As expected, we are losing direction when reached Ampang, the only thing we can do is to ask the local ppl there. For your information, i was a local ppl .... well, er, partially maybe.:) , please don't blame on me, nowadays Ampang really changes a lots, may skyscrapers, shopping malls and many roads that i not familiar with. So, after asking one or two local ppls there, they know that is one recreational park nearby,but forgot it's name, we decided to get there, no matter how, it will be nice to visit. By using the only left 10 % my childhood memory , we reached our first station- Taman Rimba Ampang .
Entrance of Hutan Rimba Ampang
i often come here when i was kid, never thought that i have a chance to visit again. Taman Rimba Ampang was really an escape to the city next door. Not much can expected.Entrance fee is RM1 per person.The road is paved, public vehicle is not allow to enter. Probably to keep the air fresh from carbon monoxide. We came around 10am and it’s still early and quiet , peoples started coming with picnic stuffs. It’s perfect place for picnic with such a nice landscaped grounds.
We have to cruising ( by walking) about 1Km of pavement lingering with water steam and green forest around. It was just like taking us into the another world which is far away from city.
I decide to inquire my relatives at Ampang so that we will have more clearer direction. This decision was right, we know how to go there at last, by passing through Pandan Indah, and Hulu Langat Hill, we finally reached our destination. We do passing little genting(look up point) during the journey and decided to get in to take a look.
KL City Views At Look Up PointThe scenic of KL city was fantastic when look from look up point at little genting, we bet it will be nicer for the night view of KL city. We decide to have dinner here when we head back from Sungai Congkak.
Finally , we reached Sungai Congkak, well , indeed it is a recreational park, not just the river. Sungai Congkak Forest is the perfect retreat for city folks, with well developed public facilities such including a camping ground, picnic spots, chalets, rest shelters, public toilets and parking space. Same with Hutan Rimba Ampang , we have to walk along the pavement surrounding with green forest, and water stream. We decided to walk till the deepest as we can, where no one been there. Along the walkway, we had see a lots of camps among the folks , gathering session of family. Well, this is the nice place to picnic too, with the all facilities provided, we just need to bring required food and utensils.
crystal- clear water, roaring rapids and cascading river, we just cant wait to get in there. The water was cold and we just lying at the river relax ourself and fresh our mind. Some say because the cool water will burn your fat body, burn your cholesterol in your body, good, jensen sure like this very much!!
When we headed back to dinner, along the road we saw few ppl sitting and put their leg into concrete pool . As according by local ppl, this is the Hot spring. Without further ado, we put our leg inside to feel it. The water was warm, and it was not too hot for us till our leg get boil. Anyway, the water was drawn from the river nearby , so it was quite dirty, we just rest here about 30 minutes before we get back our journey.
Hot Spring at Hulu LangatAs mentioned, we having dinner at Look up point, the night view of KL city is awesome, having dinner with this environment is just nice!! That's end for our trips , we get back around 9pm, it was comfortable journey after all, we got what we have and bonus as well to get to visit other two places.. yeah, forgot to mention that FC jensen lost his sandal ( cost : rm100 ) at look up point, any one found it when visit there , please do inform him :)
