To reach the Pandan Fall, you must either follow the new highway to Kuantan until the end, then follow the signs to Sungei Lembeng and turn left at Panching where there is a signboard. Or follow the old highway, take the road to Panching. Halfway there is a junction for the waterfall. See the detailed map

A very picturesque waterfall

This is a well maintained and clean recreation park. There are good facilties, shelters, food stalls. A suspension bridge spans the river.

It is only a short walk from the car park to the beautiful waterfall.

Well visited

No wonder that this place is well visited, especially during weekends. During our visit the water volume was quite small, but you can imagine how different that will be in the rainy season!
The pool is very suitable for bathing and wading.

Climbing Up

It is possible to climb up at the left side of the fall. Be careful with slippery rocks at the top of the fall

To avoid accidents, the top of the fall has been fenced off. But the fence should be more solid .

At the top of the fall the stream continues in a very quiet way. Really one single fall!

Update May 2007

During a recent visit we noticed that a lot of landscaping had taken place.
And there was a lot more water this time,quite impressive

Was here on 29th May 2009.Reached around 2030hrs at night,gate was closed.Gate opening time is from 0830-1830.Came the next day and camp overnight,RM5 per person for overnight camping.Choose your own location.Waterfalls is very spectacular,trek up the falls to the top and venture for another 15mins of trekking.Was informed by the park manager that another falls await on top but 2 hours of trekking needed.This wont be the last,will definitely come back.

I went there after a trip from Cherating and it really sealed my holiday superbly! The waterfalls was truly magnificent and super fun for hydro shower! Very clean park with efficient facilities and for campers, I reckon there are plenty to do in the very large park. But the rocks was slippery and there were some daredevils climbing up the rocks. Not very smart.

I fell down this waterfall in the summer of 2004 and broke and dislocated my elbow, it was very traumatic. Ive been scowering the web ever since trying to find a photo of it, and it's good to see that people take a profound interest in wateralls, even if they haven't fallen down then, haha, thanks.
