Dara Falls is a lesser known waterfall that consist of 4 waterfalls within easy reach from a quiet residential garden. There is no official stream name, hence the name of the falls is adopted from previous visitors who visited the falls. The word "dara" means virgin in Malay language, but the reality is that this stream is far from being untouched and in its natural state. A single large diameter water pipe has been installed across every level of the waterfall which originates from a water catchment dam at Fall 4. Fall 1 has a wide waist deep pool with a sandy riverbed suitable even for younger visitors due to the gentle flow of the stream. There is also a small campsite by the riverbank. Suitable for beginners.
Head to Senawang town and proceed to Tmn Tunku Jaafar. Cross the bridge and take the exit to the Taman Sena / Sena Parc junction. (Image 1) Proceed along the quiet housing road till arriving close to the trail head.(Image 2) Opposite the houses there is a small empty clearing of land with plenty of parking spaces. Park without obstructing local residences access and passage.
To reach the upper levels of the fall there is a trail on the left side of the river. The trail is not as clear as few visitors venture this path. It ends at Fall 4 where the water catchment dam has been built. Visitors should watch out for loose debris from the water catchment dam that may be stuck between rocks that pose a dangerous hazard.(Image 3) Irresponsible visitors have also left their food container waste that further tarnish the beauty of the falls. Shards of glass from broken bottles and plastic waste is present at Fall 1.
