My trip to Kuala Woh Recreational Forest (Hutan Lipur Kuala Woh) is a continuation of my long standing list of waterfalls and natural recreational parks in Perak to visit.

To give you a rough idea of its location, the park is along Jalan Pahang, that stretches from Tapah to Ringlet, Cameron Highlands. Turn right when you see Sekolah Kebangsaan Batu Tujuh (7th milestone) on your left. It is then a short drive to the entrance of the park.

It was raining cats and dogs when I arrived, but it couldn’t be helped as Sunday was the only day I could pry myself away from my desk. Also, I had thought that after a night of rain, it would let up, but it did not. Anyway, the planned road trip had to go on.

There were a few families there as well for picnic but I guess it would be way more crowded if not for the wet weather.

Do take precaution when entering the river (Sungai Batang Padang) or hot springs. There is always a risk of contracting communicable diseases. Besides, stay alert for flash floods (kepala air) gushing down from the summit of the hills, which could cause drowning.
