Pertak村是Kuala Kubu Bahru镇附近的原住民村。数十年前,原本零零星星分散在附近森林各处的原住民家庭,现在因为雪兰尔水坝的建筑工程,而被政府重新规划定居在Pertak村。

 

因为Kutu大山 (1100m) 的登山点就在Pertak村,所以闻名于登山爱好者之间。现在再加上两道新瀑布探险路线,Pertak村就更热闹了。大家可使用55号公路(Kuala Kubu Bahru - Fraser's Hill) 前往。

 

Kampung Pertak is 1 of the orang asli re-settlement village near to Kuala Kubu Bahru. Before the construction project of Selangor Dam, there were small orang asli villages scattered all over the jungle area. The village can be reached by using road no. 55 (Kuala Kubu Bahru - Fraser's Hill)

 

The place is famous among hikers, the trailhead to Gunung Kutu (1100m above sea level) is located here. Now even more merrier while there are new routes to 2 waterfall spots were revealed

经过村子后,就是一小段的碎石路直到吊桥。因为同一条入口可通往Kutu大山和这一带数座瀑布,在周末时路旁狭窄的停车位可能会供不应求,在早晨7时,我们越过两座吊桥后,旅程就正式开始。

 

After the village, there is a short distance of pebbles road to the trailhead. Several small carparks along the road could be crowded during weekend, because hikers use the same trailhead either to Gunung Kutu or waterfalls within the area. Crossing the hanging bridges on the Sungai Luit means the journey of the day is started.

其实前往Medang瀑布的路线是非常清晰,尤其在水果盛产季节,只要晓得几个路线重点,大都可顺利抵达。山径大多被越野摩托车使用后,加上雨水侵蚀,而变得凹凸不平。一路上将经过美丽的竹林。

 

Actually the main trail to Medang Fall (Lengka main fall) is quite clear and maintained by the local especially during fruits season, just need to know which turning to take and follow the erroded scrambler's track.. Single journey evelation gain is about 400m. The journey will go through lot's beautiful bamboo forest.

当天我们使用的路线不同以往,在富有户外经验的的导游,Eddie带领下,路线将涵盖Rintng河下流数座鲜为人知的瀑布。

 

The route we were using on the expedition day is different from the usual route. Under guidance by experienced natural guide, Mr. Eddie, we were going to explore the secluded tiers at lower Sungai Rinting (Lower Lengka Falls).

这里并没有明显清晰的路线,我们秏了相当多的时间在寻找路线接近Rinting河下流,一路上还得越过丛丛的障碍物和攀爬峭壁。

 

It is absolutely no clear trail, lots of slope scrambling, route finding and obstacles crossing were involved to get near to the Sungai Rinting.

队友们之间的互相协护是旅程成功的要点之一。我们也遇到了小波折,数位队友被土蜂叮伤。在服了抗过敏药后,没发现严重的过敏症状,我们又继续前进。

 

Of cause not forgetting the great teamwork among the team members which made the exepedition successfully. We faced a hiccup when some of us been stung by wasp. After medicine and checking no serious allergy occured, we continued our way with swallen arm or thigh.

路上一系列美丽的大小瀑布就是艰辛旅程的奖赏。

约3 个半小时的徒步后,下午一时我们抵达了Mendung瀑布 (Lower Lengka) 。休息期间,一些队友当然不忘来个冷水泡。

 

After 3 . 5 hours trekking, we reached the Mendung Fall (Lower Lengka) on 1pm. Stopped and had the lunch here. Some are can't resist the tempting to have a dip in the chilly pool.

2小时后,我们来到Lengka中层瀑布 (Kijang Jatuh瀑布?)。就从瀑布前方左侧再攀上山壁,企图再与Medang主山径会合。

在下午4时15分,我们来到了Lubuk Mecu小瀑布,这里离开Medang瀑布以不远了。

 

At 4.15pm, we were back to the main trail at Lubuk Mecu Cascade. The cascade is located not far away below the Medang Fall.

在河左旁往上流前进约350米。下午4时45分,我们成功抵达Medang瀑布。
