i think here is more suitable place to post all my Pennisular Malaysia waterfall trip, and i hope moderator can move my other waterfall trips here from other section, thanks. [Just link to those other posts of yours here. In a short while one of us will merge it into this thread. -sabre23t 25jun09]1. Terung / Terong / Trong Waterfall (N4.69302 E100.75587)
Terong is a small sleeping town 17km off Taiping. The town also known as Trong and Terung. Hectic life is merely non-existent, as time passes indefinitely slow in this town which mainly produces charcoal. Other attractions are mangrove swamp fishing activities and friendly people. A beautiful jewel, Terung Waterfall is hiding in this small town.
Don’t have any clear signboard from the main road. Only a signboard stated water treatment station. Maybe because lack of info, not many tourist know about the waterfall. Just follow the road all the way in. You’ll come to a Y junction, just stick to the right, while the left will lead you to the water treatment station. The road will become narrower once you go further in. End of the road is a small car park. There’s a staircase on left and trail on right. The trail on right is leading to somewhere (maybe to upper stream), while the staircase is down to the Terung fall. Be careful when walking down to staircase, as some part of the staircase is slanted or destroyed. The powerful Terung Fall is just down there. A water pipe had been built, looks like here is a water catchment area. We have not much time to explore the upper stream cause the day start to drizzle.
The local are prefer to have their own sweet time at the lower stream, we don’t see any local at the fall during the visiting.
the staircase to the heaven
the powerful main fall with a deep pool
another tier in front of the main fall
the full view
really feel 'chuan' after climbing up the staircase back to car park...
locals are prefer playing at the lower stream (sorry guys, no bikini girl here, only man with 1 pad belly...
the super crystal clear water - you can see the rocks clearly lay at the base
the fall should be here.
