Lonely Fall in Ulu Langat

left click for larger picture

The access to the Lepok Fall is part of the fun.
Leaving KL and the traffic jams behind, the forest of Hulu Langat is a pleasant surprise. The small village of Hulu Langat is a good place for breakfast, before continuing to Pangsun.
Just before reaching this Kampung, turn left to Lepok. This small road ends after a few km at a place where you can park your car.
From here you cross a stream and start walking. This is a region of Durian orchards and bamboo forest

Pleasure walk in the forest

The trek is going uphill all the time but not in a strenuous way. Pleasant forest and ginger flowers abound here.
It will take about two hours to cover the 4 km to the fall, with a 350 meter gain in altitude.
Generally the track is clear, don't take the sidetracks which end in Durian farms
When you reach a disused water pipeline, you know that you are on the right way.

A beautiful waterfall

The track follows more or less the pipeline until a water catchment basin is reached.
From here it is not far to the waterfall

It is a very attractive waterfall, with a deep pool for swimming. In nice unspoiled jungle surroundings.
A perfect target for a daytrip

The trail ends here. If you want to reach the top of the fall, you will have to scramble up at the right side of the fall.

Just came back from Lepok last week, the trail slightly different from few years back. Less than 2 hours you will be able to reach the waterfall. Few junction to take note took wrong turn need to back track. Cleaniness wise much more better than last round when we there. The water is clear and cooling.

Just went there yesterday (Mar 5, 2016). Trail was clear. Took us about an hour hike into the forest. Couple of junctions that split into two paths but we just took the wider paths. The pipeline means you're on the right path. The waterfall is not that big but it is worth going to if you're willing to slide down. Sliding was the best part!

l start this comment with a giggle after reading Blu3hamm3r's write up. Seems that 2 years later, like him, the same thing happens to me ie. l got lost the same way as described by him. Best advise, go on the weekends where there's bound to be more people going and you can follow them. l almost gave up but as I found the main trail and was heading down l bumped into a group of 3 who were heading up So I tagged along. l am glad I did as this waterfall is one of the best l have visited in your site here, minus the rubbish that campers leave behind. To clarify some expectations, the sign at the entrance from the main road reads Lopo and not Lepok. To be fair, l am told that its an orang asli name that varies according to different people. In any case, expect to hike for 4.5 km along the path with the last 1.5 km being a little Steeper. Bring snacks and water, Otherwise refill at the falls where the water is fresh and icy cold. I am looking forward to go back again to visit the upper tiers.

Went to this falls again. This time manage to climb up to found out that there are 2nd and 3rd level of the falls. But look kinda deep and the current might drag you to the 2nd level. Some video of the slide and also the 2nd and 3rd level :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvkOnuffZsA

This fall is also called Lepoh Fall by some. The turn off from the road to Pangsun is tricky to find. Follow the signs for Asli Adventures Base Camp. Cross the wooden bridge at the start of the trail. It is easy to follow. After the Orang Asli houses there is a clearing where the ground is covered in roots. Take the trail on the right here. You will come to the pipe and a steep climb. The waterfall has a smallish pool with some fish in it and a great natural slide.

Beautiful place indeed. Clear water and fun with the slide. Seems like this place is getting popular. When we arrived at that place , bees and fly is still there. (due to garbage left by who camping there or local people). I really hope people can preserve its beauty.Some video :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B4erjrTsP4

Blu3hamm3r 11-04-2011
Went there last 2 week, get lost 2 times bcos no body come here before. It is easy to get lost when u reach the camp side, the right way is on the right upper side, but at 1st we only notice the left hand side trailer, follow the road till dead end then we follow the river walk another 1 hour...haiz....turn back and try other way again, finnaly we spend 4 hours to reach the actual lepok fall!! But it worth!! Very nice place for relaxing n picnic.

