#3 JUNE ESCAPADE: Sg. Lembing


Sg. Lembing is a small village in Pahang, 40 min drive from Kuantan. It was once the richest town in Pahang and famous as a tin mining town during British colonial years (Sg Lembing is in Sejarah text book as well, LOL). The main street has two rows of old shoplots and is splitted by big old trees. It only has one cute n small petrol station and operates at certain hours. I went thr twice so mix up the old n new pics =) Also grab few from other sources XD



*Sg. Lembing Muzeum
The muzeum is an old bungalow with many interesting old artifacts. The local ppl said it's haunted =.= Anyway, you can visit it to know more bout the history of this lovely place.


*Rainbow Waterfall
The first day is raining so we go to hot spring and postpone the trip. Next day, we wake up at early morning and start the journey at 6.30am. Around one hour of journey to get into the deep forest by jeep, another one hour of hiking to the top of waterfall. The best equipment for hiking is rubber slippers and NO sport shoes to prevent falling down from slippery rocks. The height of the waterfall is just like a 7 storeys building. It feels like raining there because the impact of water flowing from top to the rock down there. I didn't get into the water but still get wet. The downpour making us cold and I can't stop shivering. The tour guides lit fire and cook hot water. We are provided maggie hot cup and milo for breakfast!!! Feel so warm and nice with that, hot cup becoming so so delicious! omg, ROFL~
Okay, back to the name of the waterfall, RAINBOW, yupe. You can see rainbow at the waterfall, max is 4 rainbows from up to down. We manage to see 2 tat day and I'm happy with it. Magnificent view~



*Panorama Hill
It's a famous spot to see the sunrise. We start to hike at 5.30am and it takes around 40min to get to the summit. Too bad the sun is blocking by cloud that day T.T but the sea of clouds which surrounded the hill is breathtaking as if we are in some kind of mystical hill.


The last pic was grabbed from website bcz we didn't manage to see such beautiful one, the view was blocked by clouds.

You won't know the beauty of Sg. Lembing until you get there. Trust me =)
