Enchanting Land - the Berkelah Waterfalls
To reach the start of the trail, is an adventure in itself.First you have to find the right exit from the Maran-Kuantan road. About 31 km after Maran there is a signboard "Sungei Berkelah" Turn left here. A 4WD is needed, but also transport can be arranged from a nearby kampung.
The first waterfall
Waterfall after waterfall
After the first waterfall a few smaller falls follow. They have olympic-size pools with crystal-clear water.
Very inviting for a refreshing bath.
On the way you will see several place which are suitable for camping. But always be careful, that the place is safe against flash-flooding!
Finally the top fall is reached, again with a huge pool (picture at the right).
Walking back, following the river bed, it is very clear how the river has eroded its way down amidst huge rocks and boulders
