Playground by the Forestry Department, the beginning of trail 6!
This time, we wanted to explore Trail no.6 after we have seen the sign board last time. This trail starts at the end of trail 4, by the Malaysia’s Forestry Department. It was a clear sign at the end of trail no.4 and you will never miss it. However, you had to walk by a private house and up hill. There weren’t any sign around that part so we almost could not find the path. After a few hundred meters, we came upon a camping ground by the river with bathroom facility. The river is so clear and the water is so cool! Personally I think this is the most beautiful trail. This trail is not short, is 1.99km (it wasn’t that short as it seems to me) along the path, we saw a life red snake lied in the middle of the path. At first we though it was dead but when we stared at it for a minute, it moved! That freaks the hell out me! As I have been told the more colorful an animal or plat it is, the more poisonous it gets! While we were walking on Trail no.
4, we met a British man on the trail and he suggested walking with us and he could lead the way on Trail no.6. We had a pleasant walk with him and found that he is originally from England but he has stayed in Australia for 20years and migrated to Cameron Highlands
for 8 years now. He is staying with his Indonesia wife and had a 3 year old baby. I was like: Why Cameron Highland? I guess must be the pleasant weather! We are lucky to have him on the trail because the showed us a short cut where we could come out from Trail no.4 by a flight of concrete stair!
We did not get to trek on Trail no.11 last time, we were thinking: hey, they might have cleaned up the land slide part of the trail.
We got up early that day and off we went to Trail no.11. It is located at the Tan’s Camellia Garden by Oly apartment and it shared the same entrance as Trail no.10. We walked for an hour and came to the part where it had land slide the other day. Nope! It was not clean up however it has been so dry and we guessed there were some other people had walk through this trail as we could see some foot prints on the hill. We tried to walk through it by using our stick. It was doable but it was also a little dangerous. We somehow managed to get through it and kept on walking. Although we knew this trail will meet up with Trail no.12 (which is a long way up and down Mt. Predah) There were no sign stated how far (in distance)this trail was so we just kept walking for about 2 hours until we were really tired. Time to quit and time for lunch! We retraced our steps and back to the camellia garden.
