Mount Climbing @ Sentah Village

mount_sentah
I played the google earth few months back to check out is there any mount nearby the the Kuching Serian road, and I notice located about 3KM inside the Siburan Village (17th Mile) of the Kuching Serian road, is a mount called the Sentah Mount. Some local guy took a bunch of photos and upload to the google earth. And I was stunt by those photos; this is definitely a place that I wanted to go.

cliftSo last Sunday morning I was equipped with my D90, together with 2 of my aunts. We all drove to mount Sentah, they wanted the morning exercise and I wanted the scenery. It was a cloudy morning, and the fogs are all over the woods, which gives a refreshing feeling. Along the way there are a lot of bamboos, while some part of the mount there are also coco trees. The local villages even used the cliff to plant white pepper.

It took us around 50 minutes to get on the very top of the mount, and surprisingly there are people live there. No wonder I saw some local walk to the mount top, at first I tough they are just like us who came for the walk. Never would have guessed that they actually live here! There is also a church on top of the mount, I recall my memory as I had visited a lot of local villages at Kuching, and notice that there are church in almost every villages. This is a good sign as with the power of religion, it can educate the young one on what is moral, which is better than the kids who had never been to church.

My photography trip ends at the top of this beautiful church, I wanted to take more photos but I can’t, because it started to rain few minutes after I reach the top. So I had to RUN down the hill >_<
