Never know there is such nice waterfall hidden in nuang, and i thought there is only one Lata Berembun (Lata Berembun Waterfall 4WD Expedition @ Pahang) which is in Raub, Pahang. Got a chance to join the team to seek for the “dry” trail which can skip the river crossing that you need to go through by using common trail to Lata Bomoh Ali. This trail will brought us straight to the pool above Lata Bomoh Ali that will lead us to Lata Berembun.
Here is a brief on how to reach Lata Berembun: follow Pangsun trail -> passed by 3.1km hut -> estimate another 10 minutes walk -> there is Durian tree with marking (hard to notice) -> trail is not obvious and maybe hidden if cover up by grass -> follow the trail -> walk around 5-7 minutes, there will be a junction that looks like this “>-” , dont go straight through “>-“, take a u-turn like to “>” -> after 10 minutes you will see the pool which is above Lata Bomoh Ali -> you have to swim and grab at the side rock cliff (read following) to the lata berembun
You can see the location of Lata Berembun as stated on the image above, quite a distance from the entry, estimate junction (not obvious, as image below) to the waterfall trail is around 4km from the entry. Here is the reference for my movescount captured by Suunto ambit: move27144727
The marker that made by previous visitor, it is not obvious have to pay attention to seek for it. Click here for a larger pic: #IMGP2692
The marker was made on the Durian trees as image above, not far away from bamboo area (lots of bamboo area along the trail though). For a better idea on locations of waterfalls, check out this #selfdrawnmap on this blogpost “The Shaman Ali’s Fall (Lata Bomoh Ali)”
Rarely seen flower/plants nearby the entry of the waterfall trail from “never ending road”.
The actual Lata Bomoh Ali pool.
As image above, this is the only way you can access to the hidden waterfall, Lata Berembun. Note that the pool is very deep, advise to bring life jacket, rope, experienced swimmers and someone that been there before to guide, if you really want to take the risk to go through it.
Not manage to carry my camera over Lata Berembun waterfall, and this is what it looks like to go through, #pic by Jeffrey Lee, and this is how the Lata Berembun waterfall looks like #pic by CL Chong. A very nice hidden waterfall that you will be surprise, surrounded with rock cliffs that will produce echoes when you talk louder.
A group photo before leaving the nice waterfall.
Abandoned hydro power station on the other side, it took us around 20 minutes from the split of “never ending road”
There is a small stream beside, it is a bathing spot for locals as told by our team captain.
The old mini hydro power station was build on long time ago on year 1927.
a look inside of the station, creepy.

Ordered a very nice traditional dessert named “文头雪” before going back, located in front of Multicare Health Pharmacy Batu 9 Cheras. For more pictures on the trip, head to this Flickr set: Lata Bomoh Ali + Lata Berembun @ Hulu Langat.
