Secret waterfall in Klang Valley - these are right words that correctly described the series of waterfall in Ulu Kemensah. Located in the jungle behind Zoo Negara, Ulu Klang.

On 10 May 2008, the team of 6 lead by Apip of Lafuma set out for a leisure trip to Kemensah Waterfall. Early morning, Chew, Englebert and Melissa ready in front Lafuma boutique at Bangsar. The other two members, loving husband and wife, Mardiah and Khairul waiting us at nearby Zoo Negara.

We drive thru Kg. Kemensah until the end of the road and park our car there. We start trekking at 10:30am after a short briefing and ice-breaking session. As a small group trekker we walk closed to each other.
