Telaga Tujuh is one of the gorgeous waterfalls in Langkawi.
If you take a cable car ride to the top of Gunung Mat Chincang - you can see the breathtaking view of Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls. There are seven waterfalls that flow from one into the other and create seven pools on the face of the hill.
The swift flowing water has smoothed the rock surfaces over the years.
The water slides beautifully from one pool to another - finally cascading 90 metres down into the seventh pool.
The waterfalls are indeed so magnificent.
It is said that fairies were unable to resist the charm and made it their bathing place.
A couple of plants growing around the pools are said to have been left behind by the fairies.
You can go to Telaga Tujuh by car, motorbike or taxi.
Take a short climb to the top of the falls. It will only take about 45 minutes.
You can see so many things created by nature as you make your way through the rainforest.
Watch out also for some delightful & playful long-tailed macaque monkeys and the giant cream coloured squirrel that are well known in these parts.
You may even catch a glimpse of a hornbill hanging out of the treetops - with its huge hooked orange beak it is considered the most unique of all Malaysian birds. Listen carefully and you'll be able to make out the cackle-like call that it makes.
How about having a diving competition with the local kids ? Sounds fun, eh ...
