Temurun Waterfall Langkawi Back Then

Waterfalls have always been my favourite getaway to cool off and relax. Langkawi is fortunate to have quite a few good ones especially when the wet season arrives. The ones that are easily accessible by all are Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells Waterfall), Durian Perangin Waterfall and Temurun Waterfall.

Seven Wells Waterfall and Durian Perangin Waterfall had already received great human impact and had turned too commercialised. Temurun Waterfall remains my favourite spot as compared to those two ones. Even though Temurun Waterfall has man made pathway beside the river, its dramatic three tiers with cumulative height of about 200 meter made Temurun the tallest waterfall in Langkawi. Its geological significant would be the formation of late Cambrian (510-490 million years ago) of thickly bedded sandstone, with minor siltstone and shale that belongs to the Langkawi Machincang Geoforest park.

Allow me to rewind some scenes of Temurun Waterfall back then.


Back in 2005, I recalled the three crazy cyclists would cycled all the way from Kuah town for more than 40 kilometers to get there.
