The Ulu Langat region, the backyard of KL, is well known for its many waterfalls. The most popular are the Gabai falls, but there are many more. To visit the Lawing falls you go to Kg Hulu Langat and follow the signboards to the Gabai falls. Do not take the exit to Gabai, but continue a few km until the small Kg Sg Lui where you turn left. rnAfter about 500 m you turn left again, near a fish pond. Follow this road until the end, near a bridge.

End of the road

Park your car and follow a clear trail until an isolated Orang Asli house. Turn left, there are a few vague trails, you must try to come closer to the stream. It will take about one hour from the bridge until the falls. You will pass a few nice cascades on your way.

After a while the trail follows the river

The Lawing falls consist of a few tiers. The main fall has a nice pool. The surroundings are pristine and unspoiled. Keep it that way!

Update June 2015

rnSeveral visitors have commented that they could not find the waterfall.
Here are some more directions.

The orang asli house (coordinates N03 9.61' E101 55.73') is only inhabited during the durian season. During that period, to collect the fallen durians, the undergrowth is cleared and the trail becomes visible. Outside the season, the trail may be overgrown until you reach the jungle, after about 200 meter. Approximate coordinates N03 9.73' E101 55.66'. Once in the jungle, the trail is clearer, no need to cross the river.

In the two pics below the ^ sign shows how to go on from the hut.

The falls are still pristine. We found an upper fall, but access is difficult, slippery boulders.
