We stopped just outside of the park in Lundu, a sleepy beach town, for a quick snack before our hike. Richard told me the toast at this particular shop was famous and that people would drive the hour and a half from Kuching just to eat and then drive home. Well, kudos to them but I'm not sure what the fuss was about - it was just toast... There were actually multiple times during my trip which I was told such and such food was famous and that I must eat it - I personally think that whole famous phrase was thrown around a bit too liberally in
As we got closer to the park the rain gods decided to pour down on us once again, but what's a little water? The park ranger notified us that the trails would be a bit dangerous and also there were no flowers in bloom, but we made the drive so we decided to at least visit a waterfall. I also found dangerous to be thrown around quite loosely during my travels - there was nothing wrong with the trails and even the current in the waterfall pools was mild. We made the trek to the 3rd waterfall trail and stayed for a swim, despite the freezing water temperatures and my timidness at getting it, it was a lot of fun.
