After breakfast at Restaurant Mydeen in Cheras, near the Taman Connaught BHP station, we set off for the starting point at the Sungai Congkak Forest Reserve around 8:00am. Along the way, we sort of lost the main convoy of cars, later finding out that the rest had made a detour to avoid the RM1.00 toll after Phoenix Plaza.
Somewhere down the road, we encountered our first obstacle, a fallen tree with it's trunk stretched clear across the road. Clambering over it took some time and once across, we continued, shortly reaching this inconspicuos point on the road where a small path led into the jungle. There were no signs whatsoever to show it was the beginning of anything.
As I finish writing this blog, I couldn't help remembering what Aaron said somewhere down our endless hike back...
"We did not conquer Chenuang, we survived it."
I wholeheartedly agree. Until the next time... :)
