Sungai Pandan Waterfalls, (also sometimes called the Panching waterfalls) is situated about 25 km from Kuantan, Pahang. It is a popular picnic and recreational location for Kuantan dwellers and those staying in the surrounding areas.
The beautiful cascading waterfalls and the cool, slightly light green (color of pandanus plants – the reason for the name) and clear waters forming the streams along sandy soil amidst verdant jungle surroundings make for an attractive getaway for city dwellers to relax and pass away the time, especially during weekends.
The Sungai Pandan (“Pandan River”) Waterfalls is part of the Sungai Pandan Forest Reserve (“Hutan Lipur Sungai Pandan”) that encompasses an area of about 25 hectares. This forest reserve, an untouched treasure, is home to several species of tropical trees including a few species of the pitcher plants.
