Sg Pisang

Magnificent waterfall located at the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. The pool under the waterfall isn’t deep thus it is a famous place for beginners, the isn’t really large as well, just enough to have a good dip in the chilling water, a great place to get away from the hot sun. The current wasn’t really strong when we visit but still it is good to take extra precaution especially during rainy days.

Wide and rocky river

Sg Kedondong

This river is located just along the road to Genting Highlands if you’re heading there from Ulu Yam / Batang Kali, its a large park with facilities that are not really well maintained. The park can be really crowded especially during weekends because to easily accessed from the main road. It takes less than an hour drive if you’re going from Kuala Lumpur.
