Fraser's Hill Glamping

Camping at Fraser's Hill on 10-11 June 2017: en route to Kuala Kubu Baru for a cup of coffee, we visited the orchid farm at Hulu Yam Baru; at night, viewing of tarantula spiders (where this species can only be found in Fraser's Hill); next morning, relaxing at Jeriau waterfall.

Team members: KC Leong, Chong YF, ChuahTK, Jason Khoo, Elfreda Ong, Yong Fei, Jun, Adelyn Liew, Maan Li, and Siew Fun.

These few days, the weather was very dry and hot in Kuala Lumpur. Because of the hot weather, the temperature in the mountains at night was considerably cool only. Though it was a clear sky that we could see the full moon and the stars, it was quite misty and damp from 9 to 11 p.m. that our tents were wet with moisture.

When we arrived at the campsite, there were already two big groups of family members (either friends or relatives) already there. The campsite was big enough to accommodate our group comfortably. These groups of campers lacked consideration; not spending time peacefully and harmoniously with the nature and ignoring the presence of other campers: the adults were chatting and laughing very loudly for hours until 2:30 a.m.!

Overall it was a simple and fun outing spending a night in the cool mountains and woke up by the melodious tone of chirping sound of birds for a respite from the hot days in Kuala Lumpur.
