Hot & Cold at

KUALA WOH RECREATION PARK

 

Way before you reach Lata Iskandar, at the 13th km along the Jalan Tapah-Cameron Highlands, there is a huge and fast flowing stream where cool water flows down from the surrounding mountains and merge at certain parts with hot water, flowing out of rocks. Called the Kuala Woh Recreational Park, this was once the only place in the country with a caravan park but is now visited mostly by day-trippers as there are no caravans around to take advantage of the facility. However, this place is perhaps the most established waterfall recreational park in Perak with facilities for relaxation, ample camping space with allocated lots, and even chalets managed by the State Forestry Department for those wishing to stay.

 
 

The recreational park is not exactly by the main roadside as you have to turn right at an adjoining road and proceed 2km further before you get there. The place is surrounded by secondary jungle and Orang Asli villages. These villages are more established then those further up and there are schools as well. There is a huge and shady parking space and a nice tiled paths that pass through several rest shades, while hibiscus and bougainvillea bushes as well as wild trees surround the place adding to its beauty and providing shady relief. The area around the Kuala Woh Recreational Park is clean and well kept and by the sandy banks of the main stream, you may spy at Rajah Brooke butterflies in groups of 20 or more, sipping mineral from the ground.

 

The stream which is actually the youth stage of the Batang Padang river is rocky and wide, about 30m across at the area near the car park and there are adequate signs warning visitors notto get into the water during rainy weather. One other attraction at the Kuala Woh Recreational Park is a museum highlighting photographs of forest produce. A suspension bridge over the river takes visitors to the museum, which opens only from 9:00am - 4:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The recreational park has a collection of fine tropical trees that are labelled and they include the Meranti, Nyatoh, Keruing, and Merbau. These are valuable trees that are increasingly becoming scarce and in their natural state, can grow up to 80m tall. Usually crowded on weekends when people come to picnic, relax, bathe, fish, or just breathe in the lovely soothing ambiance, the Kuala Woh Recreational Park has 10 chalets where you can stay and bookings can be made through the Forestry Departments office in Tapah by calling +605 - 4011 216.
