Air Terjun Chamang (Chamang Waterfall),Bentong ,Pahang

an over excited xplorer jr at the kenduri









myself at my best friend wedding in RAUB

My trip to Raub took me two hours from KL.Raub is just a small town in Pahang .It is located around 20 km from Bentong and approximately one fifth in size from bentong. Although small in size , the town is well kept and clean . It was raining heavily in Raub and i didn't have the chance to truely explore Raub and Kuala Gandah . Along the way i only made a pit stop in Lurah Bilut ( the first Felda Settlement in Malaysia) and Air Terjun Chamang.Xplorer Jr had been quite active(over excited) in the car and it's quite difficult to control her inside the car.I had decided to cut short the trip and went back home early.

AIR TERJUN CHAMANG
Set up by the Pahang Forestry Department, Hutan Lipur Sungai Chamang (Chamang River Recreation Park) is just one of over twenty of these small and accessible forest parks in the state. As part of the Bukit Tinggi Forest Reserve, large tropical rainforest trees surround the river provide a peaceful retreat for city folks.
From the main road , the journey to the waterfall is around 8 km . Unfortunately the road is not well maintain which made the journey unpleasant .The ferocity of waterfall is just amazing and honestly this is the first time that i had witness massive volume of water gushing with a thunderous sound . Initially i plan to climb the side wall of the waterfall for better angle but hearing the thunderous sound of the waterfall alone is enough to make you tremble , furthermore there is a sign board nearby reminding you of the lives that the waterfall had taken . It is truly a sight to behold.


I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CONGRATULATE MY FRIEND , AMILIN ON HIS MARRIAGE , MAY YOU LEAD A HAPPY LIFE IN THE FUTURE WITH YOUR WIFE

    I LOVE to explore Air Terjun Chamang. It looks like Sg. Chiling Waterfalls in Selangor.

    Avoid waterfall outing during rainy days. The volume of water flowing down the falls cannot be predicted. Better safe than sorry.

    Did you explore Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary?

    Cheers!
