Rainforest Waterfalls, Ulu Yam

We hike through the rainforest. The destination is to get to a dam at the other end.

Our expedition starts at the top of the hill over a suspension bridge.

The bridge is about 60-feet above the rushing water of the stream below.

I need to find my way through all these rocks...

... which are huge and slippery due to the algae growth on the surface.

Squeezing myself through the two rocks.

Now we need to get across this mountain stream to access further in.

Cheche is surveying the fast-flowing mountain stream.

That's the green light from cheche. Coast is clear, my turn to go into the water.

Brrr... the water is freaking cold.

Better watch out for snakes lurking around in the water.

Whoa... the strong current is sweeping me away.

A little bit more to reach the bank... *paddling*

Woohoo!... I made it.

Checking out the forest trail for any wild animals.

Look! We arrive at a waterfall.

Boy, now we have to swim across to continue the journey.

Easy does it...

... *paddle! paddle!*

Yes, I made it across.

There's still danger ahead... we have to cross a narrow ledge across the fall.

Man, one wrong step and I'll be history.

Planning my move across.

Treading carefully on the ledge.

Two more steps and I'm outta here.

Whoa! This is slippery... I don't want to fall into the fast-flowing stream.

I see an opening up ahead of the stream.

Finally we reach the dam at the river mouth... after the laborious trekking through the rainforest.

I can't believe you went over that bridge! You are some sort of super dog. Then all that exploring in the dangerous river. A regular Indiana Jones!

Slobbers,

Uhm, Hero, that's just WAY too much water for a pei. Shudder. It's like a huge BATH. Ew. Looks like a great Adventure otherwise!

Wow, that was one heck of an adventure. Are you a National Geographic tour doggy. You should be. I was with you every minute and it made me nervous. You are a hero and very brave. The photos are beautiful.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Hero, I'm with our friend Bolo on this one buddy. That's alot of water for a Pei to be dipping in. I'm already wrinkly enough, I don't need any more.
The adventure was awesom though, oh how I'd love to go somewhere like that, if you ever want to swap places, just let me know, but please warn your humans, I don't do water! Pei laughter!
