One day on the island of Langkawi we grabbed our daypacks and hiked to the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls. They were billed as the island's most wonderful natural attraction. The name of the falls actually means "Seven Wells Waterfalls" and refers to a series of seven connected natural pools that are fed by seven seperate waterfalls. Now, obviously, the waterflow very much depends on the amount of rain that comes down on any given day. We were there during the dry season (means it was super hot) although we got our fair share of daily rain that usually lasted an hour or so. Havings seen a thing or two, the waterfalls were a bit of a disappointment. Nevertheless, we liked the hike through this lush, tropical land. On our way we got to see large families of macaques playing and hanging around the trees. They were watching us curiously and we did the same in return. Better than a zoo!
