Kota Tinggi Waterfall Resort is located within the Gunung Panti Recreational Forest in Johor. It is a popular attraction among locals, although occasionally you do see some Singaporean tourists visiting the place on long weekends.
Of course, this was before the pandemic.
There are actually two waterfalls here. The bigger one stands at 36m and is located further in the forest; the smaller waterfall is just near the park entrance. Both falls can be easily accessed via a walkway.
You can swim or wade in both pools as they are not too deep, but plunging into it from a higher platform is not advisable as you could injure yourself. The currents can also get too strong during rainy seasons, so be wary of that.
The resort has a 80m-long water slide that leads to one of the pools, which is great for kids. You can rent a tube to ride on or bring your own.
Birdwatchers will also love this place as there are many different species to discover. Hiking trails are aplenty too so do bring proper shoes if you’re planning to do a walkabout.
Admission to the resort is RM5 for Malaysian adults, RM3 for Malaysian senior citizens and children aged between six and 11, and RM2 for children aged between three and five.
It is open daily from 8am to 6pm. However, the property is currently undergoing some upgrading and maintenance works, but you can always plan for a visit here once they reopen.
This resort is located about 15km from Kota Tinggi town and 60km from Johor Baru. If you are coming from the North South Expressway, look out for the Kulai exit. From there, take the Kota Tinggi-Kluang road and go on the Jalan Lombong trunk road, after which you will need to drive for about an hour before reaching your destination.
