Waterfalls In Malaysia: Experience Lepok Waterfalls

Updated on February 8, 2012

Main Lepok Waterfall

Initial Hike Up

Lepok Waterfall Review

Lepok Waterfalls is located along Hulu Langat. There is lot of waterfalls around the area where it is situated. The driver will need to towards Ulu Langat. After reaching Ulu Langat, the driver will then follow the Kampung Pangsun sign. Once the driver has reached the small village, the hikers will need to pay RM 3 to the locals for parking. The toilets there cost RM 0.50. The toilets have been built by the locals to cater for all the hikers that are passing by.

Recommended preparation would be 2 liters of water, a simple meal, sun block, a cap and leech socks is recommended for this trip, the area is moist and there can be quite a few leeches around. Salt is also recommended to remove the leeches from one’s body. This is another spot that can a beginner can come to. The walk is about one and a half hours to two hours depending on the speed of the group. It’s also recommended to bring along some lunch food or some snacks for a picnic at the waterfall. Hikers, PLEASE keep the area clean, any rubbish that is brought along, please pack it up and bring it back with you.

The trek up at the start is not that steep, there will be muddy trails along the way. If it did not rain the night before, the trail will be quite nice to walk on. The earth that is being stepped on is the orange mud trails. Throughout the trek, most of the parts will be shaded. This will be very good for hikers that are afraid of the sun.

Pipes Along The Way

The hikers will have to pass a plantation that has no shade. There are quite a few stray dogs around this area, as words of caution please bring sticks just in case they decide to attack you. From the open area, the hiker will need to hike about another 15-20 minutes to reach the halfway point. The halfway point will be a shaded open area that is not part of the trek. In this open area, the hiker will be able see a very oddly looking tree after their arrival. This is a very good place to take a short rest as it has a big enough space to allow everyone to sit and chit chat together.

After walking from the rest point, the hiker will be able to notice a big steel pipe. When the hiker see’s this, it will indicate that they are about 30 minutes away from the end point. When the hiker is near the Lepok Waterfall, they will pass an abandon building. It is NOT RECOMMENDED to stay and wander into this building, please proceed to the Lepok Waterfall which is about 10 minutes’ walk from the abandon house.

The hiker’s would be able to slide down at the Lepok Waterfall. It’s a real nice place to relax and also forget about the city. There are small fishes at the pond around the waterfall. The water can be quite cold, so be prepared to be frozen.

I hope you will enjoy the waterfall as much as I did!
