Our destination today is Sungai Sendat waterfall, but we are not heading to the waterfall itself. Instead, we went to a quieter place a little further down the stream. The road to Sungai Sendat falls used to be unpaved, but it has since been nicely paved so that even family cars can reach there. This has the effect of making Sungai Sendat itself more accessible and hence more crowded. Sadly, it also means more littering by irresponsible people who seems to think that their rubbish will somehow be absorbed into the earth, or they just don't care. By avoiding the main waterfall we found a nice place to layout our picnic mat and have a cool dip in the stream.
|From where we parked, it is just a few steps to the river|
|Looking up stream. A gentle flow with a soft sandy bottom. I can sit all day in the water and watch the leaves falling from their branches. There's simply nothing more therapeutic than this!|
|Looking down stream, water roar between large boulders, forming quick flowing currents.|
|I don't know what tree is this, but it has a majestic root, spreading more than 20 feet apart.|
|Come sit down among boulders and let the cool rushing water wash away all your tension and aches. The water is at least 5 Celsius cooler than the ambient temperature.|
|Satay for lunch! Nothing work up an appetite better than sitting in cool running water.|
