AccessibilityFrom Carpark

The link road from Selayang to Ulu Yam has a number of numbered carparks. There is a nice river along the road, where many people come for a picknick and a bath, especially during weekends. On the other side of the road, at parking P3, a waterfall can be seen.

Park your car at this parking and cross the road.

The lower fall ends in a man-made pool

Some effort has been made to embellish the place.

A trail leads uphill on the left side of the fall. Within a short distance you are in the jungle, a strange contrast.

It is not a long scrable to the upper fall. The jungle is nice and we found beautiful ginger flowers during our visit.

Opposite of the small catchment (pool) according to the 2nd pic, there is another LOWER tier of the falls where there is also a concrete trail/stairway leading DOWNWARDS to a green-colored hanging bridge (be warned that HALF the stairway has been washed away and there is a diversion turning RIGHT through a short jungle walk that can lead to the concrete walkway and the green hanging bridge and eventually the lower tier of the P3 falls where there is also toilet/washroom facilities - sorry NO pics as yet as I only went there for a RECCE)

Went there back in February 2010. The park were still quite well maintained minus the part where people keep littering around=.= For more pictures and my review, do check out my blog post about this waterfall at http://kenjunz-life.blogspot.com/2010/04/sungai-tua-waterfall-ulu-yam-10th-feb.html

I have been to P2 a few times. Have not try P3. Anyway P2 is suitable for families as it is a stream not a waterfall. Quite shallow so no worries if you are bringing kids along. The trek is also very easy.
