从Kuala Kangsar使用76号公路往Lenggong方向前进。一路上有两座瀑布是不可能被错过的,那就是Perahu瀑布及Kekabu瀑布。两者相比,Perahu瀑布并没有得到太多的发展,也因此保持着原始的面貌。当地人也称呼为“Lata Prow”。


瀑布在Kati附近,只需留意标着“Lata Perahu”的路牌。转左进入乡村小巷,经过马来村庄及种植园。柏油路终止在一个斜坡下。此时建议大家在此开始步行,接下来一段泥路不太适合普通车子行驶。


Drive along the road no. 76 towards Lenggong direction from Kuala Kangsar, there’s 2 waterfalls you won’t miss. 1st falls is Perahu Fall and follow by Kekabu Fall. Perahu Fall not a tall spectacular fall but peaceful picnic location for family outing. The place is quite secluded if compare with more popular Kekabu Fall. Even on Sunday, it’s not many people here. Local Malay call the falls as ‘Lata Prow’.

The falls located near Kati. Look out for the road sign ‘Lata Perahu’ on your left and turn in to the narrow tar road. Follow the narrow kampong road, you’ll pass thru a small Malay Kampong with some houses around. Soon you’ll reach an unpaved road in front of you. You can choose to start walking up the slope as the road condition after that is not suitable for sedan car.

We had choosed to walk. Because some fallen trunks and bushes grown up very soon, the trail became narrower and just nice for motorbike passing. Just about 10 mins of walking, we reached Perahu Fall.

    Hi Eastwind, we reversed our car back same as you but we are a little bit luckier, not into the muddy grass side way. Next time you should walk till the end, you are so near to the destination. Good luck to your future exploring ya!
