Only a few people know that a couple of beautiful waterfalls can be found in the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. To reach them you have to take the Zoo Negara exit of the Ring Road. This is the region of Ulu Klang. After passing Kg Kemansah, the road ends at the Institut Budaya Baru Melayu.
About 100 meter before the guard house, there is an entry in the fence to an ATV track. Follow this track to the fall
The road ends at the Institut Budaya.
About hundred meter after the gate, take a clear trail to the right.
Parts of the traill are heavily eroded.
After following the trail for about 45 minutes, you will hear the sound of falling water. A small trail leads down to the Lower Ampang Fall, sometimes erroneously called Kemansah Fall

There are two more falls in the Ampang river, to reach them you need to do some river trekking.
A dam is a sign of water management in earlier days
The trekking is not so difficult
But it becomes gradually steeper
After about one hour you will hear the sound of rushing water adn you know that you have reached the Middle Ampang Fall.
A small fall with the Middle Fall in the background
The Middle Fall is quite impressive
This fall has not really a pool at the bottom
You have to scramble up the slopes to reach the Upper Fall, which actually is quite close to the Middle one.
The Upper Fall is a vertical one.
A perfect place for a bath
When you climb up to the left from this last fall, you will reach a trail on the ridge which will bring you back to the trail head
Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety
