Ang Kor Wat route is suitable for those who're up for a challenge. Some parts are quite steep and slippery (probably due to rain the day before) so make sure you wear shoes with a good grip.
Headed and guided by our Santai Trail King KJoe, I could say he knows Kiara extremely well. Having the thoughts that it would crowded and packed, he diverts us with adventures. Pit stop one/two is the view of KL, next is the Kiara Eye @ Bamboo Forest, the first adventure was going down the eye and I learn squatting technique from KJoe . What makes it fun is watching Jaz with his sound effects, sometimes he could be over reacting but we are just happy to have him around. Next is the Ang Kor Wat Tree where we managed to capture few group and individual shots with wild mushrooms too. Along the way, bumped into Iris at the cross road, then we reached the Yellow Stone or I called it the rock, instead of taking photo with the huge rock (down), I went up and did the meditating pose. Unexpectedly after negotiating with KJoe, he decided to bring us to the waterfall as bonus and eventually walked down the quite and serene stream. Overall, I'm truly happy with the so called santai trail; I have the chance to get to know KJoe , meet Jason and 3 other new friends & I posed like nobody business.
What a great experience to join the Yolopacers growing family this morning on a lovely weather with a nice scenic guided trail hike tour!
Fun and friendly feeling yet with breathtaking challenging uphill climb and elevation, to add-on with unexpected directional change by trail sifu KJoe Wong giving surprise to go down the low bamboo forest, instantly felt like a newborn foetus just came to life! Splendid! Thank you sifus Li Leen and Kent Lee for taking care of newbie like me at the back and boss Lily for making this happen. Definitely an all-star rating for this highly recommended fun-filled exploration! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
