Usually I will update my blog every weekend. But for the last weekend I have been to some where very special and nice. It is the Penang National Park – Pantai Kerachut. I have been here before and this is the second time we visited. This time we went together with a Nature Tour Guide who explained to us the various parts of the wild. I just love this place because I can let go of all my work and worries here.
Warning: this post will contain a lot of beautiful pictures, please be prepared to scroll until your fingers get cramps.
This is the entrance of the National Park. The office is made from wood to symbolise the nature. Unfortunately, it is sad to see that they had to cut off many beautiful trees in order to build this beautiful office. *Sigh*
The view after a short distance of the entrance.
Signboard reminder to public to protect and conserve the National Park
The hanging Pineapple. Note this is for display purpose only not for your mouth.
Bridge to Taman Negara (It reminds me of the movie “Bridge to Terabithia”)
Tongkat Ali tree, according to folk’s law the height of the tree is equivalent to the root of the tree.
According to our tour guide, this damn big tree can release cool air equivalent to 20 horse powers of air conditioners.
A kind of Fern leave
Trail from the way to Pantai Kerachut
I remember my biology teacher used to bring us a tree branch which has the smell of “Sarsi soft drink”, she asked us whether we knew the name of the tree and after 10 years now I can answer her. It’s called (Medang Kemangi – cinnamomum porrectum). For those who don’t believe it, come to smell it yourself, of course 50sen per smell.
Tree trunk which blocked the way but we still managed to cross over.
The dry season which made the stream even more shallow.
Monkey cup on the ground.
The place where we setup our tents.
Starting up the fire using woods, dry leaves and charcoal.
Some one is giving instruction on how to cook. I wonder the instructor knows how to cook.
Turtle at the hatching center, so cute.
Scenery by the seaside
The scene on the way to waterfall.

Thumbs up for the ladies.
Pictures of our tour guide in naked, priceless.
Somebody is so free to stack up the crystal stones.
I am squeezing myself into the picture as I am holding the camera.

Easier for me now, as the boat man helped us take the photo.
