The picturesque kampung Janda Baik is located less than one hour away from metropolis KL. It is a popular destination for the townsfolk during weekends. Not many of them know that an attractive waterfall can be found in this region, up the slopes of Gunung Nuang. To go there, you take the highway exit to Janda Baik and drive all the way up the valley.
You will cross a bridge over the Sg Cemperoh
After about 15 km from the exit, the road becomes too bad for normal cars, and you will have to walk.
Follow the farmroad until the end, about 2 km.
To find the correct route, please study the GPS-map carefully. Where the farmroad ends and the jungle starts, look for a small trail to your left through the grass. The trail, although quite overgrown, is remarkably clear.
During our visit, there was quite a bad haze.
This is the end of the farmroad where the jungle trail starts
We were lucky to meet some workmen, who told us that the trail starts to the left
The jungle trail continues for another 1.5 km, gradually going uphill. We needed a parang, so progress was slow. Only at the end, we could hear the sound of rushing water.
Many parts of the trail were overgrown.
The after 40 minutes of hard work, we could scramble down to the stream
A beautiful ginger flower agains the background of falling water
The reward for all the hard work is a very nice powerful waterfall, in the middle of a pristine jungle.

Lunchtime before going back
The trail seemed to end here, and it is still far to the top of G. Nuang. We have given the fall the name Cemperoh Fall, there might be a local name for the fall. There might be even more falls in the region, still waiting to be discovered.
