Embark on an Epic Adventure to the Twin Waterfalls of Mureh: Hiking Through Paddy Fields and Jungle in West Kalimantan

Image
Welcome to the Mureh Waterfall hike, located in the beautiful Gun Tembawang region of west Kalimantan. This adventurous journey will take you through paddy fields and dense jungles, leading to a breathtaking twin waterfall that will leave you in awe. My friends and I, a group of hikers, set off on a weekend excursion from Kuching, driving to the border of Sarawak. As we reached the border, we waited eagerly for our guide and bike riders to take us to the trailhead, ready to embark on our journey. But do not expect they will be there on time even if both parties had agreed on the said time.  We waited for almost half an hour, and finally, we saw our transporter come with their bikes. As we hopped on our bikes, we were greeted with the warm and humid air of the region. The 15-minute downhill bike ride took us through the border check and a small kampung until we finally reached the trailhead. As we began our hike, we were immediately struck by the picturesque paddy fields that surrounded

The big River at Kampung Melangkap, Kota Belud, Sabah

Visiting the River near Kampung Melangkap was an incredible experience. Located at the foot of Mount Kinabalu, the river is fed by the mountain's rain and moisture from the soil. When we arrived, the water was flowing at a gentle pace and the weather was not in sunny condition, but it starts to drizzle. As the day went on, the downpour became heavier and the water in the river began to pick up speed. Eventually, the current became too strong for us to swim, so we took shelter under a canopy and spent the afternoon chatting and eating junk food. Despite the weather, I was blown away by the beauty of the surroundings. The river is surrounded by lush, green forests and the towering peaks of Mount Kinabalu loom in the distance. There are many homestays in the area, as well as opportunities for camping, making it the perfect destination for tourists looking to get close to nature. One of the things that struck me most about the big River was how well it was maintained and managed. The f

Kundasang Mesilou 3 Six Peak

  If I remember correctly, this is the starting point where we paid RM5 per person. Then, we proceed on the wooden plank walk, with a series of stairs all the way up the ridge. My brother is enjoying the view in front of him On the very top of the ridge, there is a viewing platform. On top of the viewing platform, you get to enjoy a 360 view of the surrounding. I guess maybe that is why they name this 3 sixty peak 😎🤙 Mesilou 3 Peak is located in the Kundasan Hills in Sabah, Malaysia. It lies on the north coast of the island of Borneo. A superb viewpoint lies at its peak and gives a spectacular 360-degree view of both the ocean and inland forests, hills, mountains and rivers at a height of more than 1,500 meters above sea level. If you’re thinking of going there, you should do it during the dry season, like from April to September or November to March. The weather is hot and dry.

Kuching Borneo Highland River Treking and Searching for Hidden Waterfall

Image
Kuching Borneo Highland is located about 50km from Kuching city. Here the jungle and river trekking was an amazing experience.  The waterfalls were beautiful, and the hike was challenging but worth it. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting Kuching.  But just be careful of the leeches, they hurt a little when they bite you, but not too much - just don't let them on your skin for too long.  I was with a couple of hiking friends, and I am looking forward to trekking the tropical rainforest in search of waterfalls and exotic flora and fauna. Both sides of the river are covered in the jungle canopy and each side has a separate trail both paths reunite at certain points.  There are different trails that one can take, we took one which lead higher up on the bank so that at some points we could hop on fallen logs or hang on low branches while crossing over rapids that are too fast to be crossed by foot.  My friend is a very good explorer with lots of experience hiking,
