Selai - According to the Orang Hulu, long, long ago, Sungai Selai used to be a torrential river flowing down from Gunung Besar.   One day,  a beautiful celestial princess called Puteri Dayang Tuarang decided to visit the place. Her visit changed every thing. She emanated so much heat during her visit that the river was reduced to a mere trickle,  the size of a strip of rattan, or ‘sehelai rotan’ in Malay. Since then,  the river was called Selai. 

Even till this day, during periods of heavy rain, the Orang Asli of Selai propitiate the princess in a special ceremony, so that she may provide some respite from the weather.

During the course of Endau-Rompin Expedition, a group of scientist took off from Gunung Besar heading for the head waters of Sungai Endau to go down to Kuala Jasin.  The party followed the wrong stream and ended up at Sungai Selai Along the way, they found a new species of flowering herb, Didissandra.

Today, it is the site of the Selai Base Camp - now known as Lubok Tapah Base Camp.

Endau Rompin is the newest found jungle retreat in the country. Itself being more than 100 million years old where the exotic flora and fauna found nowhere else in the world. Scientific expeditions and researches are still visiting the parks regularly.

Accommodation is very basic - non air condition huts with mattresses, pillows and sleeping bags. There are common toilets and bathrooms - 4 bathrooms and 4 toilets for the ladies and 4 bathrooms and 4 toilets for the gentlemen. Effort is now in place to built better accommodation with fan rooms and with attached bathroom. and these should be ready by the end of 2006. The experience and thrills one gets here in Selai is unforgettable and compensate for the little discomfort of the accommodation.

Team Building is the latest addition to the list of programs that we offer in the park. It has a special appeal as the only location that a comprehensive adventure team building program can be organised. Activities that can be included are jungle trekking, jungle survival, paintball wargames, abseiling, flying fox, obstacles course, night trekking (plus solo walk), treasure hunt, corporate games, night safari, rubber tube rafting etc.

LOCATION AND AREA MAPS  OF ENDAU ROMPIN

As far removed from all the trappings of modern civilization as anyone would possibly want to be. No air-conditioning here, no television. As for cell phones, don’t bother. They don’t work here. And we make no apologies for it. For the truth is, after a while, you won’t miss it either. Because there is something about a 260 million-year-old lowland tropical rainforest that really engages your senses.
 
Selai is the western gateway to Johor’s famed Endau-Rompin Johor National Park. (It actually encompasses two-thirds of the park’s 48,500ha area). An Orang Asli legend has it that there was once a celestial princess who possessed the power of innate body heal. When she descended upon Earth, the scorching heat that emanated from her body led to a drought. This caused the mighty river that flowed from Gunung Besar to be reduced to a mere trickle - the size of a strip of rattan - or ‘sehelai rotan’. Hence forever after, the river was called Selai, and the park that was later created there took this name.
 
As for the legend, anyone visiting Selai today will have no doubt that it is all in the distant past. For this is a blessed place. Hiking across Selai entails scenic river crossings via rope bridges, and hopping along the boulders that dot the Selai River. No matter how long you trek, the exhilarating sound of water rushing over rocks is never far away. Nature’s adornment here comes in the form of a series of photogenic waterfalls. No less than 20 are to be found around the park. each one seemingly prettier than the one before. The most spectacular of these is the Takah Tujuh, which is spread over an elevation of seven tiers! It has such an atmospheric quality that the Orang Asli say spirits dwell in its upper reaches.
 
The terrain here is rugged. the facilities minimal, which makes the whole experience as authentic as it can get. Selai lies in the core area of Endau-Rompin, at the foothill of Gunung Tiong.
 
The vegetation here has been spared the swing of an axe for centuries, and even scientists have yet to fully unravel its secrets, Hornbills flying across the river during the fruiting season make for a delightful sight. Fish feeding time at the jetty can be quite awesome too, as the placid water is suddenly churned up by schools of more than 20 species of fish, all competing for a bite. Apart from trekking and communing with Nature, try your hand at a ‘temiang’ or blowpipe, or at setting animal traps Orang Asli-style. Night falls swiftly in the forest.

 

A little sidetrack..

Stories recently abound of this Malaysian Bigfoot especially in the Johor part of the Endau-Rompin State Park. In fact the various Bigfoot sightings from way back in the 1980s and until very recently in 2006 have transformed the mythical hairy creature into a real denizen of the forest.

They are said to be around 3 to 4 meters tall and a recent photograph and taking of a left foot model of this Malaysian Bigfoot’s footprint made through gypsum, measures the foot size as 45.5 centimeters long and 36 centimeters wide.

One sighting in November 2005, reported that three creatures, two of which were at least 3 meters tall, were seen fishing in the river, and they were plucking the fishes with their bare hands!

Previous expeditions to track these denizens of the forest had been unsuccessful because they know the jungle better than we humans.And the Johore state Government had recently set up a committee to investigate and later to track them in the jungles to confirm their existence.

The most widely accepted theory is that this Malaysian Bigfoot is a descendant of the giant primate species, Gigantopithecus Blackai. Remains of this animal, found in Vietnam and China, date back between 100,000 and two million years ago.

There were similar sightings reported in wilderness areas around the world, including the so-called Bigfoot in North America, the Yeti in Tibet and the Yowie in Australia.

 

SIDENOTE

HELP CONSERVE THE SUMATRAN RHINOCEROS

The Sumatran rhinoceros is probably the most endangered of the five rhino species found worldwide. It is believed that fewer than 300 of them are left currently in the world.

Therefore it is imperative that we protect the Sumatran rhinos’ habitat especially from poachers. Because sadly, their numbers are depleting due to indiscriminate poaching and hunting for their horns which are supposed to be aphrodisiacs according to old Asian beliefs. This wide-spread mistaken belief must be eradicated so that these rhinos will still be around for future generations.

WWF-Malaysia has in February 2006 initiated and undertaken a five-year project called Rhino Rescue, with one of the objectives being to raise awareness of the urgent need to protect and conserve the Sumatran Rhinoceros through outreach to local communities as well as increasing efforts in understanding its ecological, biological and spatial needs. This project will be carried out in the Belum Forest Complex in the Malaysian state of Perak.

So do help to protect these rhinos where we can, and donate to efforts towards this end.
