Unspoilt waterfall near Kuala Kangsar

About 25 km from Kuala Kangsar, on the new road to Gerik, a signboard directs you to the Perahu waterfall. Follow the small tar road until its end, about 1 km and park your car there. From here a trail of about 500 meter leads to the waterfall.

You have to walk the last 500 meter

The waterfall is located in pristine surroundings. It is not a particularly tall fall, but it has an attractive classical 'horse-tail' shape and the water flow is substantial. A big pool invites to a relaxing bath.

unlucky. the scenery of this waterfalls already spoil by the timber activity nearest the waterfalls last year 09. but the nature of the waterfalls does not touch by the developer.deep in this jungle you can find another 6 waterfalls.actually it have 6 more up this hill, need local people guide.
