Sungai Badak休闲公园也被称为Batu Hampar休闲公园。可使用1号公路从Gurun镇往北方前进，接着转进K605号公路。在路口可看到中华学校或Sungai Badak村民宅的牌子。
Hutan Lipur Sungai Badak also known as Hutan Lipur Batu Hampar. Use trunk road no.1 from Gurun town towards north direction, and turn into road no.
K605. Some signboard like homestay Kpg. Sg. Badak can be seen at the junction.
Drive till the end of the road, the Sungai Badak is in the front. Park the car and prepare for trekking.
At first, we search for the direction from group of teenage who were dipping in the stream near carpark, but turned out nobody heard of the location. Lucky with the advise from a man, we were managed to arrive the destination with not much hassle.
The trailhead is on the left side if you are facing to the river.
Soon the dirtroad became a singletrack, laid along the Sungai Badak.. We followed the singletack within the lalang bushes to upper stream direction, lucky not many folks here.
Saw this signboard means you are in the Hutan Lipur Sungai Badak. now.
Basic facilities are not available in the park. A big nature pool with bubble tea-colour water is seen.
There is a rock surface slope when we walked further up, think that's the reason why the place also named as Batu Hampar. Continue walking up, surface not very slippery.
Even from the shallow part of the stream, the water also can be seen in vivid tea colour. This is the 1st dark water stream we encounter around Gunung Jerai. (Of course, we saw more black water streams in the following trips around Gunung Jerai)
Wonder if during raining day, will this rockface be covered by the flowing water?
Another pool of 'tea', would you like to have a cup of tea?
Water are gushing down through a narrow passage.
Reaching soon to the Badak Fall, finally,
The Badak Fall, with a deep pool. Maybe it is not that deep, but because of the dark colour water, we unable estimate how deep is it by our naked eyes.
