Batang Kali

Genting Highlands

Batang Kali is a small town in Hulu Selangor, one of the gateways by trunk route to Genting Highlands from Kuala Lumpur (through Rawang). Historically, this was the site of a massacre of locals commited by British soldiers during the Communist Insurgency in the colonial era. Today, it's known more for its beautiful waterfalls hidden within the vicinity, along with some hot springs at the nearby region of Hulu Tamu.

Located 30km away from Kuala Lumpur, Batang Kali connects to Gohtong Jaya on a 15km route through rainforest and hills, passing by Sungai Kedondong River where most of the popular picnic spots are known along with a spectacular waterfall.
