Lata Lembu Recreational Forest, Kedah

Lata Lembu Recreational Forest is a protected forest in Sik District, Kedah. It is 16 km from the town of Sik. The forest is quite remote, as there is no access road for vehicular traffic. Entering it involves making a 5-km track through the jungle from Lata Mengkuang.

The Lata Lembu recreational forest is a favourite spot for camping and bird watching. It is located at an elevation of between 400-500 meters above sea level, and is covered with highland dipterocarp forest.

Lata Lembu is also the name of the waterfall in the forest. It is 30 meters in height, and cascades over the rocks to a picnic spot at the bottom. The site got its name from a rock formation at the bottom of the waterfall that resembles a cow.
