Did you know about Sungai Sendat???

Sungai Sendat is a waterfall at the back of Ulu Yam Bharu, accessible by a small narrow road that leads through rubber estates and secondary forest. These cascading waterfalls are a delight to those who find them as they are great for picnicking, paddling and swimming. The 4km road is tarred but once it reaches a certain point becomes a dirt track full or rocks and holes.

Fortunately, it'a a short distance before reaching the main park at the right turn. Sungai Sendat Amenity Forest is placed in Batang Kali Reserve Forest (Hutan Simpan Batang Kali), Hulu Selangor.
