The waterfall itself is actually located inside the Sungai Chiling Fish Sanctuary.

To get there, you'll have to trek along a forest trail for about 40 to 45 minutes.

People who have visited the place noted that the trek is fairly easy but you will have to cross streams several times, so dress appropriately and bring a waterproof bag to keep your phones and keys safe.

Although the destination is great, the journey itself is pretty awesome too, so take your time and enjoy the scenic walk.

Once you arrive at the waterfall, you'll be able to swim with adorable friendly fishies!

PS: Wear a shirt while swimming to avoid fishies from nibbling on your skin.

The best part is that the admission fee is only RM1 per person.

You can even pack some food for a riverside picnic, but make sure to clean up afterwards.

Because the Sungai Chiling Fish Sanctuary is a research project run by the Selangor Fisheries Department, the place is only open to the public from Friday to Sunday.

On other days, the area is closed for maintenance.

According to GoKelah, the toilets are free and you can rent a campsite for only RM4. However, there is a refundable security deposit of RM50 or RM150 and you can get your money back if you leave the site clean.
