The Chiling Falls are probably the most beautiful waterfalls of Selangor. They can be reached after an adventurous trek along the river, which has to be crossed many times. To reach the trail head, you take the road from Kuala Kubu Baru to the Gap. After passing the Selangor Dam, you cross the bridge on the Chiling river. Just after this bridge you can park you car. Follow the road for about 100 meter, the trail head is clearly indicated. Soon you will arrive an open field beside the river, with some buildings and a campsite, maintained by the Fisheries department.
The first river crossing is by means of a recently constructed suspension bridge. Strict rules have been introduced: after the bridge camping, fishing, making fires, etc is no more allowed. A good idea, in the past several fatal accidents have occured with flash-flooding. Hopefully the rangers will be able to maintain the place.
The trail is clear and follows the river, but you have to cross the river five more times. So you must be prepared to get wet feet and probably more... Kampung Adidas are very useful here. After rainfall the water level can reach until your waist and the current can be strong. Take care, especially with children.
After trekking for about one and a half hour, the river makes a right-turn and suddenly you will see the lower waterfall. A quite spectacular reward. It is a powerful fall with a large pool. Lots of fish, which like to nibble your feet..:-)
There are two more falls. You reach them, by scrambling up the steep slope, just before the last river crossing. You will pass another waterfall (not accessible) before you reach the third waterfall. This place is much quieter than the lower fall and very well suited for a relaxed picnic.
This is an interesting trek and a beautiful fall. But accidents have happened here, due to flash-flooding. Don't make this trip in adverse weather conditions! The river will become impassable when the water level is too high.
Access to the Chiling falls is limited for the time being (weeekends only), because of ongoing research by the Selangor fisheries department.

|Was there last Sat and the water level was quite high when we crossed the streams but it was manageable. Waterfall is beautiful but sad that many picnickers has littered the place :( Will go back for the other two falls :)|
|Make sure you go to the top waterfalls. There are three tiers in total|
|Trek Addict ||02-07-2012|
|Beautiful place. Went there for 2 consecutive weekends. First for trekking, then camping. Captivated by the fish and butterfly yet saddened by the receding water level,presence of rubbish and the act of humans in their contribution to pollution. Campers and hikers, kindly avoid throwing rubbish along the way. If you see some please carry one or two piece back to the big rubbish bin outside the area. Together we preserve. |
|This is an easy trek through the jungle but it takes about an hour. There are six river crossings including the bridge at the start. |
|koyamangen, I like your photos. I tried to leave a comment on your blog but dont understand Japanese. Can you contact me my email email@example.com Thanks.|
|Went there on Mar.10, 2012.
Quite adventurous trekking!!
I am Japanese who started living in KL from last Nov..

|Greetings folks... went to Chiling two saturdays ago,3rd November 2012. My second time. It was a leisurely hike just as i remembered from two years ago. untill we reached the river crossing bit la... as it rained the day night before, current was really strong and it was difficult to cross.. turned out to be quite a task to get everyone across(ours was a group of 10). Luckily, bumped into some other hikers and we helped each other especially to get the ladies across. And it got really really difficult to cross at the upper fall. Plus it was drizzling heavy on our way back. Strongly recommend to bring rope; about 50m length or more.|

|salam...sy bercadang ingin membuat trip perkhemahan ke sg. chiling...boleh bg information brape bayaran yg dikenakan & lokasi berkhemah yg dibenarkan pd awal 2012...
