From Tapah heading towards Cameron Highlands, the journey will always make us dizzy. Therefore, Lata Iskandar Waterfall is always like a checkpoint before checking in to Cameron Highlands. You may just want some fresh air, some food, rushing to the toilet or simply just a stop with some good view.

Lata Iskandar Waterfall is about 20 over kilometers from Ringlet, the nearest town of Cameron Highlands from Tapah exit. Back to the old time where there is only one way linking Cameron Highlands with the outside world, Lata Iskandar had its’ glorious time. Stalls which selling souvenir along the road are full with customers during holidays and peak seasons. Since the alternative ways are available from Simpang Pulai, from Raub and from Gua Musang, visitor who go through Tapah is getting lesser. So, most of the visitor do not even know about Lata Iskandar Waterfall after their Cameron Highlands trip.

As an effort to attract more visitors, the local authority has upgraded Lata Iskandar Waterfall a few years back. After the construction, Lata Iskandar Waterfall has a better look now with the proper tiles walk ways, concrete bridge and small huts. You can now access to the waterfall at a nearer point, in an easier way!
