Theres no restaurant anywhere around here. Just the street vendor selling the usual junk food stuff like crackers and ice cream. I recommend you bring something packed from town or home if you wish to spend some time at the picnic area.
In an emergency, there are the small malay stalls selling local delicacies around Kuala Kubu Bahru whish is about 10-15 minutes from Pertak. But dont bet on this as they open and closed as pleased.
If you intend to hike up the waterfalls, you WILL need you sustenance thereafter.
Self drive is the only way I know to this place. Of course there are public buses that takes you to Kuala Kubu Bahru. However, Pertak is much further inwards. Considering you might want to hike up to the waterfalls, additional hike from KKB to Pertak may not be too inviting.
As with most places in this great country..the toilet is in a deplorable condition. So take necessary action regarding the need for toilet and sanitary issues.
Bring wet wipes, toilet roll(s), bottled water or even disposable undies if you have to...and a towel, if you wish to take a dip in the river after..
Luggage and bags:
Water proof satchel
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Outdoorsy gear, proper hiking shoes as the usual sports shoes may not stand the rigourous terrain, t-shirt of course, dry towels
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Dispoable undies??
Photo Equipment: Cameras needs to be sealed in a ziplock bag, incase you fall into the waterfalls...
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: The usual camping gear
Miscellaneous: Thick skin if you intend to camp for the night - mosquitos are the natural inhabitant of these places.
Favorite thing: In KKB town, you can see some street art on display using big heavy rocks of simple shapes, very interesting, probably somebody good at display?
Favorite thing: This is the road of KKB to Kuala Lipis or Fraser's Hill, Raub as well. The road is extreme zigzag all the way to Raub, driving is not easy, dizzy sometimes but sceneries are nice.
Favorite thing: There are quite many restaurants and shops, cheap hotels, etc here. The whole town is very old in look, has the feel of old English town especially those old architectures of police station and old houses. Restaurant Al-Bidayah is modern actually but the surroundings are old. A worth visiting town, trust me.
