Durian Perangin Waterfalls - Langkawi, Malaysia.

 The main attraction of Durian Perangin Waterfalls is the attractive 14-tier waterfall that cascades down from the slopes of nearby Gunung Raya. The unique rock formation found around this area makes the place suitable for picnics and relaxing dips in the cool, clear water. Every tier of the waterfall has its own natural attributes which makes these natural pools unique.

This waterfall is located on the northern slope of Gunung Raya, the highest mountain of Langkawi. Still, the water flow is seasonal and the fall can best be visited during the rainy season (September-October). Access is easy and clearly signposted

The durians in "Durian Perangin" waterfalls are dropping at its peak. It will be all over in a week or so. I should camped overnight determined not to miss out...heheh! 

My Precious....Durian! 

The Durian Perangin Waterfall is one such natural geological beauty on this mystical .
This waterfall is considered a great picnic spot by the locals and is regarded as the “third easiest” waterfall on the island.

We spent for few hours there.We saw lots of durian tree and got it for free!

The Durian Perangin area houses a wide variety of flora and fauna such as this money plant creepers.

In Malaysia, the rambutan generally fruits twice a year, the first, main crop in June and a lesser one in December.You can bought it for only RM2 a kilo.
