Hutan Lipur Lata Kekabu is a Recreational park in the vicinity of Chenderoh Lake. The road to the Park is less than a kilometer off the trunk road from Kuala Kangsar to Lenggong, Perak. Following a paved road, you will reach a large car park. From there, a short trail will lead you to the entrance.
The recreational Park is clearly signposted on the trunk road
A map of the park shows the location of the falls and the various recreational possibilities.
The park is well maintained
The river can be seen soon, there are picnic areas, sheds for resting and wooden chalets. Concrete walking paths are constructed for easy walking between the tall trees found in this area.
A solid bridge crosses the stream
The rivers flows quietly here
It offers many suitable places for bathing or a picnic
At the edge of this picnic area a 4 meters tall waterfall discharges water into a pool. Follow a walking trail on the left leads visitors upstream. You will cross over the river on a suspension bridge.
The first fall is not a big one, but very attractive
Fllow the path upstream
The suspension bridge has known better days. Take good care!
After going round a small hill, roughly a 300 meters walk, the main waterfall comes into view. Fairly dramatic though only 18 meters in height but about 40 meters wide. Plenty of cool, crystal clear water to fill a large pool of water. This is the focal point of the more adventurous picnickers.
Some of the trees are real giants
Through the foliage the upper fall comes into view
A second vertical waterfall can be seen in the background.
Officially the upper fall is out of bounds, as it is in a water catchment area. So you have to decide for yourself... It is possible to reach this fall, although care must be taken, the slopes can be slippery.

This is a very nice stopover when traveling to Gerik or the E-W highway. A picturesque park with plenty of picnic huts, a winding river, swim spots and nice lowland jungle. Take some food, your camera and enjoy a few hours off the road soaking in the rainforest.
just visit the waterfall this 06 cny. public can enter the upper waterfall easily now. coz the gate door is damaged by somebody. no need to bear the risk climb up the slippery slope.
