Bites Tale : We enjoyed ourselves there except that water runs very small at night for shower.. the scenery was great.. did a lot of picture taking.. we even saw monkeys mating.. but the weather didn't allowed us for night cruise to watch fire flies... and we didn't managed to see hornbills.. they said one must be very lucky to spot a hornbill... may be next time!
It's his idea to come to this lodge located at Klias, Beaufort... that is approximately 100 km from the city. It took us about 1 hour and 45 mins to reach there.
A good choice indeed.

It's really nice to get out of town once in awhile and enjoy such breathtaking view!
