I had to stop for at least a photo of this jaw dropping scenery at the East-West Highway R&R even though every one on bus was waiting for me. Mandatory.
Remember when I was young, my teachers used to tell us creepy stories of elephants and monkeys and wildlife etc. encountered along this road. Especially at night. The day I had to hold my urine for hours in traffic jam here, I can't believe all those bs. By the way, it was 15 years ago, so it might still be true. It's now a busy road with a crowded R&R and long queue at toilets.
I departed to Kelatan at night so I literally had been sleeping all the way to the destination. I like the day time journey better because you get to see this beautiful place that make you impossible to fall asleep.
I also learnt that this is the jungle where the communists had hidden and the route the Japanese had cycled to the major cities in Malaysia after landed from Tumpat. So it is true this place was scary.
P/s Will update the photos from this trip in the coming post :)
