Kesyar Falls Eco Sanctuary Camping Trip ~ Bukit Tinggi , Pahang Malaysia
Set in the hills of Bukit Tinggi, just an hour drive towards Genting Sempah and exiting the old Bentong road, we'll find ourselves in a secluded base camp that lays hidden and unknown even to the locals of nearby towns. Entering from a small gate by the road to a safe parking area, this privately owned site can be found by walking through an orchard filled with durians and other local fruits.
Located on a property that spans 8 acres and just within minutes away of walking downhill from the camp, get ready to enjoy the rushing 20-meter waterfall. Surrounded by lush jungle, spend the night being lulled by the sound of the river flowing and trust to be entertained by the orchestra of the jungle night.
This adventure comes with options of either sleeping in jungle gazebos, stringing up hammocks or pitching up tents around the camp site. This is a great opportunity for couples with children and those unfamiliar with jungle camping to experience what Mother Nature has to offer up close. The facilities includes piped water, toilets and showers, and meals can be enjoyed outdoors or have them in the open-concept rustic kitchen cum dining hall that is also available here.
*OPTIONAL BELOW (As the waterfall below is open to public, it's usually crowded especially during public and school holidays)
With an option of extending the adventure, after spending a night enjoying the peaceful and private camp site, we can take a short drive to a famous nearby waterfall, Lata Hammer or its original name Lata Perting. Named after the river that flows through it, Sungai Perting, we will walk a trail for about 40 minutes. Once there, we will have a picnic lunch on a sandy beach unique only to this waterfall and swim in the big pool that encloses it.

WHAT'S INCLUDED AND WHAT'S NOT?
Kesyar Falls Eco Sanctuary was built to cater for anyone that would love to experience jungle camping, but by only leaving a few comforts of home. As we have a close relationship with the owners, we know how passionate they are and would like nothing more for others to experience what this place has to offer.
Having said that, this trip is highly customizable for those who might be thinking of bringing their kids along to experience with them.
Things To Bring AlongLight cotton long sleeve and short sleeve tshirts, shorts and long pants (Whites, greys, browns and earthy coloured clothing to blend into the jungle), swimwear, underwear, long socks, raincoat or poncho, one pair of sandals or flip flops (the cheapest you can buy) for easy walking ; one pair of shoes with good grip(Rubber Slipper or River Sandals or Lace-Up Shoes) for jungle treks.
Creature Comforts ~ towel, toilet paper, soap / facial wash, shampoo, toothbrush / toothpaste
Bag Packing ~ waterproof bag or separate your belongings and bundle them in a few small plastic bags before stuffing all in the master bag; keep important documents, passports, cash, wallets and electronic gadgets in zip-lock bags; garbage bag for waterproofing; a plastic bag for soiled clothes.
- Straps to secure your glasses - if you wear glasses
- Goggles - if you wear contact lenses
- Plastic bags for your wet clothes
Essentials to get you through ~ personal medication, mosquito repellent, sunblock lotion, heat rub for muscles ache, Torchlight, ear plugs or cotton balls (for those who can sleep with the TV blasting and not when its sound of nature that punctuates the night's silence), water bottle, minimum 2 liters capacity. Bring your own sleeping bag or bed sheets if you are fussy about cleanliness.
This is the jungle at it's most pristine. It can get hot and muggy and then there could be a thunderstorm in the next instance. And which ever way, your clothes will take forever to dry. Nights can get a little chilly especially during the rainy season. And when the rains come, leeches are aplenty. The jungle is unforgiving and yet it is so enchanting, it may sometimes leave you breathless. The monsoon season (November - February) may bring a lot of rain and create havoc especially when the river swells and banks burst, leaving people stranded in villages for days even weeks, landslides, mudslides ~ all sorts of nature's catastrophes. Trekking in the jungle in the rain is not the best experience. Quite often, by the end of the trek, you find yourself all bloodied by leech bites. We strongly advise against travel to Taman Negara during the monsoons.
We might be off in the forest or jungles of Southeast Asia,but if you have any inquiries or any questions at all be it
