Langkawi has a few waterfalls that offer a scenic and peaceful location for a picnic or simple relaxation. However, these waterfalls tend to be quite shallow and slow-moving during the dry seasons. When there’s rain, however, the waterfalls will begin bursting with life once again. The best time to see these waterfalls in their element is during the rainy season at the year-end.
Air Terjun Temurun
The Temurun waterfalls are conveniently located in the Mat Cincang Nature Park of Datai, offering the ‘hot’ visitor refreshing waters from the mountains. The waters cascade down a 30 m drop, forming a nice pool below which you can swim in. This is indeed a spectacular waterfall to visit, but only when it isn’t the dry season as the waterfall will flow to a trickle during this period.
Durian Perangin Falls
This 14-tier waterfall flows down the slopes of Mount Raya, along the way, dotted with unique rock formations and immersed with crystal-clear water. A rich variety of vegetation grows abundantly around the falls. Just a short distance away are some hot springs in Kampung Ayer Hangat.
The name of this waterfall means ‘Seven Wells’, referring to a collection of seven intertwined natural pools fed by seven separate waterfalls in Mount Mat Cincang. Locals claim that fairies reside in the area but tourists are more likely to find the flora around the water more magically appealing. Some unique lime plants and Sintuk, a climbing type of foliage, grow abundantly. Intrepid travelers can climb to the top of the falls in 45 minutes, hopefully spotting some macaque monkeys, hornbills or a giant squirrel along the way. Read More...
