Sungai Lembing is a tin mining town 42 km northwest of Kuantan in Pahang, Malaysia. Lembing is Malay for spear, and "sungai" means river. Per local legend, the local ruler saw a vision of a spear in the nearby river and thus named his town after this vision.

Until the 1970s, Sungai Lembing was a major producer of underground tin. Sungai Lembing town developed in the 1880's when the British set up the tin mining industry, although the history of mining in this area extends much further back. From 1891, the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited, (PCCL), which was under British control, had a 77-year lease to mine the area. PCCL managed the mine from 1906 until its liquidation in 1986 when world tin prices collapsed.

The pit mines were closed in 1986 due to high operational costs and low yields, but during their heyday they were among the largest and deepest in the world. The total tunnel length is 322 km, with a depth of between 610 m and 700 m. A museum highlighting the tin mining industry was opened in 2003. The museum is housed in an old bungalow once used by the mine manager. The museum houses a collection of mining artifacts.

Today the town of Sg Lembing is in decline although it was once the richest town in Pahang, known as El Dorado of the East. In the 1940's about 1400 people worked in the mine. Today many of the wooden shoplots are closed and people are moving away. The town straddles the river, and the main street on the right bank is split by an avenue of majestic trees. At the end, an old wooden building overlooks the padang where games of cricket and other social activities were held.

Rainbow waterfall is accessible from Sungai Lembing town which is located 45 kilometres from Kuantan. 

Sungai Lembing used to be a busy mining town and housed the largest underground tine mine in the world - today it is almost deserted since it is simply no longer economic to continue mining in the area.

From Sungai Lembing to the starting point of the waterfall take about 45 minit driving time. In early day we need to take 4WD to go into the starting point of this waterfall but now can just go in by car. After parking the car (is one of our camp site too) we need to cross the river and take one and half hour to trek into the waterfall.

This water is a bit difference with other waterfall, it is like a small mountain that has been sliced out a small piece in the middle and we just follow the sliced out part trek into there. At the end of the trek, a big natural vertical wall appear in front of us and 75 degree slope on both side grow with small plants.
The water is broken up and reaches the bottom as mist and in the process forms a rainbow usually between sunrise and 11am when the sun is at a certain angle. Is this place is a garden it must be the most beautiful waterfall garden in Malaysia.
