A Refreshing Time At Saok Waterfall

After leaving Herbal Island behind us, we headed for Saok Waterfall in our speedboat.



There are many waterfalls in Tasik Kenyir. But we chose Saok Waterfall as it was included in the Herbal Island package which cost RM40 per person.



After traveling for about 5 minutes, we reached our destination.



A towering signboard at the top of the stairs welcomed us to Saok Waterfall.



Once we reached the top of the stairs, I came across this wooden platform.



As the others went ahead to the waterfall, I spent some time here myself admiring the beautiful scenery.



I took a few shots here.



Standing here, I felt completely calm and relaxed.



In fact, I could sit here with a good book all day long. Haha!!



To reach the waterfall, I had to climb up this flight of stairs!



Upon reaching the top, a wooden signboard showed me the direction to the waterfall.



Soon, the sound of waterfall could be heard! And then I caught some glimpses of the waterfall in between the trees!



Oh! I could feel the fresh air already!



The waterfall was right in front of me now. I saw my friend and waved to him.



Somehow the sound of the waterfall cascading down from the top was very soothing to the ears. And I felt very refreshed, possibly due to the negative ions formed by the waterfall.



And of course I would not miss dipping my legs into the waters! It was so cooling and refreshing! Both me and my friend could just sit there the whole day if we wanted!



I was told that during heavy rainy season, this waterfall is off limits to visitors as the strong current can be dangerous.



Soon, it was time to go back. The boat was there waiting for us. As usual, I was the last to arrive.



I felt a little sad leaving Saok Waterfall. But that's all right cos I was looking forward to our massage session next!

    Ok, that's irrelevant, I know.

    I like the pics of the Waterfall and water. No oil contamination like in the US. =p

  29. RoseBelle said...

    I can imagine the tranquility of this place. Love the lush greens and water. I'd say it's probably one of the best places I've read thus far about all your trips. I would have recorded the sound of the waterfall...good for night time soothing music.

    June 7, 2010 at 11:59 AM
  30. HappySurfer said...

    Yeah, how much time did you spend there? No dipping in besides just wetting your feet? I like shots #6 and 8.

    June 7, 2010 at 2:21 PM
  31. [SK] said...

    yeah, it looks like a very nice waterfall.. you didn't have a dip in the waterfall??

    June 7, 2010 at 3:33 PM
  32. Kelvin said...

    Sounds of waterfalls is relaxing in a way :)

    June 7, 2010 at 3:33 PM
  33. [SK] said...

    let me think.. i've only been to a waterfall like not more than 3 times, hahaha!! and i guess there's only once that i dip into a waterfall..

    June 7, 2010 at 3:34 PM
  34. [SK] said...

    so where does the water comes from?? and is the waterfall linked to Lake Kenyir??

    June 7, 2010 at 3:34 PM
  35. [SK] said...

    hehehe, this time we see your hairy pair of legs again, so "Lake Kenyir posts"~~ :D

    June 7, 2010 at 3:35 PM
  36. [SK] said...

    weather's so hot, i really feel like lying on the rocks and let the cool water run onto me.. :)

    June 7, 2010 at 4:00 PM
  37. [SK] said...

    or else just lying somewhere dry and listen to the relaxing sound of the water, i supposed the surrounding air is also as cooling..

    June 7, 2010 at 4:01 PM
  38. [SK] said...

    thinking about that, i feel sleepy already, hahahaha :D

  40. Bananazஇ said...

    You are fresh not due to the possibility of negative ions but its becoz of the -ve ions haha. That's why you see those sifu in swordsman movies love to meditate by the waterfall to 'capture' -ve ions and meditate well haha (so much of movies kakaka)..

    June 7, 2010 at 5:40 PM
  41. Bananazஇ said...

    Soak Waterfall – the name is so charming that one would think of getting wet in the waterfall. But the reality is different from our guessing. The waterfall is soaking the land on both its side. So the name is rightly justified. Thanks for posting.

    You can use tap water links london but if you live in an area with links london jewellery really hard water, then you may use distilled links of london sale or bottled water.Before we go into the links of london silver how-tos, you need to gather some items first such discount links of london as an ironing board, an iron and a water links of london watch charm bottle that has water in itTo start ironing a shirt links of london friendship bracelets we will be starting with the front of the shirt. Slip the shirt onto the board links of london sweetie bracelet so that the left hand side of the shirt is facing up on the board and the rest of the discount links of london chains shirt is hanging off the back of the board. Imagine as though the ironing board is acting as though links of london pendants it is putting the shirt on by entering the left side of the shirt first.
