The Tembakah Waterfalls are probably the most impressive falls of Terengganu. The Hutan Lipur Lata Tembakah is clearly signposted and can be reached from Jertih. Coming from K. Terengganu a shortcut is possible by taking the T142 near Kg Jabi
This is the sign you will see, when you come from K. Terengganu
The park is well maintained with many facilities
A timetable gives time and distance to the falls, but it is not very accurate
The first waterfalls are actually more like cascades. They have nice, large pools, which make them perfect for family outings. Not surprisingly, this park can be crowded!
The trees along the trail are marked with their names.
The first cascade
Some of the cascades can be used as (bumpy) slides.
Our visit took place on a weekday, so at first we were surprised by the number of visitors. Then it became clear that nearby Kelantan was celebrating the sultan's holiday!
When you follow the trail along the river, you reach the main fall of the park. It is number 4 of the list.
The nr 4 waterfall is very impressive
It is a tall fall with an estimated altitude of 80 meters
From this fall you can continue to the upper falls.
To reach the upper falls, there are two possibities. First, you can choose the jungle trail, which is clearly signposted. The other way is to scramble upwards at the right side of the main fall. Interesting but not easy.

At the top of the main fall. Deep down the crowd of visitors is visible.
After the main fall there are some quiet stretches
The upper falls are also very impressive and as it takes some effort to reach them, they will be quiet even when there is a crowd.
Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety
