Gabai Waterfalls, Kuala Lumpur

1.2
#5 of 6 in Nature in Kuala Lumpur
Take a dip in the natural pools created by Gabai Waterfalls. Hold on to the handrail and climb the 333 steps to go all the way up, stopping at the shelters and gazebos if you need to rest along the way. Wear rubber sandals to protect your feet and avoid slipping on slick rocks. After passing the second cascade with a distinctive near-vertical drop, cross a concrete bridge to reach a natural water slide. Note that the place can get crowded during weekends and public holidays. To visit Gabai Waterfalls and other attractions in Kuala Lumpur, use our Kuala Lumpur route maker site .
