Discover the mysterious town of Kuala Kubu Bharu and embrace nature away from the city!
Kuala Kubu Bharu is the earliest organised town in Malaysia. In 1883, a heavy rain caused the dam to break and flood Kuala Kubu, now known as Ambang Pecah. According to legend, this was the revenge of the River God, which takes the form of a white alligator. It is said that the while alligator was shot dead by Cecil Ranking, a British colonel. The body of the culprit was found on a tree the following day. Another myth that surrounds this town is the Guan Yin Temple, believed to have remained due to the blessing of the Gods.
Today, Kuala Kubu Bharu is a popular place for city folks who want a getaway amidst natural attractions and a peaceful atmosphere. Come join us for an adventure in this mysterious town!
