A Quiet Beautiful Drop

When people are using the Karak Highway, not many of them realise that there is a nice waterfall located along the highway, not far from KL. It is even possible to park the car at a lay-by and walk from there in 15 minutes to the Pisang Fall. However, you will then miss the experience of an adventurous river crossing and a nice jungle trek.

For this nice adventure trek you start from the old Gombak Road to Genting. At km 11 you will find a signboard to the Jungle Lodge, where you can park your car. Follow the road until the fence of the Pumphouse. Enter trough the small gate and ask permission to proceed to the waterfall.

Follow the trail along the Gombak River until you reach the Karak Highway high above you. The Sungei Pisang flows through twin tunnels underneath this highway. To reach the tunnel you first will have to cross the Gombak river. This can be a wet experience in the rainy season!

You can pass the tunnel by wading through the water or walking on the side ledges.

After the tunnel you follow the river for a few hundred meters until a confluence. This is nice forest (and leech country in the rainy season). At the confluence pick the small stream on the right. There is even a "roadsign" in red paint....

From here it is a 30 minute walk to the fall. Just keep following the river, there are trails on both riverbanks. After some distance a wider trail splits off to the left. It leaves the river and leads to the campsite at the top of the fall.

You follow a broad gorge now and at the end of it the beautiful 20 meter drop greets you and invites you for a refreshing swim. You can even hide behind the falling water!
On your way back you will find a steep trail to your left climbing up the gorge. It leads to the top of the fall (nice view!) and a campsite, which can be crowded on weekends.

Just went to camping for 1 night at this place last month and yesterday. Can say that the amount of garbage is getting more even after we clean up during last camping. Ketchup bottles/beer cans/polystyrene(those thing that wont decompose by it self!). Please preserve the beauty :(

Been this waterfall 1 week back.. awesome place to go. can get a massage and relaxation at the fall below, if you hike up, there is a pool for swimming and diving. the jungle trekking was fun as well.. overall good adventure/perfect day out. waterfall is taken care is nature/untouched. there is leeches just bring along salt/fire.

ayieshield21 < nak selamat parking dekat area pumphouse tu. tapi kena la jalan tracking sikit. Kalau nak senang kena ambil risiko parking dekat tepi highway tu. Air terjun ni terjaga lagi sebab tak ramai orang sanggup jalan nak masuk. (tu pun dah start ada sampah gak, jagalah keindahan alam :P) Another video! ------------------------------------ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYdLr4BAUjo

Access through the Syabas pump house is no longer available. Cross the river near the dam and trek feet dry till you reach the twin culverts. Be aware that the popular pool situated on top of the falls near the camp sites has grown quite deep. Exercise caution when swimming. To climb the falls without proper equipment would be plain stupid as it is slippery. Rubbish left by campers are still a slight problem.

Hi all...juz went there last weekend wit a bunch of frens. Relatively easy hike to the waterfall from juz before the pump house. The fall was a beautiful sight and the pool was nice for dipping. I think this is the best fall yet for us; but we have yet to explore Chilling Falls. I hiked up a little further and there was another small fall with a deep pool. According to the Pakcik selling apam balik by the river (he also collects herbs and roots in the junglet) here are more falls if you keep trekking on but its rather dangerous for novices. Overall experience- Superb

Divemuster, i fell so touch, where we still found some nature lover like you who tried to keep water- fall area clean. Yes, After "50 year of Gemilang" celebration, still many Malaysian do not know the use of Rubbish-Dum. As a "Malaysian' I felt "SHAME" also when i face to face with foriegn Visitor near water-fall. But we should show the Right Example like clean-up the rubbish even it's not belong to us. Those who still can "think" will see & learn. it's not an easy job, but i believe in 'power of one'.... God Bless!

No longer need to go through the pump house. There is a path down to the river before the gate and can cross the river to the trail from there. We trekked in via the river route and out via the "highway". Both have their distinctive attractions. Its a shame that some Malaysians are not civic minded and leave their garbage strewn all over the waterfall area. "Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos."

another easier access is by walking along Karak... but that would spoil the adventure spirit
