ive been there on 16/11-17/11-2013 with few friends for day trip. please look to a abondon resort or a very big white block house to enter the resort. the end route is a small roundabout where u can park youre car there. there is a house of old man stay and u need to pay rm10 per car. im not sure if we can camping at the waterfall, but there are camping site nearby to the car park for the fee of rm12 per tent. go thru all the trekking with no marking at all but with a wide trakking pace. it tooks around 40mins to reach level 3 waterfall with 3-tier of it.its a nice spot and view to swim. please be aware of the slippery rocks and trakking route. leeches are normal, but, please put a better shoes as ther road are so slippery and to be fall are so easy.

Ideally... a CLEAR well written notice board should be put up for anyone planning to trek through a private land. Ideally, owner or persons working on behalf of the land owner should be courteous AND would be trekkers do the same too. Trekkers emplying local guides must also ensure that local guides REALLY do have the permission of the land owner. Better still, make your own trail like what my team and I do each time we come across access closed by land owner. And if land owners benefit from FREE supply of water from waterfalls into their land for agricultural purposes, perhaps they should return not judge silly prices for trekkers passing through their land towards the waterfalls. You received something free and very valuable from nature - why take advantage WAY TOO GREEDY MUCH from silly charges? Bersyukurlah and pray that every trekker will have a safe and enjoyable time and you may be rewarded with good harvests from the land you are working on using the very same water from the waterfalls!!! Trekkers should also seek verbal or written permission from the Janda Baik police post each time you want to make a trek into the nearby waterfalls. I wonder if the " elephantcamp " is still around...way back in the 1980s when we worked with GGK elements & the special branch in the persuit of armed communist guerilas crossing from Ulu Langat towards Frasers Hills??

i am the owner of the chalet that you all have to past trough whenever you want to visit tanpit waterfall. my name is jefri.h!p no 019 3470772. the reasons why i have to charge is the only road to reach the waterfall is trough my chalet area. Cars left at my chalet parking.I have limited parking space. Toilet olso used by trekker..who will clean and wash after used..? Rubbishs brought from the waterfall trown at the chalet area.. Thats y i have to charge whoever passing trough my chalet to the waterfall. If you find any exit can reach waterfall you can do so.I was the one who open the route up to tampit waterfall. My land is private property...i got right to chase anyone to protect my property..The waterwll is not belongs to me but the exit to reach the waterfall is trough my area. I was wandering why the persons who introduce tampit waterfall in this website never refer to me and ask the right way how to reach the waterfall. Any inquaries you can call me trough my mobile number above.

we had a really bad experience when trying to visit this waterfall. this was a couple of weeks ago (june 7). when we reached there - it is a really nice place btw - and parked our car, we ran into pak lang who was taking a few people up to the waterfall. he asked if we wanted to join them, but we said we had rather try on our own with the description from the web site. he said ok, go left. and that was all. then when we walked through the chatelets (we had parked outside on the road), we asked a man mowing a lawn for directions. he was really rude and said we had have to pay rm50 (there was 3 of us) to cross his land as he was the chatelet owner. we said we had spoken to pak lang and no such fee was mentioned and then just walked ahead. but he followed us and shouted we wld have to pay or leave. after a long argument and our refusal to pay, we left. we were really disappointed and shocked by his behavior - not only was there no way to see that he was indeed the owner nor is rm50 reasonable at all! we then reached pak lang on his mobile and even he then said sth like :oh guided tour is rm120" i forget the exact amount but it was quite high. anyhow, the place looks nice but i dont think we will try going there again since this was really upsetting! we r not 100% sure abt the owners name anymore but think it was jeffrey

If you visit this fall please be nice and ask permission from the chalet owner to park in the premises. Told by a local guide that the name of this fall is actually Lata Tampit. Any inquiries can ask Pak Lang at 0142906301.
