Templer Park - Places to Visit in Kuala Lumpur
Destinations and Sights - Outskirts of Kuala Lumpur



Situated at the fringes of Kuala Lumpur, Templer's park is a 1,214 hectares of forest reserve rich in natural wilderness. Established by the British during the colonial years, it is named after Sir Gerald Templer, a colonial administrator,. The park is a 1,200-hectare (3,000-acre) section of Malaysian jungle where visitors have the chance to explore trails, swim in the pools and relax by waterfalls.

Consisting of lowland forests and a five-kilometre limestone ridge with abundant birdlife, there are waterfalls, jungle trails and a natural pool with a 740-metre hill, the park attracts nature lovers, bird watchers, jungle trekkers, photographers and picnickers.




Offering a picturesque setting with a towering attraction near its edge, namely the million-year-old limestone hill Bukit Takun, The Kanching Waterfalls, also known as the Templer Park Falls, are found here. For most visitors, the attraction here is the gushing waters of the waterfall. Sheltered picnic spots and changing areas are provided and walkways have been built where necessary to ensure safety.




Waterfalls and streams feed the thriving vegetarian here. Soft mosses cover the forest floor and huge ferns grow as epiphytes, while matured trees form soaring canopies. Various forms of wildlife such as monkeys, birds and numerous species of insects can be found here.



NOTE
Located 21km (13 miles) north of Kuala Lumpur
Bring along a change of clothes, swimwear, insert repellent and a pair of binoculars if you are into bird watching. Wear suitable shoes as the around the waterfall can be slippery
