Located in the Batu Talam state constituency, 40km from Raub, it is also a yearly venue of the Titiwangsa Expedition where participants traverse from Lata Lembik upstream to the upper reaches of Slim River in Perak.
Raub district officer Abdul Kadir Awang Bakar said Lata Lembik, which was opened to the public seven years ago, was located near Buntu Post, an orang asli settlement on the Pahang-Perak border.
Abdul Kadir said that to capitalise on its tourism potential, chalets would be built at Lata Lembik with an allocation from the Tourism Ministry under the Ninth Malaysia Plan so that visitors could stay longer at the picnic spot.
Batu Talam headman A.B. Lah Mat Isa said visitors could now drive to the waterfall with the completion a new road in the area or take a bus or taxi.
