我们一行人共6辆四驱车浩浩荡荡从Segamat出发,使用12号公路朝Bandar Muadzam Shah方向出发。在经过Ulu Keratong不远后,转进右边的泊油路。此时就得注意以下这个在左边分电站。沿着旁边的泥路进入油棕园。

 

这一次瀑布的地点位于彭亨州的Lesong受保护森林里。当Endau Ronpin国家公园于1972年扩张其区域时,一部分Lesong受保护森林的范围也被纳入其中。

 

We are total of 6 units 4wd departed from Segamat, used road no.12 and moved to Bandar Muadzam Shah direction. After Ulu Keratong, we turned into the right junction. Soon this power station is in our view on the left. We entered the oil palm plantation by using the trail.

 

This time, the waterfall we gonna visit is located in Lesong Forest Reserved in Pahang. Some area of Lesong Forest Reserve was included as part of Endau Rompin National Park when it was further expanded in 1972.

这个进口有个难处是车子需驶下斜度极高的小斜坡。只有高底盘的车子才不会触碰到底盘。而另一个入口则是依循正规手续登记从正门进入种植园。

 

Here got some difficult for stock 4wd, car need to go down 2 short steep slopes! There's another entrance at the main gate, but you need to register & get the permission to enter the plantation.

当然这些小障碍对四驱车好手来说都是小儿科。

 

This is nothing to those heavy modified 4wd.

接着就是一段园丘园泥路。这里的路线错综复杂,如不熟悉,肯定会迷路。

 

A stretch of dirt road in oil palm plantation. The road system here is like spider web. You will get lost inside if you not familiar with the direction.

这就是园丘和森林的边界了。

 

Edge of plantation and forest.

如同虚设的警告牌,伐木工程依然在这森林里进行着。

 

A 'what not to do' signboard. Logging is restricted inside this reserved forest but funny is logging activity is active inside.

Photobucket

大家在进入森林前都拜祭山灵,以祈求旅程一切平安。

 

Everybody praying for goodluck before entering into the jungle.

这是伐木罗哩使用的泥路,到处坑坑洞洞,当车子快速驶过这些坑洞时,更是觉得颠沛。Kiddo说他们曾以时速每小时100公里在这奔驰!路表层都很松软。尤其在下雨后,更是难以行走。车子一时失控还会打滑。但对四驱车好手们,这都是乐趣之处。

 

The ride on the logding trail is very bumpy, especially when the 4x4 drivers drove fast on the uneven surface. Kiddo told me sometime the speed can reach 100km/hr on the trail... OMG... haha! The trail can be very muddy and slippery especially after rain. Even our 4x4 also experienced 'drift' at some tricky surface. Kiddo called this is FUN!

整个路程最艰难的就是快要到营区前一个斜坡。需要同伴们的指导才可安全的避开坑洞,不至于卡在坑里。

 

The most tricky part is the hill slope section before the campsite. Drivers need guiding to avoid wheel stuck inside the deep holes.

营地里唯一的建筑物。

 

The only building at campsite.

这营区可轻松的容纳约20人。

 

The campsite can accommodate about 20 person comfortably.

营区旁就有一座小瀑布和水潭。不想走太远的,就可在这里享受瀑布浴了。

 

A small cascade and swimming pool are nearby to the campsite. Just nice for those lazy to walk faraway.

从营区步行到位于上流的主瀑布需约15分钟。我们越过这个深及大腿的小河到对岸去。

 

Trekking to the main Harimau Berjemur Fall at upper stream takes another 15 minutes. We crossed the river to go to the trail at the opposite river bank.

再沿着废弃的伐木泥路行走。

 

Followed the abandoned logging trail.

这时要注意进入丛林的小路口,那是由石块组成的二层阶梯。丛林里的小径也有明显的记号。

 

Take note a small junction on left. There's a 2-steps formed by rocks & enter the bushes. Noticed that markings are along the trail.

Photobucket

很快,我们又来到了河边。大家都小心翼翼的踩在湿滑的石面,沿着河边步行。瀑布的景色也映入眼帘。

 

Soon, we reached the river bank again. The trail follows the river bank forcing us to carefully place our foot step on the slippery rock surface.

这就是Harimau Berjemur的主瀑布。Harimau Berjemur顾名思义,就是老虎晒太阳的意思。只见水流经过瀑布流向一块大石块,再接着流进河里去。神奇的是,这大石块的颜色看起来就像一块虎皮,具有金黄色的斑痕。另一个神奇的是,在大石块下有一个山洞,据说这里就是老虎乘凉的地点。

 

This is the main tier of Harimau Berjemur Fall. Harimau Berjemur means tiger basking in the sunshine. The water drop on a flat rock platform then drop to the stream below. Interestingly, the colour of the rock platform is like the stripes of tiger. Maybe the space under the platform is the place where tiger choosed to escape from the heat.

热爱冒险的,可沿着瀑布左边山壁的小径往上爬去。小径很狭窄而且湿滑,攀捉树木时可要小心,别捉错了枯枝,

 

The trail lead to the 3rd tier of the Harimau Berjemur Fall may take some risk for those who try to scramble up, the trail is quite slippery and narrow as it laid on the left near to the waterfall.

Photobucket

奇妙的是,第三层瀑布是属于垂直型瀑布。这类型的瀑布在马来半岛倒是少见,而在婆罗岛我却见得多。

 

Amazingly, it's a vertical type of waterfall, which is hardly seen at Peninsular Malaysia, but alot at Borneo Island.

Photobucket

在此特别鸣谢Kiddo及友人的热情协助,此行才得以顺利完成。

 

Billion thanks to Kiddo & friends made this trip succesful!
