Usun Apau Exploration, How to Climb the Tallest Waterfall in Sarawak, The Julan Waterfall 乌舜阿包探险记,砂劳越最高瀑布之祖兰瀑布

THE JULAN WATERFALL INFORMATION
Julan waterfall is situated at the Usun Apau National Park plateau. Its has countless waterfall, but the most famous one will be the eastern Julan, and western Julan waterfall which is the highest waterfalls in Sarawak. 

To get there, its not as easy journey, there is no proper tar road to that place, all the journey require a 4WD, and couple of hours of jungle trekking. The place not frequent being explorer, therefore there are also no proper trail to the place, all we can rely on its the local village people who stayed there, and use their instinct to bring us to the place. 

祖兰瀑布的简介
祖兰瀑布是位于乌舜阿包国家公园的南边。那里是高原,有无数的瀑布,但是最引人注目的就是东部祖兰瀑布,和西部祖兰瀑布。因为它们是全砂拉越最高的瀑布。

但是到祖兰瀑布的路途非常遥远,有没有很完善的道路可到达。首先要用四驱车,开数小时的车程,经过布满尘土的木山路。然后在登数小时的原始森林,才能够到达。这里只有当地村民才知道这么走。


THE JOURNEY 路程记录
Miri to Julan Bridge (Mr Lipau's Farm House)
美里到祖兰桥(里保先生的村屋)

First we are using 4WD and drive along the logging road. The distance from Miri to Julan Bridge 274km, with a 7 hours drive. In between, we stop by Lapok town for food supply, and also to pick up the rest of the porter to help carry our food supply. 

路程开始,先开用四驱车在歪来歪去的木山路。七小时,全程两百七十四公里。
Elevation is about 650 meter above sea level
位于高海拔六百五十米

Julan Bridge to Julan Waterfall Top
祖兰桥到瀑布的顶

From here are all jungle trekking, and the distance to Julan waterfall is about 11.65km, at 8 hours and 50 mins of hike. 
这里开始登山,全程解决十二公里,解决九小时的路程。
Elevation goes up from 680m to 1111m above sea level.
从海拔六百八米升到一千一白米。

THE TRAIL CONDITION
The trail condition is bad, really bad. As there are no clear trail to our base camp or the waterfall base. All are base on the instinct of our guide Mr Lipau. Along the way, there are full of plantation with thorns, spines, and prickles. We have to cross a few streams, and keep on ascending. 70% of the trail are mud trail. 

路程的状况
这路真的是不好走。完全没有人走过的痕迹,我们的向导是靠着他的方向感来带路。70% 烂泥路,还需要往上登,也要经过几条溪流。中途有很多荆棘植物。

THE CHALLENGE
95% of the trail have leeches waiting for the correct timing to strike, and there are also a lot of flying blood sucking insects. I suffer at least 40 leeches bites, and one of my friend had suffer a rather bad leg injury, as a patch of his skin fall off after bitten by an unknown flying bug. 

Our bags are all more than 10kg, and its very heavy to carry extra water. With a 9 hours hike, most of our water almost finish, so water supply is another issue, as most of the river had leeches, so we have to boil our water, wait for it to cool down and mix with chlorine pill before we drink it. 


挑战
95% 的路都有水蛭,在等着吸我们这些难得一见人类的血,也有许多的吸血飞虫。我被至少四十只水蛭咬,到处伤痕累累。我的朋友被一只不知名的吸血昆虫叮咬,隔天伤口处的一块肉不减掉。我担心是食肉菌。

我们的背包都超过十公斤,自己背。两升的水也在这个九小时里也喝的差不多完了。这里的水源有很多水蛭,水要煮的很滚,我也在水里加了氯丸片来杀菌。很难喝,但是没办法。
