The ride into the waterfall is an uphill ride with few challenging trails. It’s challenging but not extremely-difficult. Enough to keep you on your feet and feel good about yourself although you never do any crazy things like bungee jumping or diving or something like that.
Me…enjoying the ride…
Kemensah Waterfall is my first photography outing that require me to trek a bit before reaching it. And that time i’ll never guess that later it would be the most easiest one compared to other remote/high places that i went for my hobby.
