The so-called 'Templer Park' is located in a small valley, 2 km long and just north of the Kuala Lumpurís city boundaries. The entry cannot be missed as the park is located beside the busy trunk road to Ipoh. There are numerous picnic areas along the two streams and you will find visitors almost anytime. From the carpark a road leads to a nice swimming pool and there you will find a signboard to the waterfall

From the carpark a road leads to a well maintained swimmingpool. Here starts the track to the fall

The track follows the stream after passing a small water catchment area

The track to the waterfall is a nice pleasure walk, almost level, crossing the stream several times.

After about 1 km you will hear and see the first waterfall, a nice cascade

Some of the shelters along the trail could do with some repairs

The final cascades are quite tall and at the top there are a few nice bathtub like pools, perfect for a relaxing bath.

There are a few campsites here, but the trail stops. It should be possible to follow the river further upstream.

The Kanching Falls, a few km north, are more spectacular, but these cascades are a suitable destination for young and old. Good birding possibilities too.

Waterfalls can be dangerous ! Always take care about your safety

The place is not too bad eventhough got some rubbish, it is only at the picnic spot. Other places, still quite clean. There were a few Indians there, but they dont disturb you. What I disliked however was there were some empty whisky bottles around the area. Also there are leeches, no I am not referring to the BN politicians. So come prepared with socks/repellent.

Too much rubbish strewn especially around the shelters and campsite areas. This has been a VERY IRRESPONSIBLE and IGNORANT act of trekkers and campers lately....but the trek and surroundings are OK though...

Just made my a visit to Templers Park last week after ten years. The pool area is nicely done despite the lack of lots of shelters for the crowd. The trail to the waterfall is good and it was a quiet and relaxing jungle walk. A few campers the falls. I did not take the trail loop from atop the falls back to the pool area. Next time. A very nice day outing for the family when there are no crowds.

Hi semua, i pergi berkelah dengan keluarga i pada 1/10/2008 di templer park. Keadan di sana cukup melegakan saya. kami semua gembira di sana cukup cukup tidak dapat gambarkan perasan saya. kedalaman air pun tidak dalam dan sesuai untuk semua golongan.tetapi i tidak terima kelakuan sekumpulan kawan lelaki yang cuba mengambil kesempatan untuk minum minuman keras disitu. tidak membuatkan ramai yang tidak puas hati dengan kelakuan mereka.. cukup memalukan rakyat malaysia disebabkan ramai juga pengunjung luar negara disitu,..i tak salah buat gitu tetapi itu bukannya tempat yang sesuai untuk minuman itu.. cubalah bersikap rasoinal sikit.tetapi hanya memikirkan diri sendiri sahaja.. harap selepas ini tak akan berlaku lagi..~!!!
