The Slim river is a major tributary of the Bernam river, with its origins in the main Titiwangsa Range. It has a reputation for wild water rafting. And there is a waterfall, which can only be reached by a 4WD. To reach this waterfall, take the Slim River exit from the N-S highway and follow the signs to Kg Slim. From here follow the road to the desolate Ulu Slim Hot Springs. Here the tar road ends. Gradually the condition of the road becomes worse and a 4WD is needed.

Entering 4WD country

Not only the road conditions gets worse, also there is a confusing number of junctions and forks. Luckily every now and then you will meet Orang Asli who can show you the way to Kg Tibang. Because that is the Orang Asli kampung from where you can reach the waterfall.

Here the friendly Orang Asli told us that we were on the wrong track.

And now? How to go further?

In the kampung we met friendly Orang Asli, who were willing to guide us further. We could continue for a short distance by car, then we really had to walk and fight the many leeches.

The Tibang Fall

The Tibang fall is a vertical fall, not very tall, but unspoilt and peaceful. The falling water forms a nice pool, inviting for a swim. Not easy to reach this fall, but worth the effort

Just been there yesterday. It is a nice waterfall and I can say it is easy to access the location, the only thing is you need to ask Orang Asli to show the correct direction. Orang asli there is quite friendly. Talk to them and they will show you the direction. There are two orang asli settlement, one is located in the beginning of muddy road and the second one is inside the estate. If you go to the waterfall perhaps consider to buy some candy and give to local orang asli children. The waterfall as mentioned unspoilt but some visitors left plastic wrapping, we cleaned them up when we leaving anyway. I like the fall as very quiet and no one was there, totally peaceful.

Hi there... thank you very much for all your groups efforts to give infos for all of us to access the waterfalls of Malaysia. I never thought that I will ever try out jungle trekking. But I started with Kanching after visiting your site. then followed by Chiling... wow Chiling is great. I would appreciate if you could also indicate on the site on things to bring as each falls needs different things.. especially for first timers who does not have any experience. To access this waterfall...Any other alternative besides 4WD... kindly advise... And due to passion.. one of your reader actually started a group in Facebook to venture the waterfalls on your site.. for those that wants to find activity partners can also join this group... http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=33681666056http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=33681666056 Check out the activities...
