German Word of the Day

der Strom (Ströme) (large) river; current, flow, stream (of visitors)



Three of us, Ernest, DaVinchee and me are doing a trip this Sunday.

Endau Rompin and maybe Mt Ophir, we're gonna camp there, dip ourselves at the waterfall and most important ride DIRT ROADS!!!!!

Sorry guys, no open invitation, only for bikes with at least a little bit off-road capability only.

BUT if you're adventurous enough, and if we don't have to wait for you, come join us in your sports bike.

It all started when our pioneer Trooper call us one day for a meet-up to discuss about this trip.

Too bad our Speedipop can't make it, else it'll be 4 Strommies...

Thks Vin and Den for the awesome ride. It was my first adventure touring and camping trip and begining of many more to come. Thks Vin for the route planning and Den for the tent and bike spares.

We initially wanted to cover two areas but the trip was shorten by a day, as we decided to spent 2 nights at rompin. With the wet weather spell coming in most afternoon, we might not have enough time to explore another area. From Kahang, 57km of dirt, red sand, gravel, broken tarred road with lots of pot holes pasting oil palm plantation and forested areas bring us to park HQ. It was off season and Ramadan and we soon realise we have the whole sanctuary to ourselves admist the wildlife. A 30mins river ride takes us to the start of the trek. We made it to the first campsite Jasin where to stayed for the night. Though not exactly camping, we had a shelter overhead, running water and stove. It was a properly managed campsite. Second day we hike our way to Guling waterfall, where we stayed, climbed and swim longer than the guide was comfortable. The trek was more of a leech avioding exercise and the waterfall was a welcome break. We made it back safely back to Jasin where we cooked and break camp. We wanted some comfort and opt for the dormitory at HQ. Third day was uncalled for as we wanted to explore the possibility of riding straight to Jasin. Indeed it was possible and a shorter ride compared to the river motorised ride. Den was pretty insistence to test his strom on a stream nearby Jasin which we crossed a day earlier by foot. Part of the adventure? We went ahead but just the shallow end for photoshoot. We headed out at noon, straight to Kahang for lunch, a place recommended by the Park Manager.

Great place to chill, relax and immense in the sound and sight of nature. Defnitely, a must visit place for the adventurous. Endau be wet till March when the warm season start again.

Guys, we have an unfinish biz via this route. U shld know what i meant. Hee

Sorry, no pics yet as cable is with bro friend.

Till the next exploration, ride safe.

Ernest

One of the many crossings we had to get through. Some bridges were really bad, with big broken off pcs at the end, some lack of concentration and you fall into the water with the bike. Sort of like 'narrow plank' in the driving centres..

(IMG:http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y192/brendanchin/DSC01348.jpg)
Halfway there! So far the roads has been pretty ok, no big rocks/holes to unsteady us yet. The tougher part is near the end, with all those chipped off bridges waiting for a victim.

Ernesto wanted a ride that includes adventure, off road, camping, trekking...and he came up with a plan to the natural national park of Malaysia to include Endau Rompin, Mt Ophir, Jerangkat, Belumut, etc, etc. Denden and myself fell for it and what a great ride this turned out to be!! Despite having only 4 days and a some heavy rain, we still managed to spend 3 exciting days in Endau Rompin. As for the rest, there will be another time!!

You got it bikeyroo. It's foot-prints of a tiger!!! We cross path with wild malayan tigers! After those prints, somehow we kept turning behind to check for the rest of the trek just in case... :)

Ok now you've got to ride 50km off road conditions to Endau Rompin for the two nights accomodation. Do let me know when you're going/joining us eh!

Reach the kampong near the jetty after about 30min walk(more like torture for me, just not good at walking with heavy stuff)

(IMG:http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y192/brendanchin/DSC01361.jpg)
Look at us tourists, cameras 'click' 'click'.....

(IMG:http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y192/brendanchin/DSC01363.jpg)
An hour of trekking after the boat ride almost killed me, might not have made it clear enough to them about not walking too much...$#%$@

Yes, we pitched our tent under the shelter, cooked our food, and by the time we got settled down, it was already nightfall.

Living in the city, hardly do we take have opportunity to stop and appreciate nature. What do we talk about? cars ,bikes, mobile phones computer games etc etc.... the same old things over and over again.

The following morning involves an hour trek to the waterfall Guilin. Above is one of the many shaky bridges we got to cross to get to Guilin.
Quite safe actually, we'll always let our guide* cross first, then follow suit.
Ah, at the base of the stairs that lead to these bridges are plenty of leeches waiting for it's next meal, before hibernating for the next few months.
Ask Ernesto and Da Vinchee, they know.

*His name is Atan, been living in the kampong for the most part of his life. Yes, he's an Orang Asli original, very safe with him around.
