Waterfalls are one of the major tourists attractions in Malaysia and have been tirelessly running streams vertically in such a powerful force, the sounds of the pounding water on the rocks is very relaxing and therapeutic to some. Others would like to dip in the cool waters of the waterfall, surrounded by rocks of various shapes and sizes, and immerse themselves in the wonders of relaxation water can do to people.
The calming effects of water are so intense. It's always fun to have a picnic at waterfalls. If cascading falls and running streams are your cup of tea, then you should visit places such as Kanching Falls (Kuala Lumpur), Ulu Bendol (Negeri Sembilan) or Lata Kijang (Perak). However, if you prefer rivers, you should note that Malaysia's longest river can be found in Sarawak, and it's called Sungei Rajang.
An ideal location for relaxation, there are sheds, stools, toilet facilities and car parks provided for visitors. The lush greenery and serene wilderness are just perfect for camping, waterfall picnics and mountain climbing.
Lata Meraung is a scenic waterfall located 16km from the town of Jerantut. Lata means ‘waterfall’ whereas Meraung means ‘groaning’ in Malay as the cascading water hitting the pool surface and rocks sounds just like groaning people.
