    Default Gunung Stong, Ayam & Baha

    Hey guys,here are some pictures of a trekking trip i did earlier this month.
    Located in the small town Dabong,Kelantan.A 4D3N traverse covering 3 mountains and South-east Asia's supposedly highest waterfall ;Jelawang waterfalls 250m, Gunung Baha 1450m, Gunung Ayam 1500m & Gunung Stong 1399m.

    Pardon the pictures as some were taken using PNS and i just bought my first DSLR

    Thanks.
    Its about 450metres for Baha's camp/lover's cliff,for one with average fitness it takes 2-3 hours trek up from the park entrance.

    Thanks for sharing these photos!
    Looks like a wonderful place. #4, #7 & #9 are simply awesome & the waterfall at #18 looks tempting!
    Maybe you would like to explain to viewers here how you got there..

    Thats a very good link there,thanks for the heads up!spare me the agony of explaining
    Baha's camp is indeed 450m ASL,the 300m you're referring to could be the height of Jelawang falls?
