Salu Falls CNY 2010
On 14-2-2010 (CNY) Rani and I, on our way to Pos Dipang, visited the Salu waterfalls. We managed to find a Mamak stall in Kampar for lunch, of course all the Chinese were in CNY mood.

During my first visit of Salu, I was not very impressed by the two waterfalls there, but later Siang Hui had told me that there were more falls upstream. And they turned out to be quite attractive.

Of course the lower falls were crowded by day-trippers, but the upper falls were remarkably quiet and clean.

Between Salu and Pos Dipang there are not many places to have a coffee, but we found one in Sg Siput Selatan. Open because there was a CNY-party going on in the hall opposite the shop. Of course we were invited...:-)

Looks like Gng Tempurung/Gajah in the background.

You are right. Gunung Tempurung is about 5 km north of hutan lipur Salu

5km? I would say 1 km from the Salu car park !

Jan said last week he hadn't noticed the heatwave! He must be living in aircon 24 hours when he's not in the forest!!!

I did not ask, but I am sure that Henry would feel very much at ease in their company..:-)

I mean the distance to the massif as the crow flies!

This is a nice place to relax, close one's eyes and picture how the place looks during the wet season. What a massive rock structure.
