Talaga Waterfall Tujuh (Seven Wells Waterfall) is one of the most famous natural attractions of Langkawi, located in the northwestern part of the island, 30 kilometers from the city of Kuah. Talaga Tujuh is formed by seven streams of water that, flowing down the slopes of Mount Mat Cincang, pierced seven small well pools located above each other in the rock. Water flows from one well to another and finally falls down from a 90-meter height into the seventh, the largest of the pools. You can climb to the top of the waterfall along a path laid through a dense tropical forest growing on the slopes of the mountain. A steep climb along 638 stone steps takes about 45 minutes, along the path there are benches and small arbors where you can relax and take shelter from the rain. The top offers a beautiful panoramic view of the picturesque surroundings and the Strait of Malacca. In the cool water of the Seven Wells it is pleasant to freshen up on a hot day, even in the dry season there is enough water in the natural pools to take baths. Local residents claim that in ancient times forest fairies bathed in the pools of the Talaga Tujuh waterfall, which is why the water in the wells has acquired healing properties and is able to "wash away" illness and misfortune from a person. While walking through the jungle surrounding the waterfall, you can see long-tailed macaques, rhinoceros birds and a giant creamy squirrel. At the foot of the waterfall are shops, cafes and parking.
