Perak, Malaysia – Lata Kinjang Waterfall, the sole ecotourism destination in Perak, is renowned for its pristine natural beauty, untouched by pollution or development.
Flowing naturally from the Titiwangsa Mountain Range, the cool and refreshing waters of Lata Kinjang Waterfall are recognized as one of the tallest waterfalls in Southeast Asia.
Situated approximately 18km from the town of Tapah and a mere 100 meters from Kampung Orang Asli Lata Kinjang, this holiday destination captivates visitors’ attention.
The waterfall is visible while travelling on the North-South Expressway (PLUS) through the Tapah area from both directions, showcasing its enchanting allure.
Visitors have the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature up close and personal, crossing a suspension bridge that offers a breathtaking view of the waterfall. However, reaching the suspension bridge requires ascending 63 steps.
The sight of the waterfall from the suspension bridge is truly mesmerizing. Every visitor who traverses the bridge cannot resist capturing the moment with a photograph, as this location is considered the most picturesque spot for snapshots.
Furthermore, visitors can explore several shops where they can purchase souvenirs as mementoes to take home.
As one of the premier eco-tourism destinations in Southeast Asia, Taman Eko Rimba Lata Kinjang promises an unforgettable experience for nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike.
Its unspoiled beauty and tranquil surroundings make it a must-visit destination for those seeking solace in the embrace of nature.
