Air Terjun Temurun

Located in Datai Bay area, Temurun is a three tier Waterfall and the cumulative drop of the falls is about 200 meters. This is the tallest waterfall in Langkawi. The water stream flows down the northern slope of Mount Mat Cincang. The rocks here comprises mainly of sandstone & shale, and is over 500 million years old.

From the car park at the main road, the first tier is only a short distance away (about 5 minutes walk). The paved walk way is quite romantic and through the rain forest of Mount Mat Cincang. It’s a gradual way up although some steps are steeper than the others. There is a railing on one side in most parts of the path way. Along the way there are several gazebos to take rest and soak in the nature all around.

One thing you will surely find are the macaque monkeys in plenty, all along up to the upper tier of the falls. But don’t feed them. They are wild and can get aggressive if you try to feed them (because they may expect more) or disturb them. Otherwise they are usually harmless.

You will also find many butterflies, birds and small animals like squirrels along the way. Often the locals come to this place for picnics. The gazebos with seating arrangements are ideal for that. That is when you may find the place getting dirty with plastic bottles, packets and wastes thrown all around. This happens more because of the monkeys joining the party.
