Temurun Waterfall Overview

Being the tallest falls at about 200 meters - Temurun waterfall is one of the popular Langkawi attractions; especially amongst groups of families and friends who like to take a day off and come here for a picnic, play games at natural grounds, bathe in the clear water and rest in the lap of nature.

The fall is one of the tallest and a three-step natural waterfall. The collective height of all the 3 tiers of the Temurun Waterfall is about 200 meters.

The stream coming from the steep slope forms a small pond at the footsteps of the hill. The pond is not very deep but good enough for swimming and bathing. Most tourists and locals enjoy diving off the adjacent cliff.

The first tier of the waterfall is at a walkable distance (5-minute walk) from the car parking area, located on the main road. Visitors take the paved pathway to reach atop the first tier. The cemented pathway with railing on one side through the thick woods provides a romantic touch to the surroundings. The pathway rises gradually upwards although some steps are steeper than the others.

The several summerhouses or canopy styled structures located along the way provide shade and comfort to the visitors. Visitors enjoy taking a break at these gazebos and soak in the scenic vistas. Tourists climb 10m to reach the top tier. The 30 m waterfall at the top tier, which forms a 100 ft natural pool entices the trekkers. The stunning panoramas, the myriad colorful butterflies, birds, and squirrels allure the visitors.