|I have been in Malaysia for almost 2 years and this is one of the best things I have done. Easy to find, I started out early and watched the sun rise over the Selangor dam before starting the trek at 07:30. The gate was open so I just headed on up. The crossings were fun and I reached the top of the 2nd fall in just over an hour. Could not quite work out how to get to the 3rd fall without swimming upstream! Had the pool at the bottom all to myself. Fantastic! Only downside was a wasps nest by the pool. When I came out from swimming my bag was swarming with them. Could the rangers do anything about this?|
|do i have to book or pay anything for having picnic here this sunday???|
|Hi, hope to camp at Chiling fall. Can I do it without a guide? Any rules or restriction that I have to follow?|

|hye..just wondering if we want to go to this waterfall, do WE MUST contact the ranger there?is there any fees/charger??thanks...|
|2010-09-19 - Overall of the waterfall is nice, the bad side is when u driving on the way to Chiling from KL, once yuo goes up hill towards frazer hill, you have to extra careful, it was hard to see the signboard that lead into chiling on your right hand side, we end up reach Frazer hill.. then turn back = =", 2nd is when crossing river, i forget how many crossing site it have, but we skipped few of it because dun we cant see the crossing sign board.. :p
to answer yjnull, i dun think there is other changing place beside the check-in toilet.. haha|
|May I know there got any cloth changing place near the waterfall?|
|Guys! Please be noted if you gona hit chilling falls for camping or or trekking... make sure u book first and GIVE THEM A CALL! coz i went all the way there just to be told by the ranger(indian guy) no camping is allowed on after 6 on sundays =(...only friday till sundays b4 6 of course is allowed.
GIVE THEM CALL FIRST if not u will end up going all the way there for nothing like i did.
this is the man in charge there(indian guy) and the number given on the site with the name Safar, u can just ignore it, instead dial up the above numbers.
Better to be safe then to be sorry.
A disappointed Camper who traveled all the way fr KL but only to be turn down by ranger there.

|Is January a good time to visit the fall ? I am worried the the fast river flow would make crossings impossible. |

|Fun trek. Nice reward at the end of the trek.|
|I just returned from Sg. Chiling Waterfall. Completed nearly 2.5km adventurous trek and crossed six rivers to reached the waterfall.
Feel free to check out my photo blog and travelogue to read all about my journey to the waterfall and also view some nice DSLR pictures.

|Anyone have the Chiling Falls Ranger Office number or something that i can contact regarding about this Chiling Falls? Please e-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Was there last weekend,and Celcom have service at the entrance, but not at the falls. SMS should work well when there are some connection along the path.|
|hi guys, we are planning to go chilling falls on 12th July 2009. but we wonder is there any coverage for celcom, digi and maxis when reach the falls? anyone can help with this info? |
|I am planning to have a picnic with my friends at chiling on the coming wednesday. Does anyone knows whether BBQ is available at there? Do we need to pay any deposit? Please reply to my mail email@example.com ... thankyou|
|was there @ 24/May. first time there, took a wrong turn after crossing the bridge thus ended hiking up a small hill and wasted about an hour. but it was fun warm up. tracked back, then reach the fall about an hour later. place was clean, nice and safe...|
|Been there just yesterday. Very nice powerful drop and relatively few people. I guess people are put of by the long trek inwards. Though nice & clean this waterfall ranks about mid in my list cause the pool is just too shallow for a swim. Nothing better than a good swim after a long trek. In this sense there are quite a few waterfalls better than this one.|
|i just go on march 28..very disapointed after we came from far away
the person who incharge there told us that there is no more camping space for us(6person only)even though there is still alot of space empty..we have ask them there still have place but y we canot camping here then they told us(important notice)we have to call to booking the campsite 1st b4 we go there n the empty space is reserved 4 the people that have book earlier n that time is 5 o clock we arrived there..im very disapointed even more bcos the person incharge never try to help us and told us if we want to come next time we have to book 1st..i wonder if some tourist from other country come without booking how they going to do????and if for some tracker n camper that like nature environment is not too suitable(me as well) 4 u bcos there we have electicity,toilet and bathroom(just like camping at ur house backyard)..so for me no more next time to go there is not bcos the waterfalls no good is bcos that place is not so nature anymore n too commercial n 1st place the person incharge there!!!so what happen to us,we go away with disapointed HOPE..lucky we know nearby there is a moutain that have very good camp site|
|I have plan to go on march for 1st time but not sure there can camping or not n which fall hav camp site n which is the best? important thing is there any deposit or charges for camp there? can any1 give me some guide? plz TQ|
|Hi John Byles! Great to hear from someone from that era. U will be please to hear that the buildings are relatively intact & I guess the building which the cinema situated is still standing! If I visit Kuala Kubu Baru, will take the photos for your perusal. Meanwhile, what is your e-mail? Will be fantastic to hear your exploits in British Malaya!|
|anyone knows the distance and how long it takes to get to the falls from the trailhead. estimated hike time for novices please. im planning to take a group of friends here and any logs or maps would be greatly appreciated. pls email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|am planning to camp at chiling
does anyone knows if they still allowed campers there?
