    Sorry to being demoralize, will reporting to the police beforehand help? What happen if it doesn't help? We just pay? It the ranger territory more then the police I believe

    Welcome to Malaysia guys, sad but true, not the proudest thing unfortunately.

    This is how we do it most of the time at other national parks (not taman negara of course - too big the area, so we had to do some pre-arrangement, but this is all packaged by the tour agencies, so its very formalised). For mini official trips to other nature reserves, we normally do the following:

    1) ask the van to stop a grop of 3 before the main enterance. This group (say Group A) will walk in
    2) The other 2 groups will be inside the van. (Group B & C)
    3) Group B will come down, and start walking in
    4) Group C will follow shortly but in a different batch
    5) Group A being left behind will catch up eventually with Group A
    6) All gears are inside the bag, no tripods are to be seen on sight (tripod = $$$)
    7) Hold plastic bags of food and junks - Make it look like a picnic
    8) If engaged with the Rangers, a designated group of Lawyers (Group A) will talk their hearts out with the Ranger, requesting documentation, official letters to govern this fee. The rangers arguement will be we're here for commercial purpose, bla bla bla, our arguement will be, we're here to picnic, and we have been coming here for years!! hahahah, no new signs, no new documentation, nothing published in newspaper - Helps if you can argue with them in Bahasa Malaysia
    9) Group B & C will move ahead, disregarding group A, '
    10) Group A to catch up

    Sounds a bit complicating, but thats how its normally done.

    Either that or

    1) Beat the clock and reach there by 7

    At least we had done what we shld, and willl use it to our advantage.

    As what was mentioned by Neoro, it's always the same with other popular spots such as this. Anyway, we'll have a meet-up session, and discuss further on this on Fri.

    Pretending I posted on the wrong thread k..

    If you go Bali, you're advised not to pissed the monkeys off, cause when you pissed one off the entire batalion will come...

    If you can't change the monkeys then we got to learn to walk pass them, if we want to make a change, that would be better tasks to the politicians and government.. Can't don't happen overnight...

I wld definitely bring my half tent along, and you guys cld chunk ur equiptment in. Some might want to do some funky and funny shoot or even Moon/Star Trail, or supper slow speed photography.
