Berpicnic di Lubuk Manggis, Hulu Langat

To spice things up a little bit (excuse the pun), I'm gonna do some posting on places of interests, starting from my own 'backyard', so to speak.  Memang banyak tempat-tempat menarik kat kampung saya ni.

So, the first attraction to be honored will be Lubuk Manggis.  But you won't find any manggis (mangosteen) here...  (=

It's located about (about ya.. tak sure brapa km ni sebenarnya) 40km from KL.  It may not be as famous as its 'sister', the Sungai Congkak, but it does have its own charm.





   There are quite a few 'chalets' along the river.
 Shallow and calm water.
Suitable for bathing especially for the kids.

 A bit choppy here because of the boulders in the river.

  My son and his friends enjoying the cold water.
Memang sejuk... brrrr.....

 Plenty of rocks and boulders here.


 Orang berpicnic on both sides of the river.

 

My son kesejukan after a dip in the water.

 Durians, anyone?


 The kids enjoying their durians. Yum!

 'Nyonya titun'

Simple sandwich for snacks!

Lubuk Manggis is not as busy and crowded as
 Sungai Congkak and Sungai Gabai.
So, it's more relaxing to swim and picnic here.


p/s : thanking my friend, MAI, for her suggestions... :))

Personally, loved Lubuk Manggis more than Sg Congkak.

Lagi lapang dan lebih nampak aman damai.

Oh, terima kasih dtg ke Warlord's Armoury ya :)
