Jeriau Waterfalls @ Fraser’s Hill

jeriau waterfalls

Jeriau Waterfalls is an incredible experience – imagine the cold hill resort temperature combined with the wind chill factor and a natural waterfall that isn’t heated (obviously). Intense. I couldn’t stop shivering. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s on the GPS but don’t follow that – ask your resort concierge instead. I brought my Sony Cyber-shot TX-5 along coz it’s waterproof. It’s just a 15 minute drive from Ye Olde Smokehouse where we stayed and the GPS will attempt to take you down a road that you shouldn’t access. It’s a feeder road.

Stop at the Jeriau Waterfalls gate (there are lots of cars parked so you won’t miss it) and it’s a 5 minute walk to the falls. Wikitravel says it’ a 15 minute walk but by my account it’s 5 minutes and we stopped to take interesting photos…

…like this hut which has an ecosystem of itself on top of the roof. My travel companion spotted this one. Perhaps the company was good so it seemed shorter so YMMV (pun intended) but be careful coz some spots are slippery. >.<

Jeriau Waterfalls is fucking cold. There is no other adjective to describe it. It’s as cold as a frigid bitch brimming with hatred, carrying enough emotional baggage that would cause even AirAsia to decline her wishes to pay 100 times the excess baggage fee.

Did I put you off? smirk

Don’t be, coz it’s worth the trip. Sure, the water isn’t clean. FML I swallowed a mouthful of water and I nearly puked. The spray from the waterfall, the wind chill and the mist at Fraser’s Hill – it’s unforgettable.

  2. Michelle Chin: Heh! Normal waterfalls are not that cold though, this one is cold coz it’s up in the highlands. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Where do you usually camp? In the UK you mean? Or over here?
    rocket: I’m pretty sure it’s the soil mate. There are branches and leaves too so it’s some kind of sediment. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I accidentally swallowed a mouthful and it was horrible.
    The Jeriau Waterfalls are nice though – highlands with very very cold water. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I visited this place about 2 years ago. The water was cold but the air temperature was mild. I think the color of the water is caused by the sendiments. It is not polluted since there are no factories. FH is not heavily populated too.
    I saw a group of Malays with their speed bikes going up. There is a nangka tree at the bottom of the entrance gate.

  5. Meng: Yeah, I don’t know where the sediments come from, there is some kind of runoff at the start of the trail. It was really cold when we went there. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Freezing really, the water. :S
    Shimmers999: Thanks! But how come no one found my analogy about the cold funny? T___T

  6. KY: Unfortunately, we drank all the vodka in the first day. :S
    I underestimated the drinking capacity of my travel buddy.
    Good idea though. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Shimmers999: No it was really good. T_T
    The frigid bit one. Okay, maybe I am not so good in the humor department. ๐Ÿ™

  7. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  13. I’m having some difficulty trying to load your blog. I have read it many times before and never gotten something like this, but now when I try to load something it just takes a little while (4-11 minutes ) and then just stops. I’ve tried with www or not. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

  14. 9/11 needs to be investigated. You’ll find as well a great many Main issues with the improbable โ€œOfficial Conspiracy Theoryโ€. I suggest reading some books on the 1001 difficulties for the โ€œOfficial Conspiracy theoryโ€ and only then determine for your self. I read the books and I no longer believe that the US Govt and their self serving propaganda apparatus (Corporate Media)!!!
