Telaga Tujuh Seven Wells
Located around 45 kilometres from Kuah is this geological marvel. Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells Waterfall) is a spot where a freshwater stream cascades down about 90 metres via a series of seven natural pools. The climb from the lower falls becomes increasingly scenic the higher you go. The rocks can be extremely slippery, so care is needed. Legend has it that fairies used to come down to frolic and bathe in these ponds thus giving it healing powers.
Seven Wells Waterfall is a pleasant, quiet and green place located about 15-20mins walk into the forest. To see the best out of it, you have to be there at the right season. We went there during January and there wasn't much water falling down the waterfall. The best season will be when Langkawi is raining.
I urge anyone heading to the Seven Wells to comply with all safety warnings and danger signs. We unfortunately witnessed a fatality which could have been avoided. The view is beautiful but do not go over the safety rope!
The 1st fall 5-10mins climb. Good for photo snapping. Nice plunge here but lots of locals here. So, move up to 2nd fall. 15-20mins walk up. Beautiful view. Nice slide. Great retreat.
Be ready with good shoes. Be fit or take it easy climbing up.
Beware of the monkeys. They will like to go for ladies and kids. They're afraid of man, specially if you're in a group. If you're alone, do not stare into their eyes. it is as if you are challenging them. Be careful of your back-pack. They assume that there's food there. They also scavenge in rubbish bins and make the track full of rubbish.
So if you can help it, pls do not throw your rubbish in the trash cans. Bring them down with you. If you would like to do some good to the environment, Pls collect some of this plastic trash along, place them in your plastic bag and throe them in your hotel. this os better than complaining about hoe dirty they are here.
the most beautiful and refreshing place.... really peaceful early in the morning if you can take the hike and the heat at that hour but well worth it.... was only there Nov. '06 and have already booked a return journey for Nov. '07
Telaga waterfalls is the second best place in Langkawi for a wonderful view of the islands from above (the first being Langkawi cable car). The entrance to Telaga Tujuh is free but you need to watch out at the entrance as tens of monkeys are ready to attack you and steal any food or plastic bag you are carrying. Do not carry any food or any plastic bag when you go there. Make sure the taxi that took you there waits for you till you finish your round( almost 2-3 hours trip). It is very difficult to find a taxi to bring you back at the end of your trip. Usually taxi drivers take around RM 10 (USD 2.7) per hour to wait for you. It is worth it. Try to negotiate to get this rate or even a better one. This place is recommended for healthy people that are ready to climb 638 steps to reach the seven wells( yes, 638 steps!!!). You find a route that leads to the waterfalls midway of your trip. Don't miss to watch the magnificient waterfalls. Superb!!
