Lata Mengkuang Waterfall, Kedah







Lata Mengkuang (GPS: 5.86065, 100.83638) is a forest reserve and waterfall in Sik District, Kedah. It is located within the Rimba Teloi Forest Reserve, about 11 km from the town of Sik. The Lata Mengkuang Recreational Forest is a lowland dipterocarp forest located at an elevation of 200 meters above sea level. The recreational area is along a one-kilometer stretch of Sungai Chepir, which cascades over rocks, making it an ideal place for swimming and picnicking.

Lata Mengkuang itself is the name of the 20-meter tall waterfall in the area. From the Lata Mengkuang Recreational Forest, it is possible to make a 5-km track through the jungle to the Lata Lembu Recreational Forest.
