As a non malaysian, I paid 15RM to enter. Totally disappointed with the surrounding especially the bathrooms. Three bathrooms were choked and dirty. Two toilets door were broken. And the most shocking thing there's no lighting at all. Had to shower in the dimmed toilets with dirty floors. Yucks! Just give this place a miss.

I arrived there pretty early with my 11 year-old daughter - about 08:00, after leaving Singapore at 06:30. The first thing I noticed was that all the trash from the day before was still strewn around the place. The waterfalls (there's two) are ok, but it looks like there's more areas beyond the second one that are closed off. The... More

An ok place to visit if you are in Kota Tinggi. A refreshing stop just for the waterfall. Has an entry ticket for individuals as well as a vehicle. However it is thoroughly neglected Place so much in want of maintenance. We spent an hour or so, early in the morning so it was manageable once the people start coming... More

The pool with slide tube, water were extremely dirty & brown color. I'm truly scared to touch the water and feel like the pool for cows to swim. Toilet with algae, no worker taking... More

Visited with friends in the afternoon. Charged 50 RM for 3 adults + car. The hike was decent, but there was trash and garbage EVERYWHERE. Not only were locals leaving their garbage, but it looked like the place hadn't been cleaned in months. The lower area was ok for a swim, but don't waste your time.

This waterfall area falls under the greater Kota Tinggi waterfall resort. There are regular abseiling tours to the waterfalls (known as Pelepah waterfalls) which you can pre-book. Your hike to see the waterfalls will begin from the gate of the resort. Please be advised, this hike is not for the leisure loving. There are places where you will have to... More
