You have to be nuts to drive 2 hours, then hike another 2 just to see a rock, right?
Sometimes you’ve got to want something really badly. Jeram Perlus is one of those things. It takes between 2 1/2 to 3 hours to hike the nearly 8 kilometres to get to this hidden cascade. In less time and with less effort you could be at another waterfall, swimming and catching fish with your teeth. But unlike Jeram Perlus, you won’t have the place all to yourself.
Located within the 50 hectare Sungai Pandan Forest Reserve on the outskirts of Kuantan, Pandan Waterfall is a dramatic 100 meter vertical torrent that’s almost as wide as it is high. It’s also incredibly accessible with no hiking necessary
For a town whose fortunes were built on the back of tin mining in one of the world’s deepest mines, where the only light source would have been a headlamp, Sungai Lembing’s most appealing natural attractions revolve around light. Rainbow Falls, located 10 kilometres outside of town is it’s prettiest.
If there is an Eden, then Erawan Falls is surely fashioned after it. Located within the biodiversity hotspot of Erawan National Park just an 1 1/2 hours outside of Kwai Noi and Kanchanacuri, the iconic Erawan Waterfalls is arguably the most breathtaking falls in all of Thailand. I explored every level of this 7 level wonder.
There are plenty of reasons to head to Kuala Kubu Baru. The picturesque park of Taman Millennium and rushing waters of Sungai Selangor are just two of them. Whether the nearby Bukit Batu Pahat is too remains debatable. I climbed it with the KL Hiking crew; here’s what I thought….
A mere 1 hour flight from KL, Indonesia’s fourth largest city might not strike you as a destination for adventure lovers, but with some careful planning and travel, Medan makes an excellent base for these stunning natural attractions.
