In the dry season there is not much water

The Perigi Falls consist of two falls/cascades. There is no clear trail up, but in the dry season it is safe to climb the rocks. Be careful, however, wet rocks are slippery

During the monsoon, this will be a real fall.

This is the only waterfall, as far as we know, with a view of the sea.

At the top of the first fall there are nice pools where you can take a bath.

What makes the Perigi Falls interesting is the splendid view of the sea and the rice fields of Kedah.

Then there is the second fall, more impressive than the first one

We found no way to climb up the second fall.
These falls will be much more impressive during the monsoon season
