There is a small river at the Gunung Datuk Recreation Park. You can bathe here or at the public toilet (20 cents charge).

The peak has an amazing view. Expect to spend at least 30 minutes to an hour there snapping pictures.

Lately, there has been rumours that the peak is infested with bees. During my trip there, there were several bees, but there were not excessively many of them. As a precaution you might want to bring some insect repellant and insecticide.
