3 Waterfalls Near Singapore

These are few of the day trips I did with friends in Malaysia. I presumed that most of you are already aware that Singapore is just a drive away from Johor Bahru Malaysia. It’s the capital of the Malaysian state of Johor.

One of these falls is my personal favorite. You will know why as you go along.

Kota Tinggi Waterfalls

It is a famous attraction in Kota Tinggi, Johor, Malaysia. The waterfalls are located in Lombong at the foot of Gunung (Mountain) Muntahak. Only private vehicle or taxi can bring you here.

This falls is already commercialize and use for local business. There’s a mini water park with slides. They have rooms/chalets for overnight stay. Despite that this place is crowded, especially on weekends and public holidays, the cleanliness is keep up.

Puteri Waterfalls

It is located in Mount Ophir, locally known as Gunung Ledang. It’s the highest mountain in Johor. Only private vehicle or taxi can bring you here.

The falls is about 30-45 minutes walk from the foot. This is my favorite. The place is not crowded, especially if you go up on the second falls where I took my pose. 😉 It’s like having a private waterfalls for yourself. Who doesn’t like that?

In the main entrance, there’s a Gunung Ledang Resort where you can book for stay and a restaurant for your food. I love the place, its seems very private, quiet and relaxing. I’d love to go back here for an overnight stay or two.

There’s a cheap accommodation too. Where individual tiny rooms situated just in front of the foot of the falls with common toilets. Definitely, not a fancy accommodation. Recommended for adventurous people who can sleep anywhere.

Gunung Pulai Waterfalls

It’s the tallest waterfalls in Johor Bahru. It was an accidental trip to this falls when we lost our way up to the summit of Mount Pulai while trekking. It’s not easy to reach this small part of the falls as compared to the two. It involves not an easy up and down slopes (well, for beginner hiker like me). But, the lost was worth it. 🙂

The place is only accessible by private vehicles and taxi.  There’s parking lot provided and it’s normally full during weekends. There are food stalls, toilets and even bathrooms (not free to use).

This place is great for brisk walking, trekking, jogging or just swimming at the falls.

    • Hi Lili,
      Kota Tinggi definitely yes, it’s kids friendly place. Puteri is okay for kids who can steadily walk unless you are okay of carrying them for 30 mins walk up. 🙂 I’m not sure about Gunung Pulai, the way we took was not for kids. There’s should be another way for the family going to the main waterfalls. Thanks for dropping by.
