Tekala Falls is located Hulu Langat, 43 km away from south of Kuala Lumpur. It is a part of Taman Warisan Negeri Selangor. This waterfall is a very popular place for visitors to have picnic alongside the river and bathe in its cool crystal clear water. The pristine rainforest is also a favourite hiking spot for the hikers.
The park is managed by the Forestry Department of Selangor. It is very well maintained and well taken care of. The path towards the falls are cemented so its easier and safe for the visitors to walk on.
The river is shallow and safe for children to bathe in. The water is cool and clear. The fresh air from oxygen-rich forest was a joy to breathe. The waterfalls on the other are not high and view is just stunning. There are three known tiers that can be accessed. However, the visitors still need to be cautious because the slippery rocks can still be dangerous.
The changing huts and and the gazebos are placed everywhere for the visitors convenience.

Anyway, The whole way to the waterfall is semen pavement/ pathway so is safe.... Not like the usual muddy and sandy pathway where it is damn dangerous and harder to walk...
We had so much fun at the Waterfall!
The water was freezing cold, yet our laughter, excitement and craziness warmed us.
We brought some food there to picnic.
After playing, everyone grabbed the food like July's hungry ghosts...

There is an entrance fee of RM1 per person and on a fasting month, we were surprised to find that the streams were actually full of people.
At the park entrance, I spotted a Portia jumping spider and went to work on it with my Canon MPE-65 macro lens.We later hiked about 2km to the peak of the Tekala falls.
Nuang mountain is the nearest mountain to Kuala Lumpur. Gunung Nuang is a popular training spot for hikers to prepare themselves before challenging other higher mountains.
