Gunung Stong & Waterfall Trek
Gunung ( Mount ) Stong is located in Dabong Forest Reserve in the northern
Malayasian state of Kelantan. This area offers some pristine forest
and interesting but elusive wildlife such as elephants. Gunung Stong
( 1433 metres ) and her seven waterfalls was ranked 5th out of a list
of 10 special places for eco-tourism in Malaysia. With a drop of 305
meters, the Jelawang Fall is possibly the highest waterfall drop in
South East Asia.
Our Stong trek starts with a heart-pumping, literally speaking, climb
up to Jelawang Fall from the base. Base-camp is set at the top of the
Jelawang Fall. For water babes, the main highlight would undoubtedly
be the numerous mini-falls further up above where one can have a splashing
good time in the gushing cold waters of the rock pools. What a rejuvenation
after a long hard trek !
For the fit and adventurous, nothing but a challenging trek all the
way to the summit of Gunung Stong will do. At the end of the day, there's
nothing like camp cooking to bring out the best in team cooperation
and spirit in all the participants. For those looking for an idyll time,
one could just sit by the edge at the top of the falls - less than 2
meters besides the sheer cliff three hundreds metres high - and dream
the world away! Try not to fall off though !!
For the uninitiated, physical and mental fitness is necessary, especially
those who aim to reach the summit. Take the challenge and try beating
our Stong 3 summiters' record return time of 3 hours !
To all budding outdoor enthusiasts who have erstwhile dream of a great
getaway adventure at a magnificent waterfall, do take this opportunity
to join our Gunung Stong & Waterfall Adventure.