and do we need to pay deposit whatsoever?|
|John Byles ||01-01-2009|
|Having been stationed in KKB and visited the waterfalls many times for a swim on our way to Fraser Hill, all of this was from 1953 to 55. I wonder whether the cinema built in 1953 is still there. I is also nice to see the views of the streets in KKB, brings back good memories.|
|Visited Chiling Falls last saturday (13 Dec). No deposit required, only a one time fee of 50 cent for washroom usage. A beautiful falls and as the name suggested, the water is really quite chilling. A headup for first timer without guide, the map at the entrance is not 100% accurate and might confuse you. Heres a few tips; Once you crossed the hanging bridge, you will see a cross junction. Turn to your left, the path that look like a small stream is actually the trail. You will see white ribbon along the way, most of the trail is along the river. The first two third of the trail is on flat land, do not cross the river until you see crossing sign. Thats it, the rest of the trail is pretty clear.|
|Just came back from a trip here today (6 Dec 2008). We were not required to pay a deposit of RM50 upon entering the reserve. All we did pay was 50 sen (RM0.50) per person for whole day usage of the restroom facilities (which is very clean). Water current and flow fairly strong today (probably because it rained the last couple of days). The water was clearer than the last time i visited in May 2008, we saw fishes :) Well worth the visit and hike|
|went there few years ago before they develop and put all the signboard along the river as you need to discover your own way to reach the waterfall. there is another waterfall on the higher which is way nicer than the one showing in the picture.
well, went there again 4 months ago and the place became -not-so-nice- as after the flash flood in the early of the year.
anyhow, its worth to pay a visit to KKB :)|
|ello guys... i went to chillin falls last april... the facilities r great..u need to pay RM50 for deposit...the place is very clean..there r renjer who wll jaga u all if u need anything..for who got asthma pls bring ur inhealer!!! anyone who want 2 see my pics @ chilling falls do add me @ MSN : email@example.com (dont add me in ym)
chilling falls rawK~ |
|Great photos, thanks for sharing. I will definitely visit there one day. Meantime, if anyone of you want some trek information in Cameron Highland, maybe my blog is able to help. (www.walknature.blogspot.com) Cheers !|
|Anyone please guide us to chiling fall plz... |
|hi everyone, iam planning to organize a Disaster Relief and Rescue Operation Camp. The estimation for participants will be around 50+ people. The camp will include mask cooking, disaster training and simulation, camp fire etc. Is this place suitable for this kind of camp? Anyone can help or anyone have the contact? thanks thanks.|
|Does anyone know that is camping still allow at chiling ??|
|Went there yesterday, nice clean place and yes the water was not clear, but it wasnt mud either but I was told that i was like that coz i rained the previous day. The water was fast and strong, not like those shown in this page (again prob coz of the rain). Went there with my cousin and IMO I dont think a guide is needed (though we did make a wrong turn once but no biggie),but crossing the river during strong currents is harder with only two people. We meet other groups there and we indirectly joined them and everybody helped everybody with the crossings.
We missed the upper falls, and will prob plan another trip there just to get up there.
Tips: during river crossing a stick or rope a cross the river really helps.
Also the place is REALLY clean. KEEP IT THAT WAY. Dont be an A$$ and dirty the place by leaving your garbage around.
