Unspoilt waterfall near Kuala Kangsar

About 25 km from Kuala Kangsar, on the new road to Gerik, a signboard directs you to the Perahu waterfall. Follow the small tar road until its end, about 1 km and park your car there. From here a trail of about 500 meter leads to the waterfall.

The waterfall is located in pristine surroundings. It is not a particularly tall fall, but it has an attractive classical 'horse-tail' shape and the water flow is substantial. A big pool invites to a relaxing bath.
