Saya dengan rasa bangganya mencopy paste artikel tersebut untuk pengunjung blog saya dan untuk kawan² saya yang masih belum mengenali Serendah. Saya mula berpindah ke Serendah sejak tahun 2002 dan selesa tinggal di sini walaupun daerah kami sekarang lebih popular dengan Daerah Penyapu

For a relaxing Sunday outing, head for the lush greenery of Serendah, just an hour’s drive north of Kuala Lumpur.
Although the Serendah Fall is only about 8.5 metres high, the beauty lies in the vertical drop. A lot of people come here to have some fun in the sun and enjoy the clear cold water. There are several shops in case you need some refreshments. There is also a surau for the Muslims to perform prayers.
Serendah Forest Reserve
Serendah Forest Reserve is in the northern part of Templer Park. With trails that lead up to the 360m Bukit Takun, a limestone cliff, it is a favourite among nature fans, rock climbers and conservationists.
On the way to the Serendah Fall, you will pass by the orang asli villages. You can drop by and have a look around the place. You can chat with the folks there as they are rather friendly.
The Serendah International Orchid Farm is a lovely spot for avid gardeners in need of a few hours of peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful flowers. There are over 100 varieties of orchids most of which are hybrid varieties, which are imported and grown on hillside terraces.
If you’re the adventurous type, then this is definitely your cup of tea. There is a small trek that will guide you through the jungle. But be warned, never do it in the middle of the night as it can be pretty dark and you might lose your bearings. It is advisable to take a torchlight with you even in the daytime.
Telaga Tujuh > click here for photos
A place of mystery and intrigue, Telaga Tujuh (Seven Wells) comprises seven natural pools or wells which are fed by waters that come from a river flowing downstream in a series of cascading waterfalls. The overflow from the first pool forms a little stream that flows to subsequent pools below. Locals believe that this area is a favourite playground of fairies and genies. It is said that you can actually sense that these mystical beings are near at times, especially when you suddenly pick up an inexplicable scent in the air.
Kolam Pancing & Gerai Makan Danau Serendah has been here for quite sometime and it still attracts a lot of people. This is an interesting place to visit because you get to eat what you catch. There is a big lake and you get to try your hands at fishing. After you’ve caught a few, you can get the chef to cook them for you.
This restaurant has been here for over a decade and serves one of the best seafood Hokkien mee around, according to the locals. If you do come to the restaurant, you must try the Sang Yu bihun soup as well. The ikan haruan is cooked to perfection.
From Kuala Lumpur, take the North-South Highway heading north and exit at Rawang. After the Rawang tollgate, turn right and head north via the old trunk road. Pass busy Rawang town and head toward Serendah (10km away).
