In fact, being a state at the northern border of Malaysia with Sg Golok stretching in between Malaysia and Thailand, our cultures are so enriched and blended in a special way (that not everyone can accept). Moreover, Kelantan dialect is so special, when you speak in Kelantan dialect when non-Kelantaneses are around, they hardly get what you are talking about. But to tell the truth, I am so ashamed that I grade my Kelantan dialect as band 1 or 2 only...not even a pass.haha...
And now, I start to learn about Kelantan. I start to explore it with my friends. I hope it is not too late, by the way.
The Bradley Steps near the Police Station of Kuala Krai, which is used to measure the level of flood, hence warning people about the imminent floods...
After going down from the Bradley Steps, what you can see is the Kelantan River, and the floating houses on Kelantan River. Hm, the water looks like teh tarik right...
The Bradley Steps also serve as a platform/small jetty to connect the UK--Ulu Kelantan to Kuala Krai main town. Passangers are seen moving from the boat to the steps.
Next, we headed to Dabong, which is approximately 80km from Kuala Krai main town.
4 lassies in front of the cave.
The limestone mount. We didn't go inside the caves, as we don't have a tour guide.
This is the gem of Kelantan...The Air Terjun Jelawang(Jelawang Waterfall), falls from a height of 303m, is said to be the highest waterfall in South-East-Asia. From far, we could see the staggering stream of water gushing down from Stong Mountain. Despite April and May are the hottest months, water is still flowing down. We thought the water will dry up, none of us actually bring clothes for changing, so we missed the chance to bath in the water.
Jelawang Waterfall is not as polluted as Lata Rek Waterfall yet, the water is very clear and cool.
Jelawang Waterfall is located at Mount Stong National Park. Mount Stong stands 1,433m tall. You need to hire tour guide to bring you up to the top. It takes around ~3 hours to get to the top. And you need to spend one night on top of the mountain. The price is RM110 per pax(price includes a tour guide, an overnight stay in a chalet at the top).

Another reminder, they play at their own risk...
A notice saying that so far 9 people were drowned in the waterfall. Horrifying number. The water can be as deep as 5m. Play at your own risk. But the cool water is so so tempting...
