The most memorable experience during my short visit there was hiking up the hill at Koh Wau Talab. Hardly as high as any hills or mountain that I had scaled, it offers quite a great challenge to many a hiker with its difficult and unrelenting terrain. Rarely you will noticed any straight path as it is mostly uprooted trees and branches lining up the trail. What more many people including myself was wearing sandals as we were oblivious to the challenges of the trail. The most challenging part was the stretch nearing the summit as it was lined with sharp boulders similar to the pinnacles of Mt Mulu. If you haven't noticed, there is a rope just right beside where I'm standing in the photo. And there is even a warning sign and an emergency number just in case if you decide to attempt this last bit.
As you reached the top, all the aprehension of scaling the pinnacles will soon dissapear as you gawk in awe of the panorama that beholds you. You would think that you had just entered a fantasy world as it took a while for me to absorb it all. If not for the scorching hot sun and not to keep entire passengers of the tour boat waiting, I would have spent more time there. But I'm glad I did this impromptu hike, as it was really rewarding.
All in all, it took slightly more than an hour up and down the hill.
