Chiling Waterfall is one of the most beautiful and impressive waterfalls in Selangor. To get there you need to walk for about an hour and wade across the Chiling River five times so you need to have a sense of adventure and not mind getting wet. When you finally reach the waterfall (actually three falls) it is well worth the effort.
Chiling Waterfall is located in a reserve called the Sungai Chiling Fish Sanctuary, a fisheries research project run by the Selangor State Fisheries Department
HOW TO GET THERE:
The entrance is on the road from Kuala Kubu Baharu to The Gap/Fraser’s Hill. Shortly after passing the Selangor Dam and reservoir you will cross a small steel bridge over the Chiling River. There is a parking area just after the bridge and the entrance is on the right side of the road. This location is marked on the map on my Top Selangor Attractions page.
After a short walk you reach the rangers’ office where you need to register and pay the entrance fee of RM1 per person. A notice there warns visitors that they must also sign out in the register on their return which should be before 5.30pm. If it starts raining during your visit you must return immediately as the river and waterfalls are dangerous in rainy weather.
There are toilets and a campsite here and a map giving an idea of what is in store. Warning: the map is not to scale and is misleading.
The first river crossing is by means of a recently constructed suspension bridge. Strict rules have been introduced: after the bridge camping, fishing, making fires, etc is no more allowed. A good idea, in the past several fatal accidents have occured with flash-flooding. Hopefully the rangers will be able to maintain the place.
An easy and clear trail.
Crossing a river.
Six river crossing in total.
Finally, after Crossing 6, your first glimpse of Chiling Waterfall comes into view. There is a large pool at the foot of waterfall which is suitable for swimming (with caution).
Isn’t that a spectacular view?
This is an interesting trek and a beautiful fall. But accidents have happened here, due to flash-flooding. Don’t make this trip in adverse weather conditions! The river will become impassable when the water level is too high. Access to the Chiling falls is limited to weekends only (Fri, Sat, Sun), because of ongoing research by the Selangor fisheries department. If public holidays fall outside the weekend, access will in general not be possible. Stay safe and have a blast!
