Waterfalls in Langkawi very few, and only three popular. In addition to them, there are several small waterfalls located in remote and hard-to-reach parts of the island by transport, but as an independent attraction they are not interesting, and they should be visited only during trekking or other excursion routes together with other interesting places. Here is a list and a brief description of the three most interesting and beautiful waterfalls in Langkawi, worthy of visiting as an independent attraction:

  • Seven Wells Waterfall and eco-trail

    Seven Wells Waterfall

    The waterfall Telaga Tujuh or Seven Wells (Seven Wells) got its name because of seven small pools-wells that "dug" in the rock of the stream water. The water in them is cool, and will be a real salvation from the heat, and even after a long climb up.

    The waterfall is reached by a well-equipped staircase of 638 steps (20-40 minutes on foot), originating from the parking of vehicles. Approximately in the middle of the way, you can deviate and see the waterfall from below, and then continue upward to the site, where the cherished cool pools are located. From the platform, the Eco-Trail continues to the top of the Mat Cincang mountain with a height of just over 700 meters. This trekking does not require special training, but you need a good physical shape. To the top you will have to overcome a little more than 220 meters in height (since the wells themselves are at an altitude of 480 meters), and 980 meters on the way. In time, the Ascent will take two to three hours. Learn more

    🕐 Working hours: the waterfall can be visited at any time of the day. It looks best in the rainy season (September-October), because in the dry season water falls from the cliff in a thin stream. To pass the trekking route opposite is best in the dry season from November to March.

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶   How to get there: "seven wells" is located near the Oriental Village, and all these places together are located near Pantai Kok Beach ("Seven wells" on the map). From other beaches you will have to get by taxi or by rented transport.

  • Temurun Waterfall

    Temurun Waterfall

    Temurun Waterfall is a very picturesque waterfall located in the north of the island. It is considered the most beautiful on the island and is very popular with locals and tourists. It consists of several cascades with a total height of 30 meters (height of nine floors), and a pool at the foot, where you can even swim. There are a lot of monkeys around, so keep a close eye on things, especially if you decide to go swimming (see how to behave with monkeys, precautions).

    Unfortunately, in the hot season and in the absence of rains, it dries up and becomes like a stream, so there is not much to do at this time. Therefore, it is best to go to see the waterfall in the dry season after the rain.

    🕐 Working hours: around the clock.

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶  How to get there: located in the northwest of the island far from the beaches (Temurun waterfall on the map). It is visited as part of some sightseeing tours. You can drive yourself by rented transport, leave it in free parking, and then 100 meters on foot.

  • Durian Falls

    Durian Falls

    Durian Perangin Waterfall is another beautiful waterfall on the island that is worth a visit if you are traveling around the northeastern part of the island. Durian is away from popular tourist destinations, but not far from Air Hangat hot springs and villages, so visiting both attractions can be combined. The waterfall is very long and consists of 14 small cascades, along which there is a well-equipped trail with stairs and gazebos. At the very top there is a pool where you can swim, but be careful, it is very slippery. There are also many monkeys in the area.

    At the foot of the waterfall there is a parking area and souvenir shops and cafes. Nearby is a farm exotic durian fruit.

    💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶  How to get there: Durian falls on the map. It is visited as part of some sightseeing tours. You can drive yourself by rented transport, leave it in free parking, and then a fairly long walk along the rapids to the very top.
