Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls in Langkawi
Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls is billed as the island’s most wonderful natural attraction. Set on Langkawi’s western headlands, its name means Seven Wells Waterfalls, referring to a series of seven connected natural pools fed by seven separate waterfalls in Mount Mat Cincang.
Managed by the Berjaya Leisure (part of the bigwig Berjaya Group), there is an ugly pipeline that runs next to the pools and the waterfall goes all the way to the Berjaya Langkawi Beach Resort. This development has resulted in reducing the water flow at the pools during the wet season to a reserved cascade and a trickle in dry season.
Locals say that the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls are home to fairies, but really it is probably the gorgeous flora in the area that makes the place seem magical. Plant life here includes unique lime plants and Sintuk, a climbing type of foliage, which grow abundantly.
Adventure enthusiasts can brave the steep climb to the top of the waterfalls, past huge rocks and through the seven pools: a journey that will take you approximately 45 minutes, along the way you are likely to spot macaques, hornbills and a positively giant squirrel or two along the way.
