All commodities are there, chalets, food stalls, even a sign "no outside food allowed"!

Well maintained slides make the place look like a water park

As the waterfall (also known as Lombong fall) is so near to Singapore, it will be crowded on weekends and during school holidays.

A dam has been built in the stream to generate a big swimming and wading pool

The pools are shallow and safe for children

Finally, beyond the Waterfall View Cafe, the first cascades become visible

After the souvenir shops, the cafe and the crowds, the actual cascades and waterfall come as a pleasant surprise

What a perfect place for some meditation!

When you appreciate the isolated character of many Malaysian falls, you may be disappointed by the 'Sunway Lagoon' aspect of Kota Tinggi. But if you close your eyes for the crowds and the many "Don't do this" and "Don't do that" signs, it still can be a rewarding experience.
However the entrance fee should go down to the RM 2.50 it was until recently!

The top waterfall. Although the picture looks quiet, actually there is a big crowd around here.

Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety
