When you continue on the walkway, you will reach the waterfalls. They may not be dramatic or impressive, but sure they are attractively located in the forest.

Aug 2022 Update : There are 2 more falls upriver. It takes about 20mins plus of hiking following the clear trail on the right side of the river. The upper levels are usually quiet as few visitors venture up to this point. Water cascades down a narrow crevice of the rock and forms a nice pool at its outflow.

Went on 21/2/99 and the water is so much cleaner than now. Well that is how things are nowadays.

Be careful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Jalan Sungai Lalang road from the Jalan Sungai Tekali access to the Tekali waterfall has collapsed near the Semenyih dam. Many cars have fallen down and unfortunately some passengers died there. Even today July 6th 2013 a lady driver fall/crashed to the valley but survived. Choose another path from Semnyih area to the Tekali waterfall. Have a safe and pleasant journey to the Tekali fall :)

Just today myself and 2 friends visited to there. From Seminiyah 10 minutes journey. Really excellent place and able to enjoy with 4 different falls and on very top a xcellant fall into cave we have enjoyed by trekking along dark forest. The top 2 falls suit for youngster to reach and others are not recommendable as those are located in too dark forest to be trekking on risky jungle. Totally this is suit for family and youngster. Also very nearby there is a large fishing lake per 3 hour 25 /-Rm. And a water dam, which was closed and no entry for visitor. I dont know why not allowing for visitor as it s too nice place. Note: The road via ampang is closed by road slide and you should take the route via seminiyah to reach here.

Nice to trek, EXCELLENT to picnic and dip and shoot models, JUST be careful while trekking because some rocks may be SLIPPERY as usual....

The last time I went water level was low and not too clean due to overcrowding. Nevertheless is a suitable waterfall for kids.

Tekala is a nice picnic spot and a place for the kids to swim. Camping is available across the main entrance in a fenced off section. A crowd favourite on the weekends, but some new toilet and changing room facilities. Keep walking upriver and uphill for a nice easy hike.

my visit was on 14dec08... RM1 per head... quite crowded during weekend, the water is not too clear and not too cold as well... easy for family outing...

Very nice place for small children. Been there 3/4 times over the last two months. Only problem during our last trip was that there were too many monkeys and most of our time was spent guarding our belongings as opposed to having a good time in the water. Apart from that beatiful place - a definite place to visit with the family.
