Lata Lembu Recreational Forest, Kedah


Lata Lembu Recreational Forest is a protected forest in Sik District, Kedah. It is 16 km from the town of Sik. The forest is quite remote, as there is no access road for vehicular traffic. Entering it involves making a 5-km track through the jungle from Lata Mengkuang.

The Lata Lembu recreational forest is a favourite spot for camping and bird watching. It is located at an elevation of between 400-500 meters above sea level, and is covered with highland dipterocarp forest.

Lata Lembu is also the name of the waterfall in the forest. It is 30 meters in height, and cascades over the rocks to a picnic spot at the bottom. The site got its name from a rock formation at the bottom of the waterfall that resembles a cow.

Getting there

Exit the North-South Expressway at the Gurun Interchange, Exit 173. Take State Route K10. Pass Sik town. Thereafter pass Peranginan Sik Recreational Forest. Lata Mengkuang Recreational Forest is on your left. To reach Lata Lembu, park at Lata Mengkuang and track 5-km through the forest path.
