Batu Asah #3 Fall

Head to Zoo Negara as the landmark. Right after the Zoo Negara main entrance there is a road on the left going towards Kg. Kemensah. There is a number of chalets and water recreation spots in Kg. Kemensah. On weekends it can get pretty crowded and the access road is narrow. Park your vehicle once you have arrived at ATV Adventure Park KL without obstructing traffic. There are various parking spots and some will charge a parking fee.

There are various trail entrances (refer image below) but leads to the same trail. There are many trail junctions inside, keep right to reach the main fall series. On weekends the trail is heavily used by ATV tours and can be rather muddy during rainy seasons. Once you arrive at a rather wide clearing there will be a clear trail on the right going downslope to the falls.
