Lolo Falls – Kuala Lumpur

A few weeks ago Kerrie and I took a hike to Lolo Falls.  This was pitched as a moderate one hour hike along the river near Gunung Nuang. Instead it became a 3 hour hike of steep trails.

It was not too tough, more that we were prepared for something not as challenging and in the end the falls were very small but with a cool pool to soak in before returning.

 

The start of the hike was at the Ranger Station for Gunung Nuang, Hulu Langat – Gunung Nuang is the highest mountain in Selangor at 1493m. It is located a Hulu Langat.  A normal walking pace will take 8 to 9 hours to reach the summit and normally people will camp near Lolo overnight before proceeding to the summit.

There are regular rest stops and so you know exactly how far you have come and how far you have to go.

For the majority of the walk you are on a well maintained path / road. It is only the last kilometre that it becomes a true hiking and jungle trail.

    I think you end up at the wrong waterfall. The waterfall in your picture is not the same as those shown in the Lolo Falls link that you have provided. In the link, it says in the article, Bomoh Ali and Berembun Falls.

    To clarify, the waterfall that you show is indeed Lolo Falls, but the link to Lolo Falls are actually showing Bomoh Ali and Berembun Falls.

      Hi Han, that would explain why the explanation on the link says it is only an hour while we found it to be 3 hours and moderate going as along a road. As per my blog we did Lolo falls but as you said the link must be another fall even though the heading on the link says Lolo.

    Hi, so just to confirm. 3 hours hike to Lolo Falls? How is the trail like(I’m a regular and fit hiker)? Easy to get lost?

      Hi – When we did in late 2013 we were expecting more a jungle trail along the river which is how others ad described it. But that trail was no longer and so the hike was along a dirt 4WD style road. So track was good just steep at times and so can be slippery. Also meant a lot of up and down. If you are fit it is easy to do in under 3 hours…Kerrie is fit but just not quick walker. It is not possible to get lost given the track is now a small road.
