Also do not forget of Jeram Pasu.According to a plaque at the entrance this is the first waterfall in Kelantan that has been developed and provided with shelters and other amenities. And it certainly has been developed, a bit too much, maybe. The waterfall can be reached easily from road nr 3 between Pasir Puteh and Kota Baharu. Access is also possible from road nr 4 between Jerteh and Marchang. It is a popular destination for the people from Kota Baharu, so the fall can be crowded during weekends and school holidays.
