Templer Park

The pool which you will encounter after a hike of 15 minutes from the base of the park.

If you want to hike to the waterfall which is a further 40 minutes away, follow the signage.

It has an area of about 1200 hectares and is about 7 km away from the town of Rawang. This park was named after Sir Gerald Templer who was the British High Commissioner to Malaya in the 1950s.

This place is good for jungle hiking, picnic and dipping yourselves in the pool at the base of the park. Do not expect too much facilities or maintenance. Basic toilet and bathing facilities are available at the place where you park your cars.

Hiking up to the pool takes about 15 minutes. If you are adventurous, you may want to hike a further 40 minutes to the waterfalls.

Take note that certain stretches of the paths are hidden by the undergrowth of this tropical rainforest. Always use the river as a guide. It is always better to go as a group or at least in twos in the event of emergency.

Remember to bring a bottle of water, sun lotion, a cap, insect repellent, proper hiking shoes and camera before going deeper into the jungle. Inform the person in charge of the park of your intention to hike deeper into the jungle. You will definitely sweat as the weather is usually humid and hot.

Some bamboo you will encounter on your way to the waterfalls.
