Hear From Others
I was very surprised when I entered into the area. It was so safe. The road is tarred! The entrance fee is RM1 per person. I find it so hard to believe this is what you call a Recreational Forest..
That ‘Heart’ Traveller
When we reach, we were amazed with the scenery. It was cooler and the air are more fresher. You can hear the water stream rumblings on the river. The place we have our picnic is a 8 hectare area which we can choose where to set our picnic place.