For everybody else, i think the website here is stating the falls coordinates, here are the the coordinates to the parks nearest area for car park: N: 3Deg 35.577Min S: 101Deg 44.115Min|

|Guys anyone been to chiling lately, is the water still murky? can give us some updats? thank you.|
|Check out the pictures of Chiling Falls here.
|I was exploring the websites for a day trip with my family then found this site. I then decided to go to Kanching Falls. After my trip to Kanching, I fell in love with the waterfalls and make my second trip to Chiling Falls with a friend. OMG.......... Chiling is so beautiful.... U will want to even go again if u hav went. Thanks a lot to the creator of Waterfalls of Malaysia....
Anyone who like exploring falls and jungle trekking can contact me as well.. cos as u know... I will love to join if u guys dun mind bringing along a fat lady... hehehehe.... I can be contacted firstname.lastname@example.org.... and u may also add me in facebook email@example.com.
|My goodness!! My last visit to Chilling was about more than a year ago.. read from those recent comments that the water is no longer clear? I can still remember my 1st trip to chilling.. clear water, cooling, birds like whispering in my ears, and starring at the starry sky counting the shooting stars... I wonder if i could experience this again? But.. camping and making fire no longer allowed... that is a sad news for me.. I fall in love with camping because of chilling...|
|back from sg chilling and i must admit that it was never the same cos all i see was murky water-fishes not visible anymore.one good thing though,river crossing board were put up for easy direction but would be much appreciated if the same applies when we wanna trek out of the waterfall.|
|What ?? Logging activities around that area. As i know and notice there is protected forest...i think the "Authorities" who incharge had voice out the illegle logging subject to try take action, but the Higher-Authorities dont think that neccessary.... but only untill the "Last Tree" cutting down & the river become a Drain... and the day will come sure enough, should we just stay and wacth... |
|going to chilling this thursday.one of my fav waterfalls.btw,anyone here khows of a waterfall in gunung hitam,which is located in ulu langat,somewhere near gabai?actually anyone been there b4 and mind sharing?|
|Visited May 2008. The water is no longer clear, with silt kicking up and there were no fish nibbling at your feet for sure. Still an awesome sight nevertheless, upper fall is definitely worth the visit and much better spot to spend the day just chilling out/swim. River crossing very easy, the trek was not hard at all. Satelite photos of the area show mass logging activities. Something oughta be done before we lose spots like this in Malaysia.|
|Yes. I went there yesterday 26th April 2008, and was a bit disappointed, last time I went there the water was clear and you can see lot of fishes.
But yesterday, it was cloudy, and I can hardely see any fish. Also, sand was every where and spoilt the view a bit.
I am not sure why, but if it iss because of erosion due to logging, then the authorities must do something before we lost another nature gem in malaysia.|
|Harry Morianto ||21-04-2008|
|Went to Chiling waterfall on the 12/04. The pool was heavily silted, one can only swim near the end of the fall but the turbulence is kicking up sand and gravel. My hair, pants and even underwear is full of sand. The ranger told me that there are logging activities going on uphill that caused soil erosion. I hope something can be done to preserve the waterfall.|
|All u tourist local or foreign. Chiling Falls is a wonderful place. Its easily acessible if u follow the direction given of the website. Mr. Jan (website owner) did a wonderfull job with detailed map and direction.
