Located in Bentong, Pahang, you will need a car, and pair of legs for this trip, and a floating device. Camping tools as well, if you’re planning to camp. The water is freezing cold, from the hills of Genting Highland and Bukit Tinggi. The place has been a destination for waterfall lovers, and for fishing. If you’re on a fishing trip, please don’t leave the hook anywhere in the pool. We have found some strings, which could be dangerous to the others.

You can plan it for a day trip as well. Do start your journey early, as you do not want to waste more time on the road. From Kuala Lumpur, head to Kuantan, through Karak Highway, and exit at Genting Sempah exit, which is about after 15 minutes drive from Gombak toll.

The only landmark that you can notice is a small bridge. The junction is right after the bridge on your left. You can also find a resort signboard, named Perting something.
