The next day we got a river boat 30 mins up the river and hiked a 13km track back down to KT. At first we started out well, we were enthusiastic and kept a good pace. There is a fun river crossing but we were not sure how high the water goes and was worried about destroying camera equipment but I found a fallen tree 20 meters downs that allowed us to shimy across and hack our way through the undergrowth to get back to the track. We started to notice the sheer amount of leeches on the ground as it is quite wet in places. We grew to hate the leeches but unfortunately it was not mutual
There are tigers and elephants in this jungle but you have to trek deep into the jungle for a chance of seeing them. We veg'd the next day, hanging around the river boat cafes and attempting to hand wash our clothes. We are looking forward to some island time on the Perentians after this.
