My World: Lata Iskandar Waterfalls


Lata Iskandar waterfalls

Lata Iskandar Waterfalls #2

Stall at Lata Iskandar

This is a well-known waterfall in Perak situated just off the long and winding road between Tapah and Cameron Highlands, approximately midway between the two destinations, Lata Iskandar is a multi-tiered fall, with pools at the base of each tier.

Many a visitor takes the opportunity to go for a short dip in the cool water of these pools, which have their origins up in the higher reaches of the surrounding highlands. Nature lovers can go slightly off the beaten track and get to enjoy the rich flora and fauna.

Near the base of the falls, visitors will find a handicraft bazaar where an assortment of craft is available for one's selection. Look out especially for the craft of Orang Asli, the so-called "original people" of the country.

A row of stalls serving drinks and snacks have been set up nearby for the convenience of people who stop to enjoy the pleasures of Lata Iskandar.

  4. As a hydrologist, I approve of this post. That is an interesting waterfall and geology. It's always interesting to me how waterfalls give the illusion of more water than they actually are dropping. It's a sort of water illusion.

    Oh..I'm flattered.
    I never knew that the volume of water dropping is actually less than it seems. Thanks for the info ;)

    p/s: I never got a good score on Hydrology subject at the college.
