2009年年尾,正值雨季。忽然心血来潮,决定趁3天假期就回家去。老妈说已经连续下雨好几天了,不知为何这3天的天气却是非常晴朗。呆在家里已久的我,已经开始蠢蠢欲动想往外跑了。

 

这个早上,我们到槟城去吃点心,然后再到极乐寺和Air Itam蓄水池。到达Air Itam蓄水池时,晴天万里。我马上查看GPS,哦,有个POI,Mount Elvira瀑布。我们就决定去探访。

 

要到瀑布其实不难,只是那上山的柏油路斜坡不好爬。斜坡又斜又长。好不容易我们终于抵达了藏在路边草丛里的Mount Elvira瀑布。一条不是很明显的小径向内走去,再往下爬去就看到了Mount Elvira瀑布。

 

 

Back to home town for the 3 days holiday. My mom told me that it had rained continuosly for the last few days, but surprisingly the 3 days holiday are very bright sunny weather. Make me feel wanna go outdoor again!!!

We went for dim sum breakfast at Penang in the morning, then drive to Kek lok Si and Air Itam Dam. The sky is blue and bright, so 3 of us decided to visit the fall near Air Itam Dam in last min : Mt. Elvira Fall.

Actually it's very easy access fall, the killing part is the long uphill walking, plus i had rest for so long time at home. If you have motorbike, you can ride all the way there. The fall is located at the road side, hiding under the shade. No obvious trail, need to tak some effort to go near the fall.

Sad that the place had been polluted lightly by human rubbish.

晴空万里的Air Itam蓄水池。


How can i resist the temptation of going outdoor under this kind of bright sunny day!

由于太多树叶枝丫的阻挡,没能拍到瀑布的全景。

Hard to take the whole look of the fall, which is hiding behind the branches.
