Genting Highlands is fun! There's to much to do there! One of the major tourist attraction in Malaysia, Genting Highlands is a hill resort with hotels, theme parks, a casino and a variety of other entertainment options! This resort offers entertainment for the whole family - fun rides, theme parks, dining options, souvenir shops et all. It's just an hour's drive for capital Kuala Lumpur, making it easier to travel and spend a day having fun there, if one is based out of Kuala Lumpur! One of the world' oldest rainforests, Taman Negara is estimated to be over 130 million years old. This one line of information about the place won me over! When in Malaysia, I want to explore this treasure-land overflowing with nature's bounties.

Taman Negara Pahang Malaysia
Somehow I do not seem to get enough of forests. The more the merrier. Thick, dense with a canopy of trees, impenetrable, rich with flora and fauna that has stood the test of time, this virgin expanse has been a mystery since ages. Rain forest with geological and ecological diversity has allured me since my last visit to Malaysia but unfortunately I couldn't visit her. She is more of an enigma, virgin and mesmerizing. She reveals little and shrouds the rest that leaves you wanting more. Meeting the local Bateq tribes and getting to know their way of living, culture would give a completely different perspective. Living close to nature surrounded by river, trees, waterfalls, birds far away from the concrete city life, is a fulfilling and serene experience that clears the cobwebs off your mind. A refreshing tonic to replenish the soul.
I couldn’t help thinking that when I complete this 5 km route, I am almost at Tana Rata of Mt K. The total route that was planned is 10 km. We started only at 11am and stopped often. It’s good being ignorant at this point, for then we didn’t have to worry about being still stranded in the mountains without lights, until a group we met warned us about it. They had started in the opposite direction at 9 am and expected to complete at our beginning point at 4 pm. So we were way too slow. They advised instead of doing the full 10 km, that we should take a shorter route to go down, saving us 1.5km. My leader agreed. So thinking that we were now saved, he assured us we could take our time. So we posed for hundreds of of photos, had picnic. The green forest gave way to grass land at the ridge. The lalangs were indeed beautiful. As we walked further along the ridge of the mountain, we saw signs warning us of wild cows. I am not very sure how these cows happened to be here but their presence keeps the pastures trimmed and green.
Nirwana Maju Taman Kurnia Jaya Kuantan Pahang Malaysia
Nirwana Maju in Bangsar is very popular with locals and expats for its banana-leaf meals; you'll find them sitting at basic tables and chairs in suits and cocktail dresses. The basic Sadya (South Indian Thali) is vegetarian with yummy non-vegetarian add-ons like deep fried chicken and fish.
