Located in the southern state of Johor, the Kota Tinggi Waterfall is one of the most natural falls in the country. It is situated about 60km away from the state capital, Johor Bahru while is very near to Kota Tinggi, a major town of the state.
Taking only about a 15 minutes drive from Kota Tinggi, the waterfall starts from the peak of Mount Panti and is 36 meters high.
Dip into the still waters
If you like nature and lush vegetation, then this is quite the ideal place to go. You can enjoy a cool dip at the base of the waterfalls and is a renowned place for families who come here for picnics and gatherings. Because it is one of the most easily accessible places of recreation in the state, it can get very crowded at peak seasons, particularly on weekends.
