Waterfall has been always been my second choice of day trip. No matter how nice the waterfall is, I rather go for mountain or jungle but occasionally I was thinking of dipping into water after a long hike. But it’s not the case for Serendah Waterfall trip done by me lately.
16 October 2010
It’s my second trip outing with My Travel Kaki Dot Com. But I did really enjoy their trip itinerary where every one of us never been here before. We did a recce instead.
A group of people who look strange to each other joined for a day trip mission. It was considered as 3-in-1 trip which consists of waterfall, private retreat and also seven well dam. The costs of this trip were only cover food and transportation, that’s it.
We met, we introduced, we drove all along to destination before called off our day was started as early as 8.00am.
Serendah Waterfall is located at Serendah vicinity. How to get to there? Just use the old trunk road to Rawang and pass by it. Turn to the right and cross along Orang Asli settlement. Follow the sign board and you’ll reach waterfall area after the metal bridge.
Metal bridge … the destination
Car park is available for FREE. First waterfall can be sighted from the car park. This area was developed into kind of playground and shower facilities which I felt spoils the nature. I don’t feel anything back to the nature.
Facilities playground … not fancy anything here
Facilities available … but not well maintained
Ground level … quite shallow and not deep
Since I’m not enlightened with any infrastructure here because I’m simply an explorer, I prefer further into waterfall area. Our group walked and moved into the nature and started our waterfall rock hiking. It was kinda slippery and need to be cautious all the time.
First river crossing … just a warm up
Crossing zig-zag … become more challenging
Rocky scene started to look amazing … further up for better view
Nice stream of water … more to come if you go higher
Steep path … real challenging
Rough stream of water … too rough to relax here
Never ending hike … have to settle at one place
But need to settle up soon … still looking for decent place
Yo! … cooling off time
Spotted amazing red centipede … absolute poison type
Try making a u-turn … after found himself at the end
Getting into the rotten trunk … his home
Nothing than having fun with ourselves at one place for about an hour before we called off our day at Serendah Waterfall.
Yet another waterfall trip for me. I’ll be back as an organizer next time.
