Buaya Sangkut Waterfall at Endau Rompin National Park, Johor

After about 2 hours trek from Batu Hampar Waterfall, Snail-Works and the team finally reached the Ultimate Buaya Sangkut Waterfall (N2°29.835' E103°19.192') of Endau Rompin National Park.

"The journey required to climb 3 Steep Hills (Samanggong Hill - about 50° steep and approx. 2307 feet) during the jungle trek. And guide is compulsory for the trekking above Kuala Jasin.
This is one of the spectacular falls in Malaysia. Buaya Sangkut is the main attraction of Endau Rompin National Park. It's quite a something to behold in it's sheer height and vastness. In terms of numbers this waterfall is 30 meters wide and drops 17,000 gallons of water per second from a height of 120 meters.
This fall also famous with it's own legends." - By Snail-Works.

The Legend Of Buaya Sangkut Waterfall
According to legend, the Jasin River and the Endau River were dwelled by thousands of dangerous crocodiles. The man-eaters often endanger people in the area. Several attack cases and near death experience were a common story among the people who use the river for their daily activities.
The ‘Orang Asli’ (aborigine) believe that the fear might be over if they could kill the crocodile king. After hunting for a period of time the ‘Orang Asli’ finally catch the crocodile king and then throw it at Seganggong hill. The crocodile was unable to move as it trapped at the rocky hill. The trapped crocodile causes the water to change it direction to the Endau River. Finally the crocodile died and the waterfall then named after the sank crocodile or known as the ‘Buaya Sangkut’.

An advise from Snail-Works : "Beware of the slippery rock surface. 'Kampung Adiddas' is very useful here. You can buy it at Kahang Town. If you fit enough, you can complete the trek to Buaya Sangkut Waterfall in one day."
