Taiping & around
A mixed collection of pictures....
Friends of mine had found an interesting series of cascades and waterfalls, near Batu Kurau, north of Taiping. A good reason to visit my favorite town again.

On arrival first a visit of a baby fall, at Bukit Jana. Nothing special, actually. Next to the Golf Course.
The next day I had invited George to join me for the Air Hitam waterfall. Quite near to Taiping, but really countryside.

We could park our car near the water catchment area, from where a trail followed the river. Not easy to go down to the river, the slopes were steep. But we found the impressive main waterfall.

On our way back, we scrambled down to another cascade. An amazing number of leeches.

This region is beautiful countryside, many traditional Malay houses.
When I visited this region 4 years ago, I found a quaint barbershop where I had a haircut. The same barber was still there, so of course I had another haircut, for RM 4 only!!

The next day, we went to the Casual Market for our breakfast. The Hungry Ghosts celebration was going on. Big celebration.

Just an ordinary weekend in Taiping.

Jan, kwai loh having a haircut, traditional Malaysian style, in a cave -- this photo will surely be of historical interest.

A nice photo album of your latest venture.
