A beautiful landscape of tropical rainforests, rivers and waterfalls against the backdrop of the hills and mountains in the east plus the stretch of sandy beaches on the west coast describes the land of Negeri Sembilan. The topography of this state, situated at the end of the Main Range running from the North of Peninsular Malaysia, is very much characterised by this vast stretch of highlands. Many recreational areas have been identified along this range, the National Park, being the biggest.
In Negeri Sembilan, Jeram Gading is one such area. It is believed that the name originated from the existence of the many elephants in the area - gading meaning tusk. The main attraction of Jeram Gading is the waterfall, cascading sheets of water flowing through trees and boulders sending sprays of droplets to the left and right as it hits obstacles in its path, curling into balls of white foam before disappearing into clamer waters.
Although the area is not suitable for kayaking, it is an ideal spot for a family picnic. Enjoy frolicking around with children in the clear waters and take pleasure in listening to their sreams and watching their antics when you release a paper boat, or as a reminiscense of old times, a pelepah pisang boat, into the flow of water. Watch it glide along the stream before being swept up in the current and disappearing at the turn of the river. Situated 23km from Kuala Klawang, Jeram Gading is in the Kenaboi district. Driving to this tourist attraction, you will pass roads lined with tress and shrubs, most of them fruit trees and orchads belonging to the villagers. For your convenience, among the facilities available at this favourite weekend retreat are a parking area, wooden log cabins and public toilets.
