Langkawi is undoubtedly renowned for its beaches and duty-free alcoholic drinks, but if you are in for a nature exploration, Seven Wells Waterfall is absolutely worthy to be listed in your itinerary. Touted as the island’s most beautiful waterfall, the name “Seven Wells” was translated from “Telaga Tujuh”, referring to seven wells from seven different falls in Mount Mat Cinchang. Seven Wells Waterfall even has its own folklore, as legend says that it used to be the home for fairies while the water itself contains healing properties as well.
If you are a self-proclaimed adventure geek, brace yourself and get your muscles worked out to climb around 600 steps to the top for a panoramic view of Pantai Kok and Burau Bay. Be rewarded with the sights of magnificent flora and fauna along the steep climb, including macaques monkeys and giant squirrels along the journey. If you are lucky enough, you might stand a chance to catch a glimpse of majestic hornbills resting themselves on tree branches. Rest assured as you may opt for a short walk up the service road to reach the bottom of the falls if you are not fond of climbing.
Reaching the peak of waterfall makes the journey worthwhile as visitors can opt to soak themselves in for a refreshing bath to cure themselves from all the sore climbing. You can see a plethora of lime plants or a type of climbing foliage named Sintuk that grow in abundance and encircled within the waterfall area. Feast on the sight of the captivating view of cascades streaming currents down the rocks as you swim around the gushing waters, or even take photos to preserve the fascinating waterfall sight while you are at it.
While venturing up the top of the waterfall is exhilarating, do take it slow in this 1 hour journey and take rests in between while immersing yourself in serene nature along the way. Be careful of the slippery rocks as well as macaques which are unlikely to be aggressive unless provoked, but it is advised to keep a tab of your belongings from them. Do keep in mind that the best time to see the waterfall is around monsoon season or approximately the end of the year as a means to avoid the dry season. If you are the type of person who just can’t get enough of pristine natures, do make a visit to Seven Wells Waterfalls. With a driving distance of 20 minutes or 12.4 km from The Smith House, it is certainly worth a relaxing getaway.
