Pretty well maintained. Water pressure at the toilets are too low though.
Love the hanging bridge and viewing platform too!

Lata Kinjang is one of the tallest falls of Malaysia. From the highway only the middle part with the huge cascade can be seen.
If you travel from KL , you need around 2 hours . For tourists ticket price RM 8 . Good place for picnic with Friends and Family

Nice 850m high waterfall, can take nice pics at the bottom and at the bridge at the top. Some rocks are really slippery, so need to be careful but really refreshing place.
