AccessibilityFrom Carpark

A beautiful mountain road cuts across the Bintang range from Lenggong in Perak to Selama in Kedah. This road gives access to two waterfalls. The Lata Puteh fall is not easy to access, but the Tebing Tinggi is just beside the road. A cemented footpath leads down to an area with some shelters, form which it is a short trek to the fall. Even during the weekend it will not be crowded here, as only locals know about this remote place.

Originally we had decided to name this fall Ijok, but the sign tells us it is the Sg Tebing Tinggi
