sorry, just check the new released MFM map, found that the name for the waypoints are incorrect.

N1.59212 E103.52501 is 1st tier (not 3)

N1.59147 E103.52565 is 2nd tier (not 7)

:tq:

Sungai Bantang Waterfall

Postby snail-works » Tue May 12, 2009 2:20 pm

There are two good reasons why Hutan Lipur Sungai Bantang is a top choice for family outings or adventures. The first is the Endau Rompin National Park and the second is an award it has won for being the best recreational forest in Johor.

Since it shares the same ground with the centuries-old national park, a trip to Hutan Lipur Sungai Bantang comes quite close to a trip to the national park itself. The furthest accessible waterfall, Takah Putri, leads to the western section of Endau Rompin.

There is a wide rocky river that ‘splits’ into two at the secondary forest before rejoining downstream. These two `branches’ have created an island that offers many great spots for camps or picnics.

If you find Sungai Bantang too tame to give you an adrenalin rush, try the number of interesting and challenging treks with hiking times of between one and six hours. The treks lead to several waterfalls.

Buaya Sangkut (N2.49275 E103.31985)

This is one of the spectacular falls in Malaysia. Buaya Sangkut is the main attraction of Endau Rompin National Park. It's quite a something to behold in it's sheer height and vastness. In terms of numbers this waterfall is 30 meters wide and drops 17 000 gallon of water per second from a height of 120 meters. This fall also famous with it's own legends.

Upeh Guling Waterfall (N2.51230 E103.34989)
From Kuala Marong campsite, a short 15 minutes away is the Upeh Guling Waterfalls, with a series of whirlpools formed by ancient volcanic rocks – supposed to be the oldest existing landmarks in Malaysia at 240 million years old! The waterfall is rather wide and short but we saw at least 4 levels/cascades. Good place to get a free massage from the falling waters. Interestingly, there were odd-shaped holes at the falls which resembled natural bathtubs. It has it's own legend too...

air terjun gunung pulai 2

Postby snail-works » Thu Jun 18, 2009 11:23 pm

Compare to the waterfall at main Hutan Lipur G Pulai, this consider quite a small fall. From what i see, it has 3 tiers of bigger fall, others r small cascade or rapids.

The entrance to the park is from a malay village name Kampung Sawah. The signboard "Hutan Lipur G Pulai 2" is very small and easy to be overlooked. It takes about 5 min walking time to reach the fall from the park. Just follow the water pipe on your right, you can visit all the tiers and to the tiny dam at upper stream.

Since the main Hutan Lipur Guung Pulai is closed to the public, this is 2nd picnic point for the local. According to the malay stall owner at the park, local authority had confirmed and planned to develope the park. Some challet construction are seen.
