Lata Makau

Date : 13 Nov 2011

How to get there :
Location : Sg Pertak Village, Kuala Kubu Baru
Once you turn right into Sg Pertak Village, at the T junction turn right
Park your car along the road on the right clearing about 5 mins drive on (alternatively you can drive up to the bridge and see if there is space along the road or not)

Trekking time and terrain :
Cross the first two bridges and then follow the left path at the fork. After that its basically quite clear with visible forks.
On moderate speed with some photography - in and out 5 hours with a short stop 3/4 way point and a main stop at the fall
Terrain rating 5/10
Description of terrain : Fairly flat with short inclines, last part river trekking and also need to climb up a branch (there is no markings)
The fall has a large and deep pool but was shaded from the sun when I was there, hence it was brrrr, cold!

Durian season

Make sure you don't touch this

3/4 way rest stop

Common wild orchids
The main fall
Large pool

The fall is not spectacular but it was a good day out as I stopped hiking for over a month already... it was a small group today and its usually faster this way.
