Durian Perangin Waterfall Langkawi Kedah Malaysia
This 14 tier waterfall is truly a sight to behold and is accessible after a short trek to through the rain forest. It is a quiet place with freshness in its being. The paths we took for the short trek were surrounded by Rambutan fruit trees. Also on your way you’ll find many monkeys who are kind of mischievous so it’s better to take care of your belongings while you trek up.
Langkawi sky bridge
Langkawi sky bridge in Malaysia is one of the most scenic places in the continent. Not only is it aesthetically wonderful, but it has its name among the world’s strangest cable stayed suspension bridges. The entire bridge, in its elementary form had to be lifted to the top of the mountain and was later assembled to its current position. The magnanimous structure that it is, its view is bound to mesmerize. The bridge hangs at about 100 meter above ground. Acrophobic people, beware!!

On the trail, along the calming winding river you will be exposed to the wonders of the park’s marine ecosystem and flora and fauna like the overhanging Bogak trees, brown eagles, tree crabs, iguanas and macaques.
After struggling for almost 5 hours we arrived at Hutan Mati, literally translate to English as The Dead Forest. The Dead Forest is a striking grey and white area filled by dead trees from the effect of the Papandayan Mountain eruption in 2002. As a result of the eruption, the Nangklak crater wall collapsed and caused the Cibeureum Gede River to be filled with the avalanche material. This caused severe flooding at that time. Seeing the Dead Forest does takes you to another world. The striking black color of the tree branches and light grey ground filled with sulfur, made this area surreal. Views like this are not encountered every day; it can be seen in professional photos or paintings but rarely in real life. Yet, here I was, in awe of the view.
Pulau Dayang Bunting Langkawi
