Fabled falls in the Western hills
This fall can be reached by following the Pan-Island Highways to the more remote western side of the island. From the town of Balik Pulau heading north, the road goes uphill and meanders on the hills slopes. At one point, the road takes a sharp bend and at the same time passes a bridge neatly painted white.
This is where the river crosses the road.
Immediately after the bridge, a vendor has set up a souvenir shop, dealing in local produces, mainly local fruits. The huge signboard also confirms the location of this picnic spot.
This is a popular picnic spot with the locals. The water here is clean, clear and suitable for playing.
The one thing that struck us in the recent visit, was the sight of an unusually large amount of rubbish that was scattered all over this vacation area.
