Sungai Perdik, Hulu Langat

(view with IE, for some reason if viewed on Mozilla(some pics go missing)
Hiking the track at Sg Perdik is relatively easy and suitable for almost all ages of children.  While looking for Sg Perdik, we got lost a bit, coz there's no clear signage. We finally found the place, after getting directions from some of the local village folks. Basically, it's situated midway between the junction to Sungai Gabai Waterfall and the Sungai Chongkak.

With 5 kids (the youngest being 4), it took us one hour to reach the VERY BEAUTIFUL, MAGNIFICENT falls, and one hour to get down. All in all, because we went during the rainy season, most of the track was wet and muddy with leeches! So it'll be quite a horror trail for some, especially if you hate bugs and creepy crawlies. A Leech sock will be useful, or just go during DRY season.

If you're a calm parent like me, I basically told my kids, there was nothing to be afraid off, and no point in screaming as that will not get the leech off. And to prove it to them, when I found one crawling on me, I yanked it out, stomped on it and said "See nothing to be afraid!" although i HATE the sight of leeches n the way it feels on my skin. My husband, impressed, told me "wow, you were really calm with the leeches! I am surprised!"
I said, "I've to practice what I preach. I can't go screaming after I've told them to be calm! " haha..

Anyway, if going there, wear sandals, coz you have to cross the river 3 times. Bring a mozzi repellant, picnic food and brace yourself for leeches. I've found though, that using repellant on   the socks, lessens the chances of getting a leech up your leg. Anyway, seriously, this is a beautiful place!

Jo, did most of the track by herself, as I watched carefully from behind.

the beautiful Perdik Falls. It is really huge, just that I was not able to really capture the magnificence of it with my cam and didn't wanna risk stepping into falls as current was strong.

When you get done tracking, you can head to this lovely Thai restaurant Fish Farm Thai Restaurant @ Ampang - Ulu Langat Road  which serves absolutely delicous food and lovely ambience
