This is Why You Should Definitely Visit The Temurun Waterfall, Langkawi

By Vengatesh - September 4, 2020
Temurun Falls

The Malaysian island of Langkawi is a beautiful jungle-clad getaway on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, at the very bottom of the Andaman Sea. Near Singapore’s height, Langkawi is surrounded by beautiful beaches and spectacular calcareous karsts. Temurun Waterfall is situated in Malaysia’s Datai Bay district, in the Mat Cincang Nature Park. It cascades from the northern slope of Mat Cincang Mountain, which is 850 m high.

The fall is one of the largest and a natural waterfall in three stages. The total height of all three levels of the Temurun waterfall is approximately 200 metres.

The first tier of the waterfall is situated on the main road at a walkable distance (5-minute walk) from the car park area. To enter the top of the first floor, visitors take the paved road. The cemented pathway through the dense woods with railing on one side offers a romantic touch to the surroundings. While some steps are steeper than others, the route steadily rises upwards. The swimming and bathing pond is not quite deep but decent enough. Both visitors and locals enjoy scuba diving off the nearby cliff in Temurun Waterfall.

By Road to Temurun Waterfall:

Langkawi is the nearest place and lies about 40 km to Temurun Waterfall. Taxis here are the best type of transport on this island. Though they are a little bit expensive since it’s a tourist attraction.

If you’re good at driving and confident about left-hand driving then self-driving is a good option because they are much cheaper than taxis.
