Long Singut: The descent


This is the drop zone. Here you have to be prepared for the descent, which might take half an hour or so. The path might be slippery and your foot wear have to be proper or bare footed is also an option.


The hill side is steep and slippery. To make the steps, the hill side have to be dug in the shape of ladders. During early morning and rainy days, those steps are slippery, one missed step could land you in the valley below.


For those who are not used to this type of surface, a helpful hand from the local is very much needed.


To get across, we have to pass through this river.......Balleh River. The river is shallow and has rocky bottom and to make the matter worst, the flow is fast and swift. To navigate, the passage, the woman folks use poles.

Save and dry we reached the other side. Our drop zone was the one on the right of the pic.
