Welcome to Taman Eko-Rimba Lata Kinjang (Lata Kinjang Eco Park), a small and quaint little park with a cascading waterfall to complete the ambience, located within the vicinity of the small and quiet town of Tapah.

Origin of The Name
The signboard in Bahasa Malaysia, narrating the origin of the name Lata Kinjang. As suspected, it all came from the British who mispronounced ‘Kijang’, a member of the deer family, as ‘Kinjang’. (@ all rights reserved)

Yes, the very same town of Tapah that my wife and I were heading to when we decided to traversed the Banjaran Titiwangsa (Titiwangsa Range) and along the way, came across the beautiful and cool cascading waterfalls of Lata Iskandar.

We admitted that we took a gamble when we decided to make the visit to Lata Kinjang, not knowing what to expect when we finally get there.

But it was worth the visit, as the sight of water cascading down the hills and rushing downstream is by itself, mesmerizing and beautiful to behold, prompting even the most amateur of photographers to take snapshots of the scenery at site.

Even if it was with the use of a camera phone.

Word from my Perak friends, there are more of the same in the neighbourhood. If only they could give me the list of places to visit, as they promised.
