I made my way across some rocks to have a better look at the downstream waters from Pulai Waterfall. The path beside the stream that leads to the main waterfall is paved with huge rocks, rendering it inaccessible to the general public. This is due to a tragedy that happened some years back. A thunderstorm brought about a major landslide of mud, rocks and sand, claiming the lives of three village children whose bodies were never found. Until today, the path has not been cleared and the best way to reach the waterfall is to walk in the river and head upstream.
It goes without saying that I didn’t make the attempt as I wasn’t quite sure about what dangers lurked beneath, other than the knowledge that there were leeches screaming for my blood! However, I did manage to get some morning shots of the sun’s rays coming through the forest canopy.
