Templer Park . . happy time with old buddies

Sigh* . . Back from Templer Park yesterday . . My whole body was ached and exhausted. Anywhere this is a very fun trip and I really enjoy it.. Templer Park . . which is famous for camping and jungle trekking activity . Located at Rawang and can be reached by bus .

Inside bus, on the way to Templer Park

Friends and me , in total are 7 people will try out our very first time over-night camping in jungle. Arrive there about 9 a.m something and begun our short meeting and stuffs distrubution among our members.. When everything was done, we started our journey to the first checkpoint.

We had arrived..
My equipment.. final check before the journey start

Here we go !

Just a short duration of walk, we had arrived to our first checkpoint which have a big pool. For those that are lazy to walk and explore deeper, this is the best place for those to have fun. Frankly speaking, water in the pool is quite dirty . lol, because people at the upper checkpoint have the first-hand to fully utilize the river water.(wash socks. shirts, underwear , bath with soup , pee , and expel their solid toxin' , and etc ) . wakaka.

The first checkpoint.. the man-made pool..for lazy people.. you can swim with alot of floating poops and pees.. weeee.. seronoknya..

OTW to our 2nd checkpoint..

The second checkpoint would be our camp site and it is very far from the previous checkpoint. It took us about 20 minute of walk to arrive there. Once we arrived, we saw a group of scouts were setting their camp too at the camp site.. It is our lucky day for having them around. Because it was our first time over-night camping, we need their useful advise and helps.. They taught us how to choose a good woods for camp fire and provide us some sulfur powder for repelling snakes..
The camp site.. Scouts were setting up their camp

Waterfall that located near our camp site

Thought we had arrived at the camp site, but it is not our stopping point yet.. we ask the scouts to look after our equipments because we would start our jungle trekking that will took up to 4 hours of journey . Of course we wouldn't want to carry the tents and tons of bags along right..? So, we only brought along foods , waters , first aid and salt . . all compressed to one bag.. and I .. am in charged to carry the bag all the way . . lolx . it is indeed a tough journey because we choose to walk through the river.. yesh, that mean all the way we are walked with our feets soak in the rivers.. If we face waterfall, we will climb it , no wonder how tough it were.. and we did it.. though it is very dangerous..the river's rock are indeed very slippery .. Here we go ! Our challenging jungle trekking had begun! Dark forest.. though time was already 10am++ I think it is the time for me to challenge the genting's rock climbing again...hahaha..
The dark forest..

We started our river way journey..

The challenge !

The waterfall was rushing down in a great speed.. and hell yea, we were going to climb up

Many waterfalls to come.. each with diff surface and difficulty..

Break ! eat biscuit and biscuits.. Just enough to ease our hunger pain .

After go-return from our journey, the first thing we did were to set up our tents. . 2 tents for 7 peoples.. all equipment were borrowed from my secondary school's scout. There was a waterfall located just twenty feets from our camp. After settled up our tent, we started to find woods for night's fire camp... When everything are done, we took a bath / play water at the waterfall .. wow, super relaxing and refreshing.. the water that fall from the high rock functioned like a massage machine when it's hit ur back. . it make us to forget how exhausted we were ...

Finally back to our camp site.. though exhauted, but we needed to set up our tent before the night arrive..

Weeeee... successfully set up..

Second task.. set up fire for later cook..

Start to boil some water to cook maggie mee.. haha

My dinner.... eat at 5pm.. swt.. hungry la no choice.
ngek ngek ngek..Going to chop some woods for later fire-camp
Some woods that we managed to gather.. not enough to burn it all night long.. have to find more..

Grilling sweet potatoes for supper.. !

Our supper..

Night arrived and it was indeed very dark... without fire and touch light.. we can hardly see anything.. The trees are very tall indeed and it has hide the moon. Nothing much that we could do during night. We had played poker and chit-chatting.. since no galz were around.. we were not looking forward to talk about spooky story.. haiz.. Due to our exhausted days . . we slept at 11pm.. O ya, inside the jungle we were totally disconnected from the outside.. No phone line can be detected ..
Boiling water . . .now adi night.. very very dark.. You watch survivor before?

Morning ! once we woke up , first thing to do is to keep the tents and clean the surrounding. Wow, sleeping in the jungle is very very cold.. the sound of waterfall was buzzling our ears all night long. The sound is just like raining. The smoke from the fire we set up had keep the mosquitos away . . zero mosquito bite for me.. haha. sleep at forest ain't that bad at all. But one thing that we not used to is there are no toilet facilities around.. We have to pee at any place that we think are suitable.. such as behind trees or bushes. Worst case had happened to my friend.. Hell break lose and he got a stomachache. . (-_-") . . Yea, he have to settle it behind those trees.. Well, it is a good experience anywhere. Haha. Hmm, wonder what will happen if there were galz around.. haha..
Woods that had become ashes..

Our tents and hand-made clothe's hanger..

Keeping our tents .. and leave ..

Back to home at 11am and have a good sleep . . . whole body was aching.. Well, the aches and bruises will gone... but not the pride and experiences we had gained... ! Well done ...
