Asahan is a small village in Jasin, Melaka. One of the Gunung Ledang hiking trails known as the Asahan Trail starts near the Lubuk Kedondong waterworks, Asahan, at the north west side of Gunung Ledang.

The calm morning scenery before people jam the stream!

Most of the terrain is quite gentle, except for some detours where tree have been fallen.

After 1 hour trekking, you reach the Asahan Fall. The volume of water is a bit low, and the water flowing down always remains in contact with the bedrock. The water pool here is small but deep. Water has a brownish colour, just like dipping in a bowl of tea.
