My Trip To Sungai Lembing

By SK Liew

Sg Lembing River

View At Bukit Panorama

Gua Charas

Rainbow Waterfall

Dear folks,

I just came back from a trip to Sungai Lembing yesterday. Maybe you are already quite familiar with this town.

It is an old tin mining town in Pahang operated by British Colonial Masters long before and after Independence of Malaya in 1957. It was abandoned twenty years ago.The town is predominated by Chinese folks speaking my Khek dialect.It is now a sunset town suitable for folks like me in the sunset years. It is no wander why many tourists complaint that it was hard to catch a sun rise in the the dawn on top of Lembing Hill.

Several tourist attractions can be found around this town like Rainbow Waterfall, Tin Mining Musuem, Abandoned Underground Tunnels of Tin Mine, Lembing Hill scenery and Charas Cave.

To get to Rainbow Waterfall is quite an "exclusive" experience which money alone may not acquire. One has to be prepared to go through a one and a half hours of bumpy ride in either a lorry or 4-wheel drive uphill and then hike for another hour or so before reaching the destination.

My other observation of Charas Cave still puzzles me. To enter the cave one has to climb up staircase.It is unique in the sense that in name it is supposed to be a Siamese temple (Wat). Inside the cave, one will find statues of Buddha and Kuan Yin. But, one will be surprised that the resident monks inside the cave are neither Siamese nor Chinese. They are INDIAN SAMIS. To a person like me with a limited knowledge of Buddhism, it is hard to convince him that a "Wat", "Kuan Yin statues" and "Indian samis" can be put together under the same roof inside such a gigantic cave.

Through my experience,i would like to suggest to those would be visitors to the spots mentioned is-- bring along with you lots of T-shirts and drinking water. You will be assured of continuous sweating in the process of hiking.This is a good exposure which you should try once in a life time,would you?
