the yank has the redwood forest. Beijing has the centuries old trees in a park.

Do u know that at Kg Pasir Raja in 'Ganu has a few 1300+/- a few hundred yrs old Cengal tree? The circumference is 35 or was it 37m and its hundreds of feet towering ointo the sky!

Enroute to this grand old tree is Sg Koh. A clear, shallow but fast moving river with icy cold water and lotsa kelah fish. It has a few camping sites, accessible by 4x4 only (the ford lanun darat club and individual 4x4 clubs make frequent forays into this part of the world).

Who owns 4X4 and is semi-hard core enuff to wanna come along? The next family trip plan is around july/early Aug. Serious offroaders with dirt bikes also can lah.

Activities include camping, angling,bbq, swimming and jungle trekking.
Pay-yr-own kinda trip.:D

PM Yang Berkhemah for details. :D

Sssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh... ;) there's also just as many OPPORTUNISTS! (just being polite for rogues, perompaks, hantu's and the very greedy) who like in the dead of the night, faster than lightning...those centuries old trees may disappear and can sell this for an arm n leg, surely there WILL be buyers!..

AND their activities AIN'T camping, bbq, swimming, but jungle trekking to lumber them trees.

no worries lah (well, fingers crossed)...these '000s yr old trees are in Ulu Ganu national park and the Forest Rangers' damn canggih-resort-like-office is but a mere 10km or so away at the Cemerung Waterfalls. I was told that the rangers make frequent 4x4 trips into these parts... :)

Yes, the orig trail was jalan lori balak...now its for us to explore lah...trekking to see the 1300yr old cenggah is, but only 'sebatang rokok' as the orang asli would say. :p

Oh, did i tell ya that the nite has millions&godzillion plus a few shooting stars???:D

Yang mahu pergi camping juga if only somebody bid for my restaurant. Then I can come and climb the tree and swing like Tarzan. And sumore can cook the fish caught by the riverside to wok up the Kelah fish to the camper taste buds if I am there. ;)

Ask and it shalt be given. And looking at the tree.....mm. I seek for 4D tree and it was found. Now , I know where I can get for the 4d Jackpot lucky nombor. So wise one, show me the road leading to the tree where I can seek and find it.
Once kena jackpot, I rename the restaurant to Tupai Zing. Food and drinks were be served FOC for the rest of your life. The best of all, parts of the proceed of the profit would be channel to charitable causes and of course to forest preservations. :) :D :)

July 15-17..yeah yeah! Its a weekday. School kids cannot go blahblahblah...

Know that this 2day ponteng from school should be treated as an educational Field trip (for a song sumore).

Western style of education for kids are more field trips than bolehland mug, mug, mug, then regurgitate and vomit the muggings! :p hahahahah.

Those who wanna tag along, PM me.
