Sungei Perting Fall aka Lata Hammers
Access to this beautiful, unknown, waterfall is from the old Gombak-Bentong road. Coming from KL by the Karak highway, you take the exit to the village of Bukit Tinggi, where you can have breakfast. Then you follow the old road to Bentong for about 16 km. On your way you pass a nice unnamed waterfall and a Hot Springs.
From the junction a small road leads in about 3 km to the resort. The quality of this access road was reasonable during our visit. Should be possible with a normal car, although a 4WD might come in handy during the rainy season.
The trail is well maintained, at some places a bit overgrown. Follow it for another 2 km (half an hour). The river is always audible down in the ravine to your right. During our visit the location where you start the descent to the river, was indicated by an arrow, made of tree braches and twigs. Take care, this descent is very steep!
This waterfall is one of the most beautiful that can be found near KL. The water volume is high, even in the dry season and the pool is huge. There are several suitable campsites around.
A vague trail to the right of the fall leads to the upper fall, which is more modest, but also has a nice pool. Upstream the river becomes quiet.
This waterfall is a relatively unknown and therefore unspoilt gem, quite near KL.
Keep it that way! Take only pictures, leave only footprints.
Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety
