Durian Perangin Waterfall Langkawi Kedah Malaysia
This 14 tier waterfall is truly a sight to behold and is accessible after a short trek to through the rain forest. It is a quiet place with freshness in its being.

Also on your way you’ll find many monkeys who are kind of mischievous so it’s better to take care of your belongings while you trek up.

After struggling for almost 5 hours we arrived at Hutan Mati, literally translate to English as The Dead Forest. The Dead Forest is a striking grey and white area filled by dead trees from the effect of the Papandayan Mountain eruption in 2002. As a result of the eruption, the Nangklak crater wall collapsed and caused the Cibeureum Gede River to be filled with the avalanche material. This caused severe flooding at that time. Seeing the Dead Forest does takes you to another world. The striking black color of the tree branches and light grey ground filled with sulfur, made this area surreal. Views like this are not encountered every day; it can be seen in professional photos or paintings but rarely in real life. Yet, here I was, in awe of the view.