So hiring so call guides is a waste of money and expensive too. Have a sense of adventure and DIY. U wouldnt get lost in Chiling. Maxis got line lah.|
|I went to the waterfalls with two mates in late Nov 07 and it was a great experience. Such a huge change from the hustle and bustle of the city. The trek was fantastic and the river crossings were challenging. Seeing the waterfall at the end of the trek was well worth it. This trek is highly recommended for those looking for a change from the bland greys of the urban jungles of Malaysia. It definitely was the highlight of our trip to Malaysia.|
|More Information and Pictures of my day with Happy Yen on his tour to Chiling Waterfall:
|melanie teoh ||04-02-2008|
|ChiLLing Waterfall was definitely a great trip with great experience. From Jungle tracking, to climbing, to crossing rivers, etc. It was definitely a great journey..Even better when we have Yen to help us out. Yen is a tour guide, whom has extensive knowledge about nature. He has taught and shown us many thing which we have never seen in our life.Before the waterfall, Yen brought us to the Selangor Damp!! the scenary was amazing..speechless.!!! The waTerfall was definitely amazing.I could call it "HEAVEN". After the Waterfall Yen brought us to the HotSPring..he taught us how to use our mind to control things..how to put our feet in a 44 degrees hot water, then our whole body..it was indeed a great experienced..Last but not least, Yen brought us to fill our stomach with seafood. The food was delicious!! So guys, check out Chilling waterfall. Contact Yen if you need help.|
|I can really recommend taking the tour with Yen. He is a really good guide and explains a lot along the jungle trek to the fall, but he also shares interesting things about the different religions (the tour also includes a visit a buddhist temple) and mental issues (challenge to keep your legs in a hot spring). At the end, we had some excellent seafood. His number is down here in the commands. Call him if you wanna have a really good day. Oh, the Chiling Fall is beautiful.

|LC, I'll be going to Lebok this week. Next destination~~~Chiling Falls again. That's still the best.|
|Hi! I was there recently with 5 foreign guest and it took us 2 hours ( due to high water level and for safety reasons we had to use ropes to cross the rivers) to reach the waterfall. I am a qualified nature guide approved by TDC to provide an educational and also a safe eco-tour. Call 017-3697831 or email me at email@example.com. Thank you.|
|Billy - when are u going to Lebok?
My frens and I planning to go Chiling Fall on 16.12.07. Any guides available?|
|hi guys..... after read a few comment from you all in here... me and other friends interested to camping at chiling waterfall. we decide to go on this christmas holiday. so i need your info for how to get there, do we need a permit for camping, do have to take a guide? please... tell me... thank you |
|Went to Chiling fall in September. Man, what a good place, you\'ll get addicted. The air is fresh, clear water, not polluted environment. You don\'t need to have much experience in jungle trekking to complete the walk, but go with a guide is recommended for first timer. I went there with KL Yen (mobile: +60173697831), friendly and knowledgeable guide, even brought us to a place with tasty food. I\'ll be going to Lebok waterfall with him again in Dec.|
|Dear Micheal, trekking into Chiling is easy. Very clear signboard all the way. One person alone also can. No need guide at all. I have been to many falls and Chiling is great.
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Michael Ooi ||12-10-2007|
|Hi, regarding getting a guide, where can i find one and how much does it cost? Also, is it advisable to go in a group or ok for just 2 persons to trek to the falls themselves?|
who can tell me that how do i get to there from KL?
need yours help so much....thanks!|
|yup its have many fish too..
but dont ever think to catch...
theres a coumpount by catching fish there...|
|Tony Sung ||10-09-2007|
|Just visited the Falls for the first time during the weekend of Sept 8, 2007. It was an easy trek of one hour and fifteen minutes but not for children below 12. Would be necessary to hire a guide for first timers as the river crossings can be a little tricky.
At the end of the trek, the sight of the falls is really worth the trip. The place is beautiful, serene and clean. Except for an occasional plastic wrapper, it is relatively free from the rubbish which you will find in the easily assessed waterfalls.
What's special about this place is that you are able to swim in a refreshingly cold pool with hundreds of fishes swarming around you. (No worries they don't bite)
For those who are planning a trip, please respect the environment and bring back everything that you have taken with you. There is a large garbage bin at the parking area after the steel bridge for you to deposit your rubbish.
