Telaga Tujuh or Seven Wells

This waterfall, situated near to Telaga Harbour is considered by many to be the most beautiful waterfall on Langkawi & has one of the legends of Langkawi associated with it. It is said that the wells, or pools at the very top of the falls are where Fairies come to bathe.

The waterfall 

Approaching from Pantai Kok you come to a small car park which has a RM2 charge for cars & RM1 for bikes, there are also a number of small shops here selling drinks, clothing & food. From here you can either take the steps on the right hand side of the shops or walk up the very steep incline of the service road to get to the steps that will take you down to the base of the waterfall itself, where the pools provide welcome relief for tired feet & kids love to splash about, but are sadly often filled with floating plastic bags, babies nappies, plastic bottles, dead beer cans, polystyrene takeaway boxes and broken bottles. There have been a few infrastructural improvements lately (april 2010) so if you are barefoot be careful of strewn nails and sharp bits of broken tiling that the builders didn't bother to clean up. 

The view 

For the more intrepid, you can tae the 638 steps through the rainforest to the top of the waterfall & will be rewarded by the beautiful views across to Burau Bay & Pantai Kok. This climb is fairly tiring so you may need to make use of the rest areas provided & just relax & listen to the sounds of the forest while you catch your breath. Once at the top the seven wells become apparent & you may even wish to bathe there yourself & use the natural rock slides which are suitable for kids of all ages.


From this stage there is a well marked & sign posted jungle path leading 990m further up the hillside but keep to the path as it is very easy to get disoriented.

Be careful to obey the warning signs as they are there for your safety several people have died here by being over adventurous (the latest an Italian man in early 2010).

On your return to the car park stop at the shops for a refreshing cold coconut, it’s really refreshing.
