildlife seen, but gets busy on public holidays. And the place REALLY needs a clean up. The litter is horrifying- why do people just leave stuff?! If only the government would sort it out it could be amazing here.

Visited the Falls on a Friday morning. Upon arrival by car, you will see that the main gate is closed. After checking with the local residents, the only way to the falls is to walk up. We parked our car using the local resident compound, which cost RM1. If you have elderly people, it might be tough for them as the slope is steep. You will need about 20 ~ 30 mins to climb up to a y-intersection. We met one of the local resident who excerise every day, told us taking the left route will lead to the pool and continue walking on the right will lead to the top of falls and a army camp. We took the left route as our elderly people were tired. After walking downslope, I think we reached the first cascade with a nice pool. As it was raining season, there were not many people except a couple. The depth of the pool was about 1.5m. My kids loved to play in the pool as there is a rope hanged across by previous users. The nice thing about this falls is that there is no fishes unlike Kota Tinggi falls. Toilet for changing/bathing is available. Overall experience is great as this falls is free unlike Kota Tinggi which is too commercialise. We will definitely be back for a second time.
