Only a few people know that a couple of beautiful waterfalls can be found in the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. To reach them you have to take the Zoo Negara exit of the Ring Road. This is the region of Ulu Klang. After passing Kg Kemansah, the road ends at the Institut Budaya Baru Melayu.

About 100 meter before the guard house, there is an entry in the fence to an ATV track. Follow this track to the fall

Parts of the traill are heavily eroded.

After following the trail for about 45 minutes, you will hear the sound of falling water. A small trail leads down to the Lower Ampang Fall, sometimes erroneously called Kemansah Fall

But it becomes gradually steeper

After about one hour you will hear the sound of rushing water adn you know that you have reached the Middle Ampang Fall.

This fall has not really a pool at the bottom

You have to scramble up the slopes to reach the Upper Fall, which actually is quite close to the Middle one.
