Langkawi is pretty well endowed when it comes to waterfalls. The Seven Wells is one of the big ones everybody notices. However, there are a few less prominent falls that are still quite impressive such as the Temurun Waterfalls but they just don’t get the same attention.
On our last day in Langkawi, my boyfriend and I hired a motorbike to explore some parts of the island we hadn’t seen yet. We were actually heading towards Tanjung Rhu beach, with its idyllic sandbanks and shallow shoreline, dotted with tiny karst peak islands. We spotted these falls by accident. Noticing a sign for the Temurun falls on the roadside, we stopped to have a further look.
Some of the most memorable places I have come across, have been found in this way. Taking the time to let the path lead you, can open up some incredible experiences. I think you develop this skill over time, the ability to sniff out a place of interest. As we hadn’t known about Temurun previously, we weren’t expecting much. We certainly didn’t expect to encounter this “bounty bar ad” quality image of the towering falls tumbling to this natural swimming pool (above).
How to get to Temurun Waterfall:
Grab a taxi, hire a car or motorbike and head towards Datai Bay on the north-west of Langkawi.
