Journey to the Siong

One of the 2 monkeys we found, this one's call Linus
A job recently got postponed to a later week so I decided to go on the trip to Siong waterfall along with the gang, Siong is located off the road to Kuala Kelawang, near the borders between Selangor and Negeri Sembilan, it is a relatively short and easy track what makes it fun are the wild boar traps in the area.
We meet up again at the usual meeting point at Damansara Perdana at 6.00AM 6.30AM (Sorry "Lah", I over slept) and head towards Ulu Langat for breakfast.
Orang Asli Village with tall durian tree
After satisfying our need for food, we head towards Kampung Rembai to satisfy our need for adventure and to escape the usual garbage we see in our everyday life.
So a short drive later we found ourselves in the starting point which is the orang asli village (A big thanks to Suresh for his navigation skills and the GPS), parked the car under the durian tree (I know, it's insane) and got ourselves geared up, ready for some torture.
The Trail: clear and easy
Unlike the other trails, we got ourselves a guide from the Orang Asli (aboriginal people) village, it makes it even more easier for us especially when it comes to the wild boar traps, they'll know where they place it for sure.
Within an hour later, we've reach a beautiful tall cascading waterfall, close to civilization yet pristine, since it lacks a pool to dip in, everyone did the next best thing that can be done at a waterfall like this, cam whoring.
The goal
The team
I'm not gonna post the cam whoring pictures or pictures of the mountain gorilla due to personal reasons such as shyness and fear of apes. This will be my final outdoor activity for the month of August, got to commit to other things plus the Chinese believe that this is not a good month to be out, there might be hungry things out there [Playing X-files theme].
Have a Great Day