Do enjoy your visit.|
Just for the info, started 2 months ago no campings activity allowed beyond the cable bridge. But there are a few good spot for camp at the Fishery Dept. Chalet (so called). Anyway... that's was a good step to preserve the untouched nature. But don't do it Half Way (Hangat2 Tahi Ayam...) Ok.. Cheers...|
|Dear Jan, went to Chiling again on 5/8/07. Can u tell me how to put some pictures into the achives ? TQ|
|Shahrul Tami ||09-08-2007|
|It's easy to go to the start point. Just go to KKB then follow route to Fraser Hill. The last time I went there (about in June 07), you'll find lots of Kelah fish on the way to the waterfall. It quite easy to go there, just follow the route. You'll find Fisheries Dept Signboard along the way and that confirm that you're in the right track.|
|leh tak bagi nombor contact utk saya tahu pasal tempat ni dgn lbh lanjut
|Dear Am. First of all i don,t have your e-mail address. Second, just follow the instruction and map. Its easy lah. |
|Sorry. How to go there from Bandar Baru bangi. Thanks|
|Hi moderator, kindly pls email to me instructions to go there (Sg Chiling)as soon as possible.i am very interested to go there|
At the 1st crossing, there is now a toilet,shelter,pedestrian bridge and u can camp here.After crossing the bridge, its everything no no. No fishing,camping,chopping wood for fire,littering. Don't think u can get away with it because there is rangers around with camera. Chilling must be protected cause its still prestine,fabulous.Visit Chilling if u r a diehard nature person. Take out your rubbish or don,t come at all. For more info, pls e-mail me at email@example.com
Chilling is paradise in Selangor.|
|Mad about Jungle ||04-05-2007|
I love Sg Chiling! It was a clear day and prior to the outing, there was no heavy downpour. The hiking wasn't tough at all as the place was relatively quite flat. The initial part of the trail was surrounded by a wall of ferns on both sides (nice!). We enjoyed the river crossings very much but a word of caution for those bringing very young children. In some parts, the river current can be strong or the water level is about 3 feet high. It would be helpful to bring along a rope (not raffia string!) for crossing. We also got to feed the fish using the fish pellets provided by the staff of the Fisheries Department (if they are around). After about an hour's hike, we finally reached the waterfall and it was a joyful sight to behold. Lovely place and I am looking forward to going back there again. |
Kami berada di sana pada 12/07/2007.Pengalaman jungle treking kami yang pertama bersama 4 org anak (11th-5th).Berbaloi,amat berbaloi sekali.Yang paling menakjubkan kami ialah ikan yang amat banyak,makan di tangan dan anak-anak kami mandi dikeliling ikan-ikan.Airnya bersih dan jernih...hutannya bersih dari sampah.Kami pasti akan kembali lagi..|

|Hi there, I just met a guide in an outdoor adventure shop and after talking to him and seeing some photos I am going to get a group of friends together and book him up as a guide for this 'Chiling waterfall'. I think it would be worth it from a safety and knowledge point of view, he was also very genuine and a really nice guy.His name on his card is KL Yen tel +60173697831, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

|me, mygf n 7 of our fren just went there on 17-19th Feb. unfortunately is raining heavily that 2 days. we have to wait nearly 2 hours to cross the 2nd river crossing which the water is about 1.20 meter high, with pretty strong current. Went up at 1pm reach the campsite at nearly 7pm. We only able to go to the waterfall on the 3rd day bcoz of the rain, but pheww... it is all worthwhile, the waterfall is spectacular. ps: 20m rope n clear weather would b usefull.|
|Grace Wah ||14-02-2007|
|My friends & I are interested in making a trip to the Chilling Waterfall. Some people told us we need a guide but we find some of the rates a bit too expensive. We recently had a bad experience with some guide who charged us for nothing (we could have easily found our way in & out without him)! But from some of the comments here, it seems that we don\'t really need a guide but then this may only be applicable to the seasoned trekkers. I wonder if anyone out there who could dispense some good advice to us. Of course, if we can save the guide fee, that would be great but if you think we really need one for our safety, let us know and perhaps, recommend us a decent guide. I am contactable at 016-3166360. Thanks! :-)|
|Have been there many times during the last 15 years. On 09/02/07, I took a friend from Netherland and he was very happy to enjoy the crystal clear waters. There are plenty of fishes but you are not allowed to catch it. I provide personal and transport services to interested foreign vistors. Call 017-3697831 or email@example.com|
|Chilling Falls was a very unique and exciting waterfall and the whole 1 hour walk crossing the same river 5 times was a worthy one. I'll definitely will come again!!! Highly recommended!|
|Made the trip with my family on 1st day of Raya. The river crossing was hard as the current was swift and there were plenty of small rocks. We were lucky because we met 2 groups of guys, one of whom had a rope. The rope helped a whole lot. If you dont have a rope, then form a human chain.
