Don't have the coordinates for Sg Lepoh Waterfall yet :mrgreen: Didn't bring my GPSr with me when I went up there last year. But you can use this set, courtesy of this group of great guys (http://www.waterfallsofmalaysia.com/history.php), N03° 15.03' E101° 51.94' (more info @ http://www.waterfallsofmalaysia.com/83lepok.php).

However, after reading what someone has just recently experienced there on the above website, I am having second thought about going there again. I have been there a number of times in the past but given the Orang Asli incident mentioned, better play it safe.

For the uninitiated, the road to the starting point is quite obscure. You really have to look hard for the small signboard that points to the turn-off from the main road running to Pangsung, Ulu Langat.
here's a picture of the trail.

dang, I can do complicated things with my GPSR but don't even know how to upload a saved track :mrgreen: :-k

stumbled upon these creatures when I was hiking in Youth Park with my BH and Junior.

My son saw this and got a scare of his life! Assured him that it was harmless and would curl into a ball if disturb.

We saw a dead spider when we conitnued our hike to Point 3.


Image
By looking at the eyes arrangement, I can see that it belongs to Lycosidae family, a wolf spider species.

Err...not that tall brudder. I took him to Habu Boh Tea and wife's friend's veggie estates in Lembah Bertam. Good enough for him to experience what highland hiking is all about... :mrgreen:
