Yesterday, NUS Rovers returned from a 2D2N trip to Pahang, Malaysia on Expedition Over the Rainbow. We visited Rainbow…
During the recess week in February 2018, NUS Rovers organised a 2D2N “Expedition Over the Rainbow” in Pahang, Malaysia.
Our adventure officially begun when we boarded our chartered night bus from Johor to Sungei Lembing – which means Spear River in Malay. This town that we’ll be spending a night in was once a booming tin mining town and had one of the deepest and largest mine pit in the world!
Before our 45 minutes hike to Rainbow Falls, we had to take a one hour bumpy and exciting jeep ride. At the end of the trek, what greeted us was a beautiful rainbow. While some of us rewarded ourselves with the cool water of the falls and with some beautiful pictures, the rest decided that a cup of milo and cup noodles would do the trick.
In the afternoon, we made a stop by Panching Falls (Sungei Pandan Falls), another beautiful waterfall in Pahang before making our way to Kuantan for our R&R. We were given a few hours to spend in the state capital of Pahang where we stopped by the beach (Teluk Cempedak) and had dinner over there.
Early next morning, we did a 45 minutes hike up Bukit Panorama for the sun rise before our journey back to Johor in the late morning.
This trip would not have been possible if not for those who have joined us on this adventure!
