    Default [JBOG Aug’2012 ] : Endau Rompin (Peta), Johor National Park

    Here to organize JBOG Aug’2012 : Endau Rompin (Peta), Johor National Park

    Personally I visited this park 3 years ago , and love the nature there. Read here about Endau Rompin and you may search bing.com for images to have some idea of what the park could offer.

    This is a non-profit outing, est cost will be announced via email or drop me PM. Those who came to JBOG before, would know my style is to keep the cost affordable , without sacrifice much on quality to have fun/good food. Said that, Endau Rompin is a very native national park (rural) due to the accessibility, please keep the comfort expectation to be low.

    * JBOG (JB outing group) is a jalan/makan/shot around outing that was started Sep2011 to bring small group of CS members to JB for day, and eventually emerged to a regular monthly outing. We’ve been to many parts of JB, Johor and also overseas trip. The participants are a good mix of like-minded gentleman and ladies with a passion for NOT ONLY photography but also to make friends, to have fun and most importantly to have good food.

    Endao rompin is very raw, only few visitors per year if you compare to Taman Negara. Animal activities are quite busy.
    Last time I was there, we seen freshly baked elephant droppings from overnight that was less than 1km away from the chalet. these are raw elephant, not those u see in Singapore Zoo.

    The dark sky there is at least magnitude 6. If the weather is clear, not only many many stars but the Milky Way as well. My favourite regular stargazing spot is somewhere near this park.

    last time I was there, I was only in flipflop...personally I trek better in flipflop than trekking shot. and I could easily took out when I jump into water. mind you all, there are lots of parts that we had to walk across the river. and frequently under attacked by swamp of leech....be prepared..
