LOCATION:
Located near Teluk Burau (or Burau Bay) and the Oriental Village. When you see the left-turn junction into Oriental Village and Berjaya Beach Resort & Spa, go straight towards the dead end of the road where you will find the entrance to Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls.

In general, Teluk Burau is located some 20 minutes from Langkawi International Airport (LGK) or 45 minutes from Kuah town.

DESCRIPTION:
You must be asking why I put on photos of long-tailed macaques (a.k.a the monkeys) instead of cascading waterfalls of Telaga Tujuh (or Seven Wells in English). My original intention was indeed to see the first few levels of the waterfalls that form a unique cascading system of seven wells that goes up several hundred feet high in the 550 million years old rainforest of the Machincang Range. Nonetheless, I got caught up with the colony of long-tailed macaques that roamed between the parking lot and the waterfalls.

There were some twenty of them, at least, and were quite friendly (or indifferent) to the crowds. Their sizes vary, from frighteningly big alpha males to really small babies. They were quite camera shy, hence taking a great still-shot of them was quite a challenge in itself.

A word of reminder to exercise some cautions when approaching these mostly docile mammals. I have yet to hear about tourists being attacked by them, but they might get ticked off by the incessant camera flashes or something to that effect and could turn ferocious.

What about Telaga Tujuh? The rain started falling heavily so I had to abandon my plan to climb up to see the waterfalls. Mind you, the climb is fairly steep.

MY VERDICT:
The macaques are quite the attraction by itself. If it wasn't for the heavy rain, I highly recommend a climb up the stairs to check out the waterfalls.
