Accessibility4WD advisable

The Kijang waterfall has the reputation that it might be the tallest waterfall in Peninsular Malaysia. The name should not be confused with Lata Kinjang, in Perak. Access to the fall is from Kg Esok. Quality of the road is reasonable, but a 4WD is advisable. The distance to the fall is about 20 km and you will pass Felda settlements and small kampungs on your way

Unspoilt nature. The 'autumn' colors are actually new leaves

The access road is reasonable.

Don't worry, this bridge is no longer in use.

There are several placec which are suitable for camping. But not near the fall itself. In the past some effort has been done to upgrade the site, but everything has fallen into disrepair.
The fall itself is impressive, not easy to catch this impression in a picture.

UPDATE MAY 2008

Recently a supporter of Waterfalls of Malaysia visited the waterfall from the air! With his kind permission we show here two pictures.

UPDATE November 2010

Flash flooding has recently caused a lot of destruction. As there is risk of more flooding, the fall and its surroundings have been declared out of bounds for the time being by the Negri Sembilan authorities!