The trails are clear but there are plenty of them. Just stay as close to the river as possible. Just before reaching the waterfall, there is a small "cave" formed by two huge rocks. Thats quite an experience to pass it. Have some bats nesting there too.
The waterfall is beautiful!. Worth every effort to go. We didnt stay very long though as the skies was getting dark. Would definetly go again during the dry season.
Lastly, this is a GREAT informative site. Keep up the good work!. |
|Has been there many times but be very careful of sudden flash flood. Always on the look out for dark clouds upstream as it may be raining a couple Km away but surely the waterfall will be very strong and bring flashflood. Be sure to look out for unusual sight on the water like foam and slight muddiness in the water. If you ever see this occurs, please move to higher ground immediately and away from this fall. |
|First went there way back in 1993.. fell in love with it eversince.. the trainers in Pusat Latihan KKB called it Johnny Walker Waterfall (Dunno for what reason..!?!).. The last time i went there was in 2002.. still one of the best waterfall I've been..|
|went to chiling few years. what a wonderful place to relax n enjoy the view. i would never the site as i was drown at the 1st pool up the hill. but |
|These falls are definitely worth a visit. The track is clear and a nice gentle stroll with some fun river crossings. The pool below the bottom fall provides a welcome dip.
The track to the upper falls runs off to the right of the river just before the falls. The trail follows the ridge up past the top of the bottom fall, a lovely view down and on to the upper falls. Well worth the climb which is not too taxing.
Try coming down the river from the bottom of the falls with the current, a sort of mini-canyoning. It does get a bit bumpy as the water gets shallower when the river widens out; fun non the less!
An excellent site and I'll definitely try more falls as time permits.|
|I last visited the waterfalls back in 1996. Brought my cousin and fellow kampung frens in a Perodua Rusa up to a clearing right before 1st river crossing. Those days, 4WD could reached almost to the campsite while normal car could reach the clearing before 1st river crossing.
Last 2 months, decided to gather some fellow 4WD owners to the waterfalls. I was shocked that the trail is no longer there. Only hiker's trail left. Even the 1st clearing was not accessible by car anymore. Dunno what the waterfalls and campsite area look like anymore.|
|Chiling is indeed a good place to build up the love for nature. Short trek along the river and found your reward waiting! Relatively close to KL, but still amazingly unspoilt. I even saw some people kayak from the bridge down to the dam! Some pictures update here: http://yellow0eye.blogspot.com/2005/12/chiling-waterfalls.html Cheers!|
|Flash flood is a tame definition. Torrent is the more appropriate word as it will come all of a sudden. Some years ago, a few campers in a group got sweeped away from their riverbank campsite by the sudden torrent and drowned in their sleep. Be mindful that sometimes heavy torrent give you very time to run to safety in Sungai Chiling area.|
|The picnic area mentioned by you is gone for good as the stretch has now been totally submerged by the dam.
Flash flood occurs when it rains upstream, deep in the forest, that is. When stretches of the green mountain views from afar turn pale green, get ready to move out of the river and the river bank as the flash flood may come in seconds without warning to the untrained eyes.
From a hometown boy|
|Flash floods rushing down from the upper reaches of the river can be very dangerous. Visitors and picnikers need to be alert to signs of flash floods especially when it rains in the hilly parts.
