To those who drive:
1. If u are taking metrobus from mutiara, be careful as there are two Templer Parks. We are not going to the national service camp (i.e the fake Templer), so you should stop at the bus stop right opposite to the real Templer park. It's easy to recognize it, when you see Shell petrol station, prepare to press the bell!!!
2. If you are driving from mutiara, Templer Park is opposite your way. As for safety reason, you are advisable to follow the path of the ''map'' above. It's not a long way to Tesco where you can make a legal u-turn and it's much safer. Don't attempt to do a u-turn before Tesco, it's too dangerous even for a Ferrari......
3. For some reasons, they are collecting entrance fee nowadays. To save my money, I'll wait at a bus stop outside and anyone reach there just wake me up. I'll tell you where to find a nice place. You won't want your car with some monkeys on it.
oh, the entrance fees are:
RM1 each person, RM2 for each car and RM3 if you look like a foreigner......
:::::::::Destination survey report::::::::::
I went to Templer Park this morning and had a good geographical insight as well as experience.
The park has 7 levels from ground to the top. The waterfalls are situated at 5,6 and 7. It took 15 minutes for me to reach level 5 and another 15 minutes to level 7. The place suitable for having picnic is at level 5. Level 5 is a hot spot so many people are going there. We have to arrive there as earlier as possible to be the boss there!!!
Be sure to arrive there in time!!
There are some important things to remember.
It is advisable to bring bagpacks instead of handbags or other fancy bags. During the hiking, leave at least one of your hands empty so that you can grab something if something happens.
If you bring fruits, store them in a container or in non-transparent plastic bags. I don't know how the monkeys will react when they see your fruits. Besides that, no bananas! All monkeys have noses and no help provided when a gorilla suddenly appear in front of you.
