Another awesome trip on Saturday morning. My special thanks my friend, Mariam, who has start and stuck with this plan. Actually our initial plan was to Perlus Waterfall but out of sudden the people that suppose to bring us here not available on that day. So, Mariam decided to proceed with the plan to other waterfall trekking, Lepoh... although she could not remember the trekking path at all...it was 2 years back since her last trekking.
Lepoh Waterfall was located at Hulu Langat, near Kg Pangsun. Just before reaching this Kampung, there was a signage “Asli Adventure Base Camp” where you need to turn left. This small road ends after a few km at a place where you can park your car. We arrived to the starting point around 7.45 a.m and parked our cars at the designated parking area near the entrance. There’s no one when we reached there. So, I guest, we’re the first group.
|We parked in front of this base camp|
From here you need to cross a stream and two small bridges. This is a region of Durian orchards and bamboo forest. Just after that you will enter the forest where the real trekking is begun.
When you reach water pipeline, you should know that you are on the right way. The track follows more or less the pipeline until a water catchment basin is reached. From here it is not far to the waterfall.
Generally the track is clear & not so hard to follow. Like us, luckily we had Mariam to guide us.

The trek is going uphill all the time but not in a strenuous way. It will take about two hours to cover the 4 km to the waterfall, but I think we did less than 2 hours.

|Apa nama ntah|
|Putih & suci|
After 2 hours of climbing, we came upon the waterfall, found spot for ground site, put our bags and started enjoying the waterfall. I don't know how to descibe how happy I am at that time. Yang heaven nye, tak ade sorang pun kat atas ni masa kami sampai.
|Finally, we;re here... Lepoh waterfall|
Attractive waterfall, with a deep pool for swimming
The trail ends here. If you want to reach the top of the fall, you will have to scramble up at the right side of the fall.

Kami habis mandi-mandi around 11.30 a.m and started descending after that. Time taken to reach down was about 1 hour. On the way back to, kami jumpa few groups yang nak ke lepoh waterfall juga. Luckily, we're the first to come. If not, then, tak enjoylah cause too many people.
