Lata Iskandar
Lata Iskandar is a waterfall along the trunk road from Tapah to Cameron Highlands, located about 25-km before Ringlet. The waterfall cascades over several tiers of granite slopes, with the last drop at 25 meters high flowing into a small pool below, before resuming its journey as a narrow stream. On weekends, the waterfall is overrun by tourists and local visitors.

They congregate tightly under the cold shower of the falls, or perch themselves for photos along its rocky ledges. Ramshackle shops and stalls, nestled along the main road facing Lata Iskandar, provide shopping opportunities for ethnic souvenirs, tribal handicrafts, strange herbs, tropical fruits and even aphrodisiacs.

ESPERIENZA DA MIGLIORARE
Monica_V, 14-08-2022
Il ns driver è stato gentilissimo e professionale ed é stato l 'unica nota positiva perché per il resto è davvero organizzato male. Lr uniche visite che nica valgano la pena sono Batu Caves e Cameron Valley Tea, perché il resto è solo una trovata commerciale per spingere il turista ad acquistare prodotti locali inoltre andrebbero suddivisi meglio i tempi di fermata nei posti e bisognerebbe anche accordarsi con le altre agenzie per recarsi nei posti perché abbiamo fatto 1 ora di coda per fare 3km di macchina
