This place is suitable for the young kid to enjoy playing in the pools and also for the adult to enjoy the hot spring.

We stayed in the River lodge. OK, so the small water tank doesn't enable you to have a deep bath, but that didn't bother us. 2 great bedrooms, 2 enormous bathrooms, 3 sitting decks, 2 separate sittings areas, good air con and cable TV. Right next to river and entrance to the nature reserve. No internet but there is some at the resort restaurant (although not fast). Better wifi at Round Inn cafe near the car park (2min walk away).

Staff were very professional and friendly. Additional service offered to see Rafflesia flower if one is blooming nearby. A guide drove us less than 10 mins to see one on a local fruit farm. RM30 each is a bit steep but it's a rare opportunity and hopefully it encourages the locals to nurture these amazing flowers.

Poring basically has a lot of activities can be done. U can hike in Poring Hot Spring to reach the 2 waterfalls there. Kipungit waterfall can be reach out around 20 minutes from the entrance of the Poring Hot Spring and Lagganan Waterfall can be reach by 2-3 hours.

The view and the nature absolutely beautiful. The track consider moderate to difficult to some area but it's really worth it.

We can also climbed for a canopy walk in Poring Hot Spring with a very minimal payment and also payment for the camera or gadgets. The canopy walk is a great experience for those who is acrophobic or alto-phobic that want to challenge themselves on the high place. The trail going to the canopy walk quite easy with elevated small steps provided but it's quite challenging for those with knee problems and unfit for it. You need to climb around 500m towards the canopy walk and it took around 20. Consist of 5 canopy walk and each one around 175-200 Meters long and 41-43 Meters in height, which is higher than a 8-floor building.

The entrance to Poring Canopy Walkway is about 835 Meters away from park entrance. It is open from 9am to 4pm daily.

The walkway is an elastic structure, so it will bounce and swing when we walk on it. Some find this thrilling, while some think it’s scary!!!

i went with my baby boy, husband, in laws and my parents. the trail from entrance to the pool location is well kept, magnificient trees lining all way, fresh air, wood smell, a pleasant welcome for us. we chose the private pool there, costing rm15 to rm20 for 2hours (or was it 3hours? i cant remember). the 'pool' is quit small and not up to my expectation, it's made of pvc i think, with rusty water tap. i think the management can upgrade it to a better quality pool and tab.
The surau facility there is not muslimah friendly, as there is no covered ablution area and the surau smells funny.. That is another point they can look into too. Other than that, the strongest point of this place is the nature attractions, love the forest and thumbs up for everyone who kept it so well :))
