Vogue-U Potion - Time to be High Landers.....


May Peace Be With You
Do you recall my last post to Kota Tinggi for the attacked of the horseshoe crab dish at Mahkota Belangkas restaurant. Well, since we were already in Kota Tinggi, we decided to visit the Kota Tinggi waterfalls. As usual we set the GPS to the said destination and off we proceeded.
The waterfall is located at the outskirt of Kota Tinggi town via road to Kluang. As expected, the road would be meandering like a snake as we drove upwards towards the waterfall area. Upon reaching, we saw a gantry at the park's entrance. Initially I thought it was the parking fee booth which I considered quite normal. However we saw the signboard indicated entrance fee is also chargeable per person per entrance..... The entrance fee is charged at RM7.50 per adult (couldn't recall how much was the fee for children, probably half the adult fee I guessed). And parking fee was charged at RM3.00/vehicle.
After paying, the lady told hubby to pass the receipt to another gantry in front in order to collect our entrance passes. After passing the receipt, the other lady passed us 2 waterproof paper wristband labelled "Adult", to be worn upon entrance. I asked the lady what else to expect besides the waterfall. She smiled and answered "waterfall only". I looked at my hubby and my hubby looked back at me puzzled..... coz we didn't know whether the lady understood my question as normally when we go to any waterfall parks, there was no entrance fee incurred. Nevertheless we couldn't be bothered to ask further and drove off to search for a parking space.
Both hubby and me didn't wish to soak ourselves in the stream, so both of us just walked and enjoyed the scenery....
OK let's not waste time...... come let's enjoy the photos taken while we were there......


Visitors soaking themselves and enjoying the cooling water


Hubby feeding some freshwater carps in the waterfall pond with "chin chau" from his drink!!!




The other side of the pond after the bridge.... people enjoying a dip in the stream



And this is the attraction.... a man-made water slide (they dam up the stream in order to build the slide)





Down stream after the big slide is another snake-like water slide




The view from far......




The side road along the waterfall stream




People looking so fresh after dipping, dunking, soaking and sliding in mineral water (well that's what hubby said, natural stream or waterfall have minerals and ions in them)


And yes we met a couple from Malacca with their 2-yr old baby who detoured to Kota Tinggi after their holidays in Tioman Island and Desaru





See how active their 2-yr old toddler was..... I couldn't even take a proper photo of her...hehe

So vogue-u-ers, probably this is one of the attractions you may wish to go when you are in Kota Tinggi. You'll come back totally refresh.....huhu!!!!!
Lots of Luv... Mak Pah
