  • Air Terjun 500 @ Sungai Lembing

    Also know as Air Terjun Pelangi (Rainbow Waterfall). Air Terjun 500 was what the locals used to call it....because it is about 500 feets high...

    Went there today to recce the place....but by the time we reached the waterfall, there was no more rainbow. The usual time to see the rainbow is between 0830 - 1030.

    From Sungai Lembing, we travelled using Toyota Hilux for about 1 hour.



    We had to cross a river which was a waist deep, and followed by a 1 hour uphill by foot. Fuhhh...it was so physical.





    Very unfortunate for us because just after only 30 minutes there.....it started to rain. Looking at the dark cloud behind us, the guide decided to call of the day

    It was a challenge to carry a heavy Lowepro bag crossing the rivers, walking through the steep and wet jungle. What more challenging was to shoot the waterfall when water droplets were all over the place.

        Not during this wet season. April or May will be better Lily. We are planning for another trip during that time. dR Ali will arrange that I will just follow.

                      Did you get to see rainbow? According to the locals, you should be able to see rainbow at 11am and 1pm.

                      I was there a few years back, but I missed the rainbow time

                        Nope. The rainbow time is between 0830 to 1030. If anybody wanna go, you should leave from Sg Lembing at about 0630. Or there is a chalet halfway to the river where one can stay overnight. Not sure the price. But usually tourist will use a small lorry to go there....Have to stand all the way. And RM300 per trip including a guide.

                        If you go by your own 4WD, be prepared to get markings all over the car's body. See my first pic about the condition of the road.
