Caving in Gua Tempurung

I woke up early yesterday to do some spelunking in Gua Tempurung. Gua Tempurung is the largest limestone cave in Peninsular Malaysia. To reach there, I have to take the North-South Expressway and exit at the Gopeng exit in Perak. I wondered why I did not visit such a beautiful cave when I was studying nearby 8-9 years ago. The cave is manage by a private company...

There goes my hope for Hawaii like...

One month backpacking in India – Part 3

A traveler once told me, it would take 2 lifetimes to finish visiting India. Since I only have 1 month, I decided to take full advantage of the limited time I had by going on a grand tour of India. The journey was so grand that it took me from the south to the north, from the baking desert plain of Rajasthan to the freezing snow capped mountain of the Himalayan, from...

One month backpacking in India – Part 2

Rupees Rupees Rupees! If you think you cannot afford to backpack for one whole month in India, then I have good news for you; backpacking in India is damn cheap.

The grand total is merely INR 32,946 or...
