|Long before entering the town of Dabong, from the east, this waterfall can be seen over 8 kilometers away. It releases water from the Stong Mountain Range at a saddle. The word "Stong" actually derived from the English word "stone" Early travelers were fascinated that the mountain range is made up of one huge boulder. The name of "stone hill" was gradually accepted and cut short to "Stong"!|
This is a quaint township with almost no traffic and narrow roads. From the train station, it is a 5 minutes walk to boat crossing at Sungei Galas. Van will transport us to the resort.
|Though not officially confirmed, reliable sources had claimed that the Stong Waterfall is about 270 meters tall, making it the tallest in SouthEast Asia. [see below]|
From the compound of the resort, a 10 minute climb will take you to the bottom of the main waterfall. Here the water from the wet seasons have made a gigantic clearings in the rock face.
Watch the sky as we are going to spend a night at the camp site. Water will fill the place rather swiftly
The picture [left under] very beautiful and clear shots are donated.
The water overflowing over a protrusion or ledge before hurling down the near vertical cliff wall.
The actual scene is very dramatic, see our model on the right photograph on top!
This is the mainscene but not the only one
Here is a cute little waterfall in the midst of the rack face where one can have a swell time to play in the tiny deep pool |
Another trail leads to the top of this main waterfall, and with more trekking? Another 6 waterfalls!
| From the base camp, we will climb around the main waterfall, upstream to find more waterfalls. The rest of the days we will hike up to Gunong Stong and Gunong Ayam. |
