Langkawi, known as The Jewel of Kedah, is fast becoming a globally recognised tourism hotspot because of her incredible tropical beauty encompassing rich rainforests and pristine beaches. Due to the increasing boom in tourism there are many Langkawi resorts for you to choose from such as the Berjaya Langkawi Resort. Langkawi’s biggest attractions will always be centred around her natural splendour, and one of the most defining examples is Telaga Tujuh, also known as the Seven Wells Waterfall.
Waterfalls rarely get as picturesque as this. This natural phenomenon is labelled the Seven Wells due to seven particular bodies that have formed at various levels along the flowing water. The total height of this aquatic wonder measures at ninety-one metres and the first pool is the bottom itself. If you’d like to obtain a panoramic view of the waterfall in all her glory, the way to do so is through a cable-car ride commencing from the nearby Oriental Village.
Should you prefer to experience the incredible waterfall firsthand, then there are only two ways to do so. You can procure a ride to the car park located at the base of the waterfall, and then take the walking path almost to the top of the waterfall. The path ends at a flight of steps. To make it all the way to the top, you must climb the six-hundred-plus steps which is sure to be a gruelling effort. The climb however is incredibly scenic and will take you through the heart of the Mount Mat Cincang’s rainforest. You are guaranteed to encounter a number of beautiful creatures along the way, especially some of the island’s stunning bird species. In addition to birds you could have chance encounters with Giant Squirrels or Macaque Monkeys. Should you reach the top the views will prove to be beyond worth the climb. If you’re in Bangkok, be sure to visit the Seven Wells.