Went there in Nov 2010. A very nice hike and swim. The trailhead is just after the shacks and the adventure camp entrance, which will be on your left. You then cross a series of small bridges. The trail itself is almost entirely in a North-South alignment. You wont get lost if you have a compass. Why do people hike without a compass? There is a relatively steep ascent about 1 km before the falls, but it flattens out as you approach the falls. There were a number of fallen trees blocking the trail. You can just go over/under/around them. The final approach to the falls runs alongside the river for about 30 m. It is quite steep, and you will have to scramble up some boulders. Some parts may be slippery. The falls area is not very big; it cant hold more than about 25 people. There is a nice pool about 5 feet deep which is suitable for dipping and even a bit of swimming. Our total hike was about 7.55km. You should expect some leeches.

We have been there in May. It was very nice, the slope is easy to follow and there were a lot of people hiking to the falls. Unfortunately there was also a lot of trash.

Went here with my family last CNY long stretched holidays. The place is cool, taciturn & cosy ! Cheap chalet available as well. PONDOK SAKAHONENG - riverfront view (with electricity). 1 hr walk from here to Lepok waterfall. They can also arrange for orang asli guide for 1st timers. Tel : Hjh Rohana 012-3667410. Book early - weekend always full, we tried several times. GPS co-ordinate (estimate) : 03 13.47 , 101 51.58.

visit there 23dec08... parking fee is rm3 per car and rm1 per bike.. about 1 hour of trekking before you can see the fall...

Went there last weekend. The place was quite easy to find and no problem with the parking. I parked at a place marked "Parking" just a about 50 meters from where the trail starts and only cost rm2. The trail though is a bit harder to follow as I lot slightly lost at one point. After checking with my gps I back tracked and followed another trail which was the "proper" one. The water was clean and clear very happy with that. But the place is a little messy from the leaves and wood from the forest. I also did not make it up the top of the fall sadly, but an advise to anybody who do is to be very careful as its very steep and slippery. The waterfall though I prefer it to Chilling Falls, but sadly some A$$ hole campers left a mess of the place. Their "camp" was more like a garbage dump the way they left it. There was a used bar of soap and milo packets around the place. Not to mention the other garbage they left behind. Hope the get swapped away by the river next time they camp and make a mess of the forest. NO REMORSE. PS. Still a place to go.

senang je la alan nk g sg.congkak tuh!!~
Alan 01-11-2007
Dear Alicia. Where is Sg. Congkak ? Camping is camping so there shouldnt be any chalet or luxury. I would recommend Perting in Bentong for camping. Waterfall with a large pool and large white sandy beach good for 8 camps. Seclude and clean. The only thing u have to trek 1 hr. in. More inform pls email me. campmanalan@yahoo.com Regards Alan
eliciachong 27-10-2007

guys, haven't heard of asli gangster, but somebody has claimed to have been "auhtorised" to collect money for vehicle parking at the entrance of the place. these people are the same ones who erect huts and pollute the river running along the access road. What can we do about that, who are they? who can we report to? I have asked they couldn't show any notice from the authority. I guess the authority is corrupted as well!
Alan 23-08-2007
Dear bipat, sorry to hear about your incident with those asli gang. Maybe they are drunk. Anyway, lets form a gang and whack them back into the jungle. Period.
bipat 20-08-2007
Went there couple of times and had enjoyed the strenuous walk (and bees) while mapping with my gps BUT yesterday was a different story all together. We were harassed and extorted of money which we refused to give in by some orang asli men! They came stench of liquor breath and claim ancestral land fees as we had been using their rivers and lands. Another family of Indian origin nearby were also pestered to leave and so did we. As we were leaving, we saw the same family had their van surrounded by 6-7 orand asli. So we do have Orang Asli gangster too..... hmnnn so what are we going to do about that?
Alan 12-08-2007
Went to the falls today. Things have change. There is a bridge over the stream where u park your car. The bees are still there. Not much to say but CHILING is still much better.
TBS 17-07-2006
Visited on 16.7.2006. Remote and quiet. Relatively easy trek except for a short 5 minutes steep climb. Keep a lookout for leeches when resting on the boulders at the waterfall area.
jahd 18-04-2005
went there yesterday, easy climb but be wary of bees at the waterfall
adrian cheah 09-02-2005
