Ronda-Ronda: Bukit Sebukor Waterfall

Bukit Sebukor Waterfall is located at Lebuh Ayer Keroh infront of the traffic light about 1 km from MBMB or Graha Makmur (Melaka City Hall). From the junction you might see the 5 storey tall man-made waterfall.

The waterfall was built by MBMB in 2009 to beautify the area. It was made of original rocks from the river and some concrete materials. There are many species of plants and trees planted here and the landscape of Bukit Sebukor Waterfall is one of the best in Melaka!

MBMB also provides a walkway to the top of the waterfall and a bridge accross the waterfall so visitors might climb up and take a deep breath and view the green scenery of the area. There are many species of flowers and tropical plants here. Some of them were taken from rural areas such as kenanga, melati, janda kaya, melur, cempaka, kesidang and many more.

Visitors are prohibited to swim and enter the waterfall area for safety purposes. This waterfall is suitable for photo shooting and recreation with families and children. You might even see some birds like kingfisher, spotted dove (tekukur), merbok, and many more Malaysian local species birds.
