The waterfall~ <3

I had been there last year... but, I did not prepare for swimming... huhu...

The water was really COLD! It was freezing!!! >.<

Besides enjoying the chilly water, I was also enjoying FISH SPA!!! hahaha...

Bako National Park, Kuching~

Bako trip was exciting but yet... tiring! huhu...
*Bako National Park is the oldest national park in Sarawak, established in 1957~*
Let me take you to Bako National Park in this post~ =)
So, here the journey starts~ hehehe...
There were altogether 12 of us~

Kuching City to Kampung Bako
From Kuching to Kampung Bako, it took about 40 minutes drive. *It is about 37km from Kuching city*
Do not worry of getting lost... as there are many sign boards around showing the route to the national park~ =)
We reached there at about 9 am~
There is a visitor registration counter at the boat jetty of Kampung Bako...
We registered at the center and pay the entrance fee~
Being students, we only paid RM50 for 12 person...So, it's about RM 4.20 per student~ =)
* I really do not know exactly how much per student...as I heard, they gave us discount~ hehe.. 
But, I guess it should be RM5 per student~So, remember to bring your student card if you are a student! *
For adults, it's RM 10 per person. 

You can see this at the visitor registration counter~
The boat jetty at Kampung Bako~

Beware of crocodiles!!! =)

Kampung Bako to Bako National Park (Park Headquarter)
Then, we took a boat to the national park~
It's RM 18 per person for 2-way trip. You will need to add another RM7 in order to board the boat at Pandan Kecil Beach. So, it's RM 25 altogether~ =)
* No student price for the boat ride! >.< *
The boat ride was about 15 minutes to Bako National Park.

This is our boat number 8! On the way to Bako National Park~ Wheee~~~ =)  

The beautiful scenery by the sea~

Look at those excited faces~ LOL...
Almost arrive at Bako National Park~ =)
Welcome to Bako National Park~ =)
The moment when we arrived there, there were two wild boars walking towards the beach! LOL...
Tthis is the first time I see wild boars with my own eyes!
*Frankly speaking, they were really kinda ugly-looking~ No offense though... hehehe *

The two wild boars from afar~
Then, we walk to the environment education center for a short briefing... We were  also given a map. =)

Park Headquater
This the map of Bako~
This is some of the trail~
Park Headquarter to Telok Pandan Kecil * accidentally detoured to Telok Paku >.<*
After the briefing at the center, we were supposed go to Telok Pandan kecil... It's 2.5km walk~
There will be a beach there~ and we were supposed to board the boat back to Kampung Bako there~
But, the 5 of us took the wrong turn and headed to Telok Paku..huhu... So, we wasted more than 40 minutes and walked for another 1.6km... huhu...

How on earth we did not see this sign?!!! >.<

Heading to jungle trekking...all smiles~ =)

Posing as if I'm not tired... haha...
Walking, walking and walking... huhu... 
We walked back to the initial starting point and walked for another 1 and a half hour to reach our destination! huhuhu... >.<  
*Everyone was really tired already...after detouring to the wrong destination...*

Still managed to smile for the camera though~ =)

This is the sandy trail to Telok Pandan Kecil
The wooden little bridge~
It was really HOT! Luckily I brought an umbrella~ =P

After 1 and a half hour, we had finally reached the peak of Telok Pandan Kecil~
The scenery from the peak was simply BREATHTAKING!!! =)

The breathtaking scenery~ =)

Posing at the peak~ =)

After enjoying the scenery at the peak, we went down to the beach! =)
The beach was AWESOME~ hehe...

The beautiful beach~
Posing happily at the beach~ =)

Lyng, Anthony, Eric, Phoebe and Winnie had checked in at Telok Pandan Kecil beach~
My boyfriend loves me~ teee heee...=)
We returned back to Kampung Bako at 3pm~ The boat arrived early and was waiting for us already~
* The boatman was really punctual! =) *

On the way back, we saw a lot exotic limestones~ Here are some of them~ =)

Arrived at Kampung Bako~
The whole trip only cost RM29.20!
Not too bad for a jungle trekking experience + exotic scenery + beautiful sandy beach~ hehe...
Do visit Bako National Park if you happen to go Kuching~
It would be terrific for nature-lovers!!!
It's a perfect spot to appreciate God's creation~~~

So, that's all folks~ The END of Bako National Park trip~ exhausted and yet satisfied... =)

P/S: Stay tuned for MORE KUCHING DELICACIES!!! teee heee~ =)
