Visit the mighty Seven Wells Waterfall of Langkawi

Seven Wells Waterfall 1

Telaga Tujuh, as the Seven Wells Waterfall is locally known, is the occurrence of seven wells that go on to overflow into each other, almost like seven natural infinity pools combined to give birth to one big waterfall. Located a short trip from Langkawi town centre, this collection of pools will take you back to your childhood days, when pools of water meant slides and swimming.

How to get there

Like all things good, to truly enjoy the splendour of the waterfalls you have to work a little and walk up till the top, but be assured all that exercise is worth it all once you reach the top and slide into the higher pools. The walk to the top is gorgeous in itself and allows you to walk through the rainforest and experience the beauty of the place up close.

After almost an hour of climbing, you will be able to admire the work of nature, as the rocks have been polished and smoothed by the flowing stream of water to form a slide into the pools. After all that climbing and trekking, you won’t be able to resist sliding into one of the shallow pools for a swim and the perfect spot to just absorb the beauty of nature. While most of the view is of the surrounding flora and plant life, you can also spot the gorgeous blue waters of Buara Bay!

But here’s a word of caution when you visit this waterfalls. It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt, so be sure you take care while getting in and out of the pool, as well as on the rocks near the cliffs as they can be very slippery.

Hire a local guide from Locaguide and take his help to explore this place.

If you hope to experience everything the park has to offer, start early and carry a change of clothes with you.

Interact with the cattle and sheep at the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm, as you feed the sheep and watch them frolic in the open fields. Watching the sheep fight to eat what you offer them and the others playing and grazing in the fields is therapeutic in its own way!

Next, head to the butterfly farm that has a spectacular variety of butterflies all around, surrounded by a variety of fauna present in the park. Moreover a walk through this part of the park allows you to see butterflies of every colour imaginable and you’ll be shocked to see how large a few of them can get!
