Visit Malaysia - Lata Tembakah, Terengganu
Lata Tembakah offers nature activities for a healthy mind and body. The waterfall is located within the 300 sq. ha Pelagat Forest Reserve in Besut, about 24km from Jerteh or 130km from Kuala Terengganu.
The area, which was first developed in 1987, is blessed with natural vegetation and a beautiful seven-tiered cascading waterfall with its highest point reaching 50m. It is a great place to have a picnic with family and friends over the weekend. The pools are suitable for swimming, and there are changing rooms and toilets for visitors' convenience.
For nature and adventure lovers, they can go for jungle trekking in the forest or just take a stroll along the footpaths and concrete steps. There are also camping facilities available, as well as chalets and resthouse, for those who want to stay overnight.
The first waterfalls are actually more like cascades. They have nice, large pools, which make them perfect for family outings. Not surprisingly, this park can be crowded during weekends and holidays. When you follow the trail along the river, you'll reach the mid falls.
It is number 4 of the list and is is a tall fall (about 80 meters). From here you can continue to the upper falls by either following the jungle trail, which is clearly signposted.
The upper falls are also very impressive and as it takes some effort to reach them, it will be quiet even on crowded weekends.
