What to Expect?

Perting Pandak Waterfall aka Lata Hammers is still quite the hidden gem of accessible waterfalls. At the Karak highway, exit to Bukit Tinggi and follow the old road to Bentong. It is a quiet, beautiful stretch but be careful not to hit cyclists who love the smooth, winding road.

The water volume from the fall is usually high throughout the year, even in the dry season and the pool is huge. There are several suitable campsites around. It is only a 45-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur followed by a 1.5-hour hike that rewards hikers with the unforgettable experience of a waterfall lagoon in the middle of the forest. The fall can be reached via the scenic but winding old trunk road that connects Bukit Tinggi to Bentong.

Just like a lagoon, the pool has a sandy and deep bank. The beach starts shallow and gets deeper further out. Ropes strung across the deep end serve as a marker and for support. Visitors are advised to swim within the rope sections.

There are also hiking trails in the area to explore the vast and rich tropical Bentong forest. A vague trail to the right of the fall leads to the upper fall, which is more modest, but also has a nice pool. Upstream the river becomes quiet.

This waterfall is a relatively unknown and therefore unspoilt gem, quite near KL.

    Nice place , really beautiful and wild , the only things the people who comes and leave a lot of rubbish , no matter how many writing there is no one cares . I am from different country and only a tourist here , but I clean up that place out of respect to nature , so hope other people will also start to respect it .

    From kebun ayah we need to walk a few meter and on left side we can see river and need to cross it and walk until we found signboard of Lata hammer. By the way if you use 4x4 you can go this way to Lata hammer and get permission from landlord.

    To a certain extent this place still maintains its lush greenery (just that sometimes there are irresponsible campers who leave their rubbish behind). If you think your car is durable enough, you can try driving up the dirt road all the way in to Kebun Ayah, and for a fee of RM10 per car, you can use the facilities (shower, toilet, parking etc) at their place. Great place for camping and swimming but death by drowning has occurred before so always keep an eye for your little ones if they plan to go for a dip!
