Situated in Hulu Langat district, the Sungai Gabai Waterfalls are part of Taman Warisan Negeri Selangor (Selangor State Park).

Walk aross streams with the aid of wooden and concrete bridges and reach the peak of the multi-cascade waterfalls via a flight of cement stairs located adjacent to the falls. Along the way up are gazebos, where picnics may be enjoyed as you are surrounded by the thunderous roars of the gushing water and beautiful sights of the forest.

At the top is a cooling reward where another cascade and pool awaits. Continue past the end of the stairs to follow the river upstream or walk along the forest path just next to the river to find more pools to wade in.

Although Sungai Gabai is smaller compared to Sungai Congkak, it does offer great views making it a good spot for photography. There is also a small indigenous people village nearby called Kampung Orang Asli Sungai Gabai, as well as the Lepoh Waterfalls about half an hour’s drive away.

How to get to Air Terjun Sungai Gabai

Sungai Gabai is about an hour’s drive from the capital. It is easy to spot signboards to Sungai Gabai as you arrive in Hulu Langat town, which can be accessed via Cheras/Ampang. The waterfalls begin just meters from the entrance and carpark area.

By bus
Board bus T406 from Suntex MRT station in Cheras and alight at Kampung Sungai Pagoh or Sekolah Agama Jalan Sungai Lui.

By train

Notice: Always remember that waterfalls can be dangerous – swim at your own risk. Families are advised to stay near the bottom of the waterfall, close to the entrance. There are picnic areas and swimming pools at the top of the stairs/peak of the waterfall but at places the drop into the waterfall is not properly fenced off and this could be a hazard to younger children or the elderly. Avoid freshwater streams or waterfalls especially when you have cuts or abrasions. Bring proper equipment if you plan to go hiking.
