The hard part our adventurous day .....


did you read the blog about our very muddy drive in the Cameron Highlands?

did you read the blog posting on the start of our adventurous jungle trek?


well then link back to these first before you go any further:

The Muddy Drive

The start of our adventurous day.

Good, now you have the general picture of the five of us ladies doing some Bush Bashing!!

But after the little trek across the Bamboo Bridge the going got tough, really tough  ....... BUT, the tough got going, which was more important!

I really must say here that we all supported one another and I doubt anyone of us would have continued on with the trek had it not been for the care and support from each and everyone of us.  I had more support than I thought possible, if it was not for Christine grabbing my hand every now and then ... I would have given up.

If Susan was not at the other end of that log across the river, I would never have made it across.

Though each of us were much stronger than we thought we were.

Christine has done much more bushwalking than any of us, Suxin has done more mountain climbing (I think!) but we were 'as one' on this adventure into the Cameron Highlands on Wednesday June 30 2010.

and then we managed to see (some of) the Raffelsia - but next blog post will be about what we saw and what we didn't see!!

On the way back down we stopped for a well earned rest and some refreshing bamboo juice.

at this point I am sure you would have realised that only four of us were enjoying the fresh taste of pure bamboo juice ...... in some of these images you will see Susan in the background recording all this hilarity!

The driver (Raja) and our guide had to walk into the jungle BAREFOOT to get the bamboo that was full of the juice just for us.....

after seeing 'dead flowers' .... we had to start the trek back again ... an hour of walking thru mud, climbing over tree's, crossing the river, scrambling up the muddy 'mountain', grabbing the bamboo stick as we slithered down as well, watching out for 'creepy crawlies' of all shapes and sizes .....

and just generally looking after each other too.

we arrived back at our vehicle and ready to head to the Boh Tea Plantation....

more to follow soon...
