The Telaga Tujuh or Seven Falls is one of the “Must See, if not you will cry and regret” attraction of Langkawi, Malaysia. Of course we dare say this because we have been here so many times and it still remains our top 5 recommended things to do in Langkawi.
Any body we meet or who asks us, “What is there to do in Langkawi” we will tell them to visit the Seven Falls.
As the name suggests it is a Waterfall with Seven Drops. It is very high and the best view of the whole Seven Falls is if you are riding the cable car. Dont think you can see me waving down there can you?
To get to the Seven Falls, you will need some transport. Ride out the Berjaya Resort or the Cable Car. The waterfalls are just next to these two landmarks. If you are coming from Cenang Beach, you will roughly take about 25 minutes drive/ride. From Kuah about 35 minutes. There are plenty of signboards. Just head to Telaga Tujuh (Seven Falls in Malay)
At the bottom of the falls, near the carpark there are stalls there.
We used to be able to ride our motorbikes/ scooters up this trek and park at the designated parking space at the middle point. But some smart ass decided to block it and set up a collecting counter for parking. Motorbikes now have to pay RM 1 to park.
And because i was climbing slowly (not because i was a fat ass, but because i wanted to enjoy the scenery), i managed to count and confirm the number of steps.
We thought of sharing the whole meaning of the term F.O.R.E.S.T. For those who don’t know what it is. So at least when GREENPEACE signs us to fight for it, we know that we are fighting for a whole lot of stuff instead of just trees!
we actually thought FOREST was like a word to describe a place full of trees. We played around with some words. Maybe jungle means:
Excuse the winnie the pooh speelings
Along the way and also at the waterfalls. One thing you got to be careful is, the monkeys. Believe me, they will snatch your bag or plastic bag if they think you have food in it. And they aren’t scared of the “shoo shoo” sounds you make. Using a stick, you might just scare them for a bit, and they might come back again.
Just be vigilant and leave your food in the bag. If you are going for a picnic, dont leave your bags and go for a swim! A good example below. Read on.
The monkeys don’t look cute at all.So no point taking a photo with them. Was very hard for me to take a picture of this guy. Maybe should bribe him with a banana or something.
After a picnic and swim up here. The extremely hot weather in Langkawi doesnt seem that hot anymore.
Happy backpacking in Langkawi. We hope this gives you an idea of what to expect at the Seven Falls Langkawi.
We definitely recommend this place as a must see destination in Langkawi. It is even better when it is during the rainy seasons, where the pools are overflowing with water.
