Camping at Hutan Lipur Sg Sendat, Ulu Yam, Selangor 24 March 2012

We drove along the long winding old trunk road of Jalan Sg Tua to Ulu Yam. At the end of the road, we came to a T-junction where a left turn took us to Hutan Lipur Sg. Sendat at the end of it.  

The road to Hutan Lipur Sg. Sendat.

We came to a wide clearing at the end of the road, where we parked and camped. There is no toilet or water facilities available. It was pitch-black at night and the starry night sky was beautiful. The sound of gushing river was loud and clear.

At the site where we camped, there is a signage leading to Eagle Nest Campsite ,an outbound adventure Eco resort. 

I can see gravel road path further ahead from where we stopped. 

It showered in the midst of setting up tent, till evening. We had to stay under the flysheet-shelter and cooked under rainy weather. It seemed natural to the children and I heard no complain.  

 Simple dinner. 

Washing hand with rain water dripping from the flysheet and collecting it for usage.

Collection of wood and dried leaves for fire were soaking wet.

Sg Sendat, by far the cleanest among the rivers we have camped.

Mandi sungai. (bathing in the river). The water was too cold for me.

The sky was remarkably clear on the Sunday morning.
