Photoblog: Sungai Pelepah…a slice of nature’s gift

A group comprising 13 adults and 7 children went on a 6-hour jungle trek along Sungai Pelepah and its waterfalls in Kota Tinggi, here, recently.

Sungai Pelepah is situated  some 65km from Johor Bahru.

The jungle trek expedition was organized by the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), Johor branch to encourage more people to get closer with nature.
