We set off from Spore around 6am via private transport and reached the park HQ around 930pm. Journey time (including custom clearance) from Spore to park HQ was about 3.5 hrs. To save time, we ate sandwich in the mini-bus and didn't stop along the way for breakfast. Climb registration including safety briefing took about 30 min. We started the... More

Its beautly, what is sadly left of it, is forever marred with debris, plastic trash, discarded bottles - also always there! The lower reaches of the waterfall, where shallow pools draw bathers are the worst polluted. Upstream, is no better. As the water cascades down several breaks, the strangling trash... More
