Trip to Gunung Gading

My fren asked me yesterday bout this, then baru i tingat. Stil pending my stories on kesah pengembaraan para wanita cun ke gunung gading. Maap maap, serious terlupa!

First of all, fyi gunung gading is salah satu taman negara yg pemes d sarawak. Paling pemes dgn kewujudan bunga raflesia yg tumbuh subur di sekitar kawasan gunung tersebut. But stil u nid to tanya pegawai yg jaga kt sana bout jadual the flowers will bloom out. Cos the flowers tak bloom all the time k. So dun miss it!

We went there for 2days 1night trip. 16-17 june 2012. Five of us - Sri, Riz, Ekin, Liza, n me! Bertolak a bit lewat around 11am cos riz kena kije jap pagi tu. It took bout one n half hour driving from kuching. Sampai sana tros checkin chalet. There are chalets n hostels, but need to book earlier la cos very limited. Rate murah tau.  Cik sri selaku organizer booked for us 3weeks before we went there. Tq honey! After checked in tros lunch dulu, lapo gile weh! Btw sana xde tmpt mkn k, n xde dijual sebarang makanan n minuman. So we tapau siap2 before sampai sana. Lepas mkn n solat, tros bersiap2 n went for our first trekking n hiking to waterfall 1. Yang ni dekat je, bout half hour sampai la ke destination n mandiiiiii! Best gile mandi waterfall kt situ! Plus i mmg suka mndi kt waterfall ;)  After nearly two hours mandi, then turun n sgah jap kt sungai buatan blakang our chalet. Mandi again, tp kt sini kojap je. Xbestla mandi kolam. Then balik ke chalet for solat n siap2 tu xtvt bbq d mlm ari.

Kol 630pm we started sediakan unggun api tuk operasi bakar membakar ayam, sosej n potatoes. Lama gakla nak tunggu bara api tu menjadi ;p Dah siap masak half of our meals, kitorg duduk mkn kat atas lantai depan tmpt bbq tu, ala2 picnic la kan. Wokeh ni tragedi paling sentap! Tgh in the middle menikmati fud, dtg plak sekor asu. Asu is ibanese language yg bermaksud anjing yer kawan2. Asu itam n beso tu pusing2 tawaf kitorg berlima yg dok dlm bulatan ni. Serious berdebar2. Liza da takot bebenor sampai tros xdpt mkn. Yg lain berempat plak tros je mkn walopun dlm hati mmg takot weh, tp ttp sambung melantak abeh gak 3 4 ketul ayam tu. Bila si asu tu berundur tmpt lain, sorang2 bangun angkut makanan masuk umah. Tp blom abeh operasi membakar la tau. Ekin n me turun samb mbakar. Kunun paling berani la dlm ramai2 kitorg yg penakut. What to do... terpaksa buat2 berani la kan, tp dlm hati only God knows. Uh... That asu keep dtg dekat us, pusing2. Lagi berdebar hati ni, lg dekat asu dtg. But we managed to tenangkan diri. Bile hati tenang, asu tu g tmpt lain. Deria anjing kan sgt kuat. I think die bleh tau kite takot or not. So walopun takot kena try tenangkan diri. Finally berjaya gak kitorg berdua sipkan membakar. N samb melantak dlm umah. Serious mencabar weh! Owh maap xde picas during bbq. All are p&c ;p

Nex morning after breakfast tros checkout n simpan barang dlm keta. N memulakan trekking n hiking ke waterfall 7, very near to the puncak gunung. Kali ni mmg serious mencabar. Curam benor trailnye! Plus licin. I would say gunung gading is 2x or more lebih mencabar dr bako. Ekin n me lead the team kt depan. So far alhamdulillah i was ok n xpancit. Mungkin sbb slalu joging 2x seminggu kot. But ade yg pancit among us, so kena byk kali pitstop tuk rehat. Apepun we finally managed to reach the top. Congratulation to all of us! Girls power! ;p Subhanallah.. Waterfall kt atas sgt cantik! N sgt best mandi! Owh otw to the top we passed by waterfall3, but we were warned not to go there. I ade intai2 tmpt tu. Serious sgt2 cantik!!! Tp situ kawasan keras. They even tied up n close all laluan masuk. The staff there warned us berkali2 before we started our hiking. Somemore dat day langsung xde team yg hiking. So only five of us kt dlm utan gunung tu! N wif all ladies only! 

                       before started our hiking to the puncak                                  almost there!
                                                                          five of us ~ before terjun mandi again!

Apepun kepuasan hiking n mandi air terjun tu sgt best. Teruja nak g trekking n hiking lg! Actually i bought flight tix to miri this coming october. Plan to go to gua niah. Tp nampaknya mcm xkesampaian je cos masa tu inshaAllah i dah berhijrah ke tempat baru. Xpela blom ade rezki. Mungkin balik nnt ade kenal sape2 yg berminat nak g. Then can organize a trip there =) Anyone berminat nak temankan i?? Huhu

yours truly ;)
