Cheow Lan Lake – Day 2 3/7/15

We were up bright and early this morning for our morning safari! The mist over the lake made the whole place seem serene and ethereal. Unfortunately, we did not spot any animals.

Our other activity for the day was a hike through the park. The jungle was beautiful and the hike was great exercise! We also learned about a few of the animals that make the park their home.

The rest of today has been dedicated to relaxing and enjoying the beautiful lake!

  1. We past 3 kilometers on these mountains in the jungle! That was a good exercise! We also learned lots of amazing animals!

  2. The hike and boat ride were great. The lake is exquisite as are the surrounding views. It is definitely one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. The reflection of the limestone cliffs against the water looks like a surrealist painting. Although we did not see many exciting animals on our safaris or on the hike, we saw hoof prints and got to learn a bit about the animals who left them. It was also a great experience to be disconnected from the outside world for two days. I will admit that I had separation anxiety, but it was refreshing to take a break from cell phones and constant connection. The bungalows were rustic and tight but we spent such a small amount of time in them it did not matter. I would absolutely come visit Cheow Lan lake again!

  3. The hike was intense. I grew up in upstate New York and have done a lot of hiking in the Catskills, but I have never done a hike quite so steep for quite so long. From far away, a lot of the mountains here just look like any regular mountain, but hiking reveals a completely different environment than the ones you would experience hiking elsewhere. The trees and other vegetation are exotic and unidentifiable to those of us who come from the deciduous regions of North America.

  4. Staying on the lake was an amazing experience for me. Waking up every morning and looking at the limestone mountains with a thick fog over it was a beautiful sight to wake up to. The water was warm and very relaxing to swim in after a long day of hiking or going on a long safari. The safaris were interesting we saw a rare type of Bison. There are only around 2,000 of these Bison left in the park so I was happy to see more then one let alone five.
