Malaysia 14 and 15 -02-2016
The 14th started very early because the mini van was leaving Tanah Rata ( Cameron Highlands) at 08.00. So wake up at 06.00 pack the last things and have breakfast around 07.00. The ride to Jerantut was taking three hours. So look around a bit, read a bit and sleep a bit. When we arrived Jerantut , the stop over place, we had to take a bus at 13.00 to get to the boat who would bring us to Taman Negara . Taman Negara is the National Park of Malaysia with the oldest Forrest in the world . The boat rid would take us to the entrance of the park. From ther I had to walk to my hotel. They told me it is a 10 minute walk but with my luggage it took me 25. And a lot I mean a lot of sweat. Because my hostel was on top of the village hill. Arrived there it did not make me happy. I ordered a expansive family room for 680 ringit. Dived by 5 and you know how much I had to pay for 4 nights. But that room was not available. So the gave me a 140 ringit room per night. still around 30 euros. So the next day after a good night sleep time for some activities. I took a walking tour through the jungle that would end doing the canopy walk. The guide told us plenty bout the animals and how to use the jungle for staying a life out there. He showed us about the medicinal sides of plants. And how to keep the animals of the jungle at a distance by making smoke and fire. All of that by using plants or trees .
