Jeram Perlus, one among many falls in the Hulu Langat area, is probably the nicest for those of us who like our forests without trash or tourists. Because it is not yet well known and takes a 2-3 hour hike to reach, you are likely to have this spot to yourself. The trail starts at a small Orang Asli village on a side road of the road to the Gabai falls.

The hike is long but moderate, with almost no steep climbs. The first time you go, get an orang asli guide from the small village since there are side tracks which could take you the wrong way. The trail starts on a motorcycle path used by orang asli when they go hunting. In parts of the jungle, the path is quite overgrown but always passable.

Nice mountain views

The falls itself is about 15-20 meters in height with a nice pool at the bottom. The guide dived into a small cave and came up with fish for dinner.

Leeches? Moderate number to many when it's wet.

Went there 8 April 2008. Took three hours to travel the 7 km to the falls, and 2.5 hours to return. Fish were in the pool. Campsite was more or less clean but campers had left garbage in the garbage bag.

How much is the fee payable to the Orang Asli to act as guide? Is there any specific person we need to approach at the village to request for a guide. Thanks in advance.

went there on 20 July 2008, after ask around the kampung folks for the direction...and really seems like not many ppl know about this place... eventually we found the orang asli kampung and 2 guides to lead us there. Really impressive waterfall! But somehow some ppl who camped there before left behind their rubbish!!! Pls take out whatever you bring in and preserve the cleanliness of the Jeram Perlus.

Hmmm,one can actually do fishing here?I hope the fish was set free after that.Even they deserve life besides the less fortunate people in this world!I remember this waterfall very well.First of all,we had to figure out where is this place since no one can figure out if it was spelt pelus,pilus or perlus etc.ha ha.Finally we found out that there is this guy from MSN named..oops sorry forgot your name,whom my friend know and so we tag along with him and his friends.We parked our car in the small orang asli village.Paid a fee for parking so that we return to c our car still there.ha ha.The awesome sight of the waterfall was enough to suppress our struggle with them leeches.ha ha,Not spoilt,just as it is in its natural surrounding,not polluted by THAT many people yet.Will go again if that goodlooking guy from MSN...wat s his name.. dun mind be the guide.
