HUTAN LIPUR LATA TEMBAKAH
I made a trip to this famous rainforest & waterfalls at
Hulu Besut in Terengganu. It is about 60 km from Kota Bharu
which took less than 2 hours drive through
kampung & winding roads.
Look! That was the first Petai Tree I had seen.
It is so mighty tall and steady with a monkey sitting
up there while few guys sat below.
Monkey See, Monkey Do.
That was amazing how the master talked to
his pet monkey like a father and guided the
monkey to pluck petai from branch to branch.
Monkey was so obedient & not tied up.
It could nod its head saying Yes & No!
A bountiful harvest of Petai stalks.
The monkey gave us free Petai.
Yours truly loves to eat Sambal Petai Prawns!
When our urine smells, that means the petai has cleaned
up the walls of our dirty bladder. Our bladder smells
stinky and not the green petai.
I started my trekking into the thick forest with my driver
who became my trekking guide.
Jom! Follow me into the Hutan Simpanan Kekal
The trees are old and very tall with fresh smelling plants.
This place is famous for its 5 tiers of waterfalls.
The rapids of clean water was crystal clear & chilly.
Bridge to heavens!
The water would swell and flood during rain season.
The scary notice board gave out warning that
33 persons have drowned & died in the water.
They have several neat chalets with private balconies
& air conditions.
The price is cheap and you can sleep with all the snakes,
wild boars, squirrels and tigers roaming at night.
My faithful guide is my friend now.
I learnt so much about the lifestyle
of East Coasts in 2 days.
He is a GRAB driver, My Guide and My Friend now....
