    Steep Terrain in Endau Rompin

    by bpacker Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Unless you've got a keen desire to meet your maker soon, go to Endau Rompin in a 4x4 or a Jeep. Yes, there are no proper roads over there and the terrain can get pretty muddy and dangerous once it rains. Even though I went in a Jeep, it nearly overturned in the rain-soaked, steep terrain. Hell yes, it did in a futile attempt to climb a hill. The 4x4 slid crazily backwards and spun for a while before control was regained. I could have sworn my life flashed before me so when the driver suggested that we get out, I bolted like speedy gonzales and took a picture like any shameless VTer. You can see a dazed looking hubby standing by the side and another team mate at the top of the hill. The 4x4 got to the top eventually, but not before all the guys gave it a push and got on the side for more traction...phew. We got back in one piece but what an adventure!

    Where to find a Jeep
    Contact Johor Parks, they'll bring you into the park via a Jeep. If not contact a travel agent. There's at 4 agents in the website below.

    Do not Eat This

    by bpacker Updated May 10, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Over at Endau Rompin, you'll see lots of pretty mushrooms, toadstools and pretty fungi like this. Resist the temptation to treat it as a cheap psychoactive drug and pop one in your mouth. You might end up dead instead of getting high. And if you think that's funny, Junior might not think so. Watch over your child and see if he pops any of these yummy looking things into his mouth. Endau Rompin is miles away from the nearest hospital so take note.

    Not to be eaten!

    Leeches Unlimted

    by bpacker Updated May 9, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's a known fact that when the skies starts to pour in Endau Rompin National Park, a gazillion leeches will come to find warm-bloodeds for free Bloody Marys. Hell yes, these bloody little suckers will latch itself unto you and you won't notice that you've been leeched till you remove your sock to find ten contented creatures on your toe. And if you pull the creatures off , it'll only worsen the situation as your blood will ooze like a Texan oil well. Better to let the little sucker finish its bloody cocktail and give you a coagulant before it drops off by itself. If not, drip medicated oil * on it . It works like a charm. Much better than salt or a lighter. Why flambe yourself and the worm?

    *Axe Oil, a medicated oil found in Singapore, works the best! Tested and proven by bpacker, the host to at least ten leeches.

    Afternote: It was much later that I found out that the leech shown in this picture over here is a tiger leech. It's characterised by its more painful bite and the yellow stripe running down the length of its body.
