Lata Tampit Waterfall, Janda Baik 5 November 2010
Direction to Janda Baik - KL to Karak Highway. First left turn after the tunnel. Make a U-turn. First left turn after Petronas petrol station & McDonald. Go straight till you reach a welcoming arch(on your right), turn right.
Lata Tampit Waterfall (a.k.a Ulu Tampit) - Look for Latto Charok signage on your right. Turn right when you see the sign. Second left turn (next to the abandoned house). Go straight till the end where you arrive at Latto Charok chalet. The entrance to Lata Tampit is located next to chalet compound.
Left- the abandoned house. Right- Entrance gate to Lata Tampit Waterfall.
It is not a must to have a guide to go to the waterfall as oppose to much information mentioned on various websites. How to get to the waterfall.(read the warning notice). The owner of the Latto Charok chalet, Jafri (019 347 0772) offers us a guide for a fee. He charges us RM200 for 10 people. We told him we don't need a guide and we settled on RM30 for parking at his chalet area. Alternatively, you could just park at the abandoned house and walk pass his chalets to the entrance gate, but I am not sure what will be the consequence if you happened to bump into him.
Along the trail, you need to climb over or go under fallen tree trunks. Please watch out for thorns on some fallen trunks where you need to bend down and cross. It is not a problem for our young kids as they are short.
