Kuala Woh Recreational Forest

Kuala Woh Recreational Forest in Tapah is known as "Hutan Lipur Kuala Woh" in Bahasa Melayu and is a popular camp site and picnic areas for the locals during the weekends and public holidays.
It is located about 10km away from the Tapah North-South Highway Toll and was officially opened on 27 September 1983 by the the late Sultan Idris Shah Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Shah who was the Sultan of Perak at that time.
It is also known as "Batu Tujuh" picnic site. If you are on your way to Cameron Highlands from Tapah, you may want to consider stopping by this place and check it out in case you want to do your own camping, picnic or even scaling Gunung Batu Puteh in the near future. The Sungai Batang Padang river flows through this recreational forest throughout the year.
There are many big stones along the bank of this river and some parts of the banks have hot springs with the heat source coming from the stones at the base of the river.
This forest is also rich with "Nyatoh", "Meranti", "Merbau" and "Keruing" trees hence this place is also a good educational ground if you want to learn more about the tropical rainforest of Malaysia. Herbalists and botanists will also appreciate this forest as medicinal herbs such as "Tongkat Ali" and "Kacip Fatimah" are also found here.
