Tana Rata is a much bigger town than i expected and its at a pretty high altitude hence the cold which i guess i never expected for tropical Malaysia. My first evening consisted of eating a shed load of Indian food which was great and checked out the jungle bar back at the hostel
Up the following day and we headed off on a hike to a waterfall which was really nice but on the way back it pissed down with rain and i got drenched. I was like a drowned rat by the time i got back to the hostel... but with the weather so cold and damp its impossible to dry anything at all...not good. Some more trekkin was in store the next day and we took on a slightly longer trek stopping at a look out tower to take in some great views over the town and mountains... It is rainy season at the moment so it pissed rain again but you just enjoy it and get on with it. We met alot of people in the hostel and a few of us went out on our last nite for Indian food and hit the jungle bar back at the hostel which is cool. They light a bonfire there every nite so about 20 of us were sat about this drinkin beers and swapping traveling stories so all good. Got to bed about 3...only problem was in the room next door was some couple with a baby who spent the entire nite screaming and crying...so fuck all sleep for me..not impressed and i dont think my suggestion of shutting him up with a canvas bag and a brick would have went down to well with the parents.
My last day i packed up my bag..half of my clothes still wet and damp and got my bus ticket for another 8 hour poxy journey ahead to Taman Negara national park.
