Mr Tee leading the way to the trail head
When a new acquaintance of mine, Mr Tee invited me to join him with some friends to explore what he assumes is a new waterfall in Tanjong Malim, I decided why not. It’s a day trip and Meun is able to handle our boy without any issues. I like it when people say it’s a ‘no one else knows’ and ‘secrets’ kind of waterfall. To be honest, I am not much of a waterfall person but if there is an opportunity to do some jungle trekking, why not.

A simple but absolutely fun one night camping trip with good friends
When some friends from a local knife forum group suggested a camping trip, I jumped on it and quickly suggested a one night camping trip at Perting waterfall, near Bentong Pahang. I remember the place to be quite near to KL, nice river and offers relatively good camp ground. And to top it all off, I will have the opportunity to test out some new bit of kits I just obtained, namely the Berghaus pack and the Hennessy Explorer Classic hammock.

We continued our river walk towards the waterfall
We were told that there were several waterfalls in and around Batang Ai area. Our campsite was actually half way to one of them. The stream that ran close to our campsite has been exceptionally low for the past few weeks according to our Iban guides. The morning of our second day in the jungle, we were all pumped up to continue walking to get to the waterfall.

Everyone was wondering if the railway support beams would hold!- Pic by Meun
A few hours on the train with a few stops along the way, the train from Hua Lamphong station in Bangkok finally halted at (literally) the end of the track, where the Sai Yok Noi waterfall is located. Between the River Kwai bridge and the waterfall, we had some pretty awesome experience which included a close shave with a rock surface and climb up a steep railway track that seems to see no end.

The first river crossing to Chilling falls
There were rumors about another waterfall not far from Chilling waterfall. Not one but several waterfalls actually. My friend Jan suggested that we try to track down one of the waterfalls. Early one Saturday morning, Jan, Meun and I made our way there.

Lunch break at Kampung Bojong waterfall
Here’s the thing, according to local guides, there are about 13 waterfalls in Semban and its surrounding areas. During this trip, we manage to visit 3 waterfalls (waterfall Bojong-Pain, waterfall Susukng and waterfall Petn). With 10 more elusive waterfalls in the area, I reckon my waterfall addict friend Jan already have Semban penned out on his to do list.

Part of the trail leading up to Semban village- Pic by Meun
The walk up to Semban village, while painfully slow and tiring for me personally is nevertheless one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences. The trail is a mixture of good jungle, adventure and man’s ability to co-exist with the world around him.

A sandy beach with cool waterfall breeze, what more can one ask for?
We finally arrived at the inner Kenip waterfall after an hour plus of walking through the jungle. The trail opens up to a wide sandy area with the waterfall blowing a gentle cool breeze into my face. Not the most spectacular waterfall but definitely one of the best sites for a group BBQ picnic!

A really beautiful, almost untouched river near Rawang
Somewhere at the foothills near Rawang, we chance upon a small, fast flowing stream. There we no trails heading into the stream from the roadside, which can only mean that it is relatively undisturbed. Meun and I decided to head back there one weekend just to explore it a bit more. It turned out to be surprisingly good day.

Dry river bed exposing rocks makes up part of the final 1km walk to Rainbow Waterfall
The last 1km walk into the Rainbow waterfall consists of rocky (dry) river bed and narrow jungle trail. We moved really slowly through the rocky riverbed. One wrong move would result in a twisted ankle and even a fall that could knock us out. Worse still, our vehicle is 8km away!
