Located about one hour from KL central, this wonder in the laps of nature is an essential for nature lovers traveling in and around the city. This place is relatively easy to find and although the lower waterfall and pools bustle with tourists and selfie warriors, the upper parts are relatively calm and serene. Having said that, it is quite... More

Nice place to be in for nature lovers. Bit of hill climb to reach the waterfall. The areas are well maintained and you might see up gradation work also. Great environment and picturesque view. Do not keep food items open with you as monkeys are nuisance. Also carry your water along there are shops at the entrance. Also good to... More

The hike to the highest waterfall took us 45 minutes and there was no one when we arrived at 8:45AM. It is a popular tourist area and the later it gets, the more crowded it becomes. Water is clear and there are dipping pools at several tiers as well as staircases that were constructed so the hike was easy, a... More

We were looking for another waterfall, but finally reach at Kanching Rainforest Waterfall. The waterfall is a small tracking (around 300 meter) away from the parking space and you have to climb up.There are 3 spots where you can enjoy the water and do picnic. There are lots of monkeys around so, stay careful.

The flow is very low, it has 7 levels, the first few levels is only occupied by public, if you go up then crowd will be very less. Just be aware of pick pocket. It is not hard to reach the top level. Level 4 or 5 that I can’t remember(which level that is ), which is very nice to... More

Most people go to Kanching and just see the bottom section of the waterfall. We hiked to the top of the seven tiers which was a really nice walk- uphill but only took around 45 mins. We swam at the top in the crystal clear pools and enjoyed the view. Great activity and cost nothing (except for parking). Beware of... More

Beautiful waterfall, close to KL, it's just a shame about the rubbish everywhere and the people! You have to pay an entrance fee of about 5-10 RM which is nothing, but no effort seems to have been taken to look after the place, as it's filthy. People complain about the monkeys but the people are far worse behaved - littering... More
