The town of Papan, located south-west of Ipoh, was once a busy tin mining town in the Kinat valley. Now it is a scenic ghost town, famous for the memorial to Sybil Kathigasu, of WWII fame. When you follow the main street out of the town, you will find a sign for Hutan Lipur Papan. The road runs along a small river.

A nice stream

The difference between a cascade and a fall is not always so easy. Here it would be fair to say that there are several nice cascades. Only local people know about the place. Very suitable for a weekend picnic.
