Buaya Sangkut瀑布是Kampung Peta区的主要景点。这个瀑布拥有几个故事。其中一个传说有个土著母亲,梦见女儿将来会丧命在鳄鱼的嘴里。为了让女儿逃过厄运,母亲带着女儿逃到 Jasin河的上流,希望可以逃过鳄鱼的追捕。藏了数天后,巨鳄还是出现了。母亲护女心切,她的祷告终于使巨鳄卡在石缝中,变成了好像鳄鱼的石头。这就是 为什么取名Buaya Sangkut了。 (buaya=鳄鱼,sangkut=卡着)

 

Buaya Sangkut is the main attaction at Kampung Peta area. This fall have several different version of legends behind. One of them is... once upon a time .. a young girl has a dream that a crocodile (buaya) want to eat her.. when she tell about the dream to his parent, his parent decided to go to higher ground , a place where the any crocodile wont be able to reach. Feeling relief, somehow the crocodile appear again in the girl dream saying the same thing... so the family move to a higher ground with large waterfall which is impossible for the crocodile to reach due to the steep rock along the waterfall.. but suddenly one morning they saw the crocodile tried to climb its way at the waterfall.. but then somehow suddenly it turned to a stone while climbing.. thats why the waterfall is called Buaya Sangkut (loosely translated as stucked crocodile )

这是2009年我和Chris第一次参加Waterfall Survivor的瀑布团。我们在Kahang会合后,就乘4wd进入前往Kampung Peta。

 

This was my 1st waterfall trip with Waterfall Survivor. After meet up at Kahang, we jumped into the 4wd which arranged by the national park office to Kampung Peta.

我们的营区在Batu Hampar。从Kuala Marong营区,还有大约3km。

 

Our campsite is at Batu Hampar instead of Kuala Marong. So there's another 3km to go.

Batu Hampar休息了一夜后,我们就要往Buaya Sangkut瀑布出发。小径在Batu Hampar营区后,开始变得45度陡峭,攀上Semanggong山。斜坡和比较难行走的地点都有绳索让游客扶着。

 

A nice rest at Batu Hampar campsite, we continued our journey to Buaya Sangkut Fall. As the ultimate physical test begins here, we need to climb up a steep Semanggong Hill, which is about 2307 feet. Used the rattan rope to assist us in climbing the hill, as the gradient is around 45 degrees.

我们需越过3条小河,有些小河还有小瀑布。经过Takah Kunyit小瀑布,还需大约一小时后,就会抵达这壮观的Buaya Sangkut瀑布。

 

There are total 3 small river crossings, some even have small cascade. After an hour trekking from Takah Kunyit, we reached the spectacular Buaya Sangkut waterfall.

请留意红圈,那就是一个人站在悬崖上。可看到瀑布的壮观,但这还不是瀑布的全盛时期。

 

Take note the red circle, a person is standing up there. This is not the form period of the fall.
