Cruise & Jungle Trekking
The ecotourist will find much to delight him were he to take an upriver
cruise of Sungai Kelantan into the virgin rainforests of Kelantan. The
secrets of the jungle will unfold itself if he looks and listens; and
the little villages along the bank is an added bonus. Go to Kuala Krai
and take the boat which leaves at 10.00 am for Dabong. The 2-hour boat
ride affords ample time to take in the grandeur of the rainforests.
reaching Dabong, you have about three hours to while away before
catching the boat back to Kuala Krai at 3.15 pm. Take a stroll around
the village and observe the villagers at their daily chores.
Alternatively, you can venture up to Jelawang to stay the night in one
of the chalets. A one and a half-hour jungle trek brings you to the
Jelawang Waterfall, spectacular and every bit worth the effort. If you
decide to return to Kuala Krai on the same day, you can catch a taxi
from Kuala Krai to Kota Bharu. Please note that there are no boats
available on Fridays.
The southbound train from Dabong brings you to Gua Musang in two and a
half hours. Here is where the majestic Lata Beringin is located. Gua
Musang also lies within the National Park amidst the splendour of the
world's oldest rainforests. Explore the many limestone caves, cascading
waterfalls or enjoy a river boat safari. There are similar trips
organised by the Tourist Information Centre in Kota Bharu. You are
advised to book in advance.
A favourite among the locals, this waterfall is only 12 metres high but
nonetheless, draws the crowds. Go to Pasir Puteh, and from here you can
board a taxi to Jeram Lenang.
Location: Off the Pasir
Jeram Pasu is by far the most popular. A dip in the crystal clear icy
water does wonders to the spirit. Proceed to Padang Pak Amat and from
here by taxi to the waterfalls, which is about 8 km away.
Location: Situated off the Kota
Bharu - Pasir Puteh road at Kampung Pak Amat.
At 120m, it is also one of the highest waterfalls in the country.The
magnificent view and lush surroundings make this a popular camping spot.
