A Popular Weekend Destination

The Puteri Fall is named after this legendary Princess. The fall is located on the lower slopes of the mountain which are easily accessible by a cemented walkway.
They attract a big crowd, especially during weekends.

The Puteri Fall

The Puteri Fall itself is more a cascade, about 60 m tall.
As the cascade is curved, it is not really possible to get a complete view of it.
Not spectacular, but an attractive place to spend a lazy Sunday.

At the top of the cascade there is another small fall, with a nice swimmingpool.
Don't expect to be alone here during a weekend!
The cemented walkway ends here, and the real climbing of the mountains starts. There is another, smaller waterfall, along the trail to the top.
