The Puteri Fall itself is more a cascade, about 60 meter tall. As the cascade is curved, it is not really possible to get a complete view of it. At the top of the cascade there is another small fall, with a nice swimming pool. The cemented walkway ends here, and the real climbing of the mountains starts.

Exit from NS Highway thru Tangkak exit, turn right at the traffic light after the toll. Drive straight at all the junction, you’ll drive through Tangkak town. Soon you’ll find both of the roadside are oil palm plantation. Turn left into the junction when you see this board.

The Pelepah falls are a series of falls and cascades, depending on how you count, there are about twelve tiers. The hike is very pleasant, some of the tiers have a nice pool, some or more cascades. The many tree trunks show that after heavy rain these falls will be powerful, and as you basically trekking in a ravine, be careful about flash-flooding.

The Pelepah waterfalls are located not far from Kota Tinggi and quite popular with Singaporeans. The trail head is located just before the entrance to the well-known Kota Tinggi falls. The easiest way in would be through a palm-oil plantation, but it is not clear if the guards will let you pass. A better way is to cross the bridge over the Kiri Pelepah river and then pass an opening in the fence. Basically you should follow more or less the river until you have passed the plantation. After you have left the plantation and entered the jungle, the trail is easy to follow.
