Tana Ratah, Cameron Highlands
May 24 -26, 2006
Because the Cameron Highlands were
at a higher altitude, the weather was really cool and the fresh air was
invigorating. We went "jungle trekking" and it was really beautiful. The
jungle was dense and dark and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We only
saw four other tourists during the hike, two of which had been bicycling
around the world for the past 4 years. A lot of the literature
warns that these hikes are dangerous, but the terrain was not very steep
and the paths were well marked. This was one of our favorite places in
Malaysia and I highly recommend it.

Our hostel was a converted army barracks. It
wasn't very appealing from the outside, but inside it was quite cozy and
KLG? Looks kinda like KFC doesn't it?
This bucket of chicken reminds me of something....
The buses in Malaysia were luxurious, with extra wide seats. They were
rarely crowded. We were the only two people on the bus from Tanah
Ratah to Pangkor Island.
