A wonderful place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Wander through the valley surrounded by sheer cliffs a couple of hundred metres high, past quiet paddy fields and impressive waterfalls.

I and my family have visited this place on the wrong time. We couldn't enjoy the waterfall due to dry season. I suggest you to come to this place around October-February. You have to camp there.

Picturesque valley about 2hr from bukittinggi. There are impressive cliffs and two waterfalls. Watch out for weather as you might end up with trickle of water than waterfall.

They have a bunch of waterfalls, the first and second ones are commercialized, crowded and full of thrash by in responsible local tourists. Do trekking into the jungle by following the small river and eventually you will find the water source which is a nice, not crowded and beautiful waterfall.
