One hour journey and you can feel the beauty of the nature! Cooling, relaxing and refreshing. A mini getaway from the city. Had an opportunity take picture with snakes and parrots again after years ✌️

This place is accessible by public transportation in KL. Take Kelana Jaya LRT line to Pasar Seni Station, then walk to the bus stop which is sandwiched between the entrance of Pasar Seni Mydin(nearby the UTC Pasar Seni) and MayBank's building, then get aboard the SJ bus #150, bus fare cost RM2 per way, journey takes around 45 minutes, but do keep the ticket with you along the journey because there'll be people to come over to check it. The entrance of this waterfall is located in the middle of highway, so you might have to ask the bus driver to tell you which stop to alight. For coming back, there's a bus stop just 5 minutes walking distance from the entrance, you will have to take the same bus, and usually the last stop will be the Bangkok Bank somewhere near to the Pasar Seni. For entrance, they charge RM2.10 each Malaysian, and around RM5+ for non-Malaysian. The water is freezing cold, and if you're fine to hike further, you will find a better spot with better view, clearer water and less crowded. The monkeys are cute but they are also the nuisance over there. It is not advisable to have a barbecue session or even picnic, although there is still a lot of people do so, the monkeys are way too aggressive and they are a lot of them. When you're in the water, do have someone to look after your stuffs, or bring it all as near to you as possible. These cute things even know how to unzip the bags.
