one of our walks - Cameron Highlands

There are quite a few walking trails in the Cameron Highlands area of Malaysia ..... but for a very easy walk into Tanah Rata from The SmokeHouse Hotel, walk towards the Parit Falls, which means 'Pit', which unfortunately reflects the sad state of its affairs. The waterfalls are polluted with garbage and debris, though the surrounding forest is still very much pristine. Parit Falls can be accessed from the main road at a right turning just before Brinchang Town. The waterfalls collect at a wide pool that may be used for swimming, but the temperatures are freezing and the rubbish floating really is not that welcoming for swimming!

But the walk was interesting.

From the hotel the first thing you see on the walk is the All Souls Anglican Church!
 
  and some of the other things we saw when we walked to Tanah Rata....



 typical style home in the area .....
and to the left off the side of the road towards the Parit Falls ......






some of the pathway can be muddy after the heavy rain ....... but wear comfortable shoes and watch your step!




 and then at the end of the walk, you come to a large park full of flowers which are all just so beautiful and then straight into the town of Tanah Rata .......
