Sungai Chiling - Before Ramadan

Two days before Ramadan, I went to Sg Chiling with a friend and we planned to explore the second and third level waterfalls.   All the while when I went there, we never explored the other levels.  I know that people can go up to the other levels as I saw them up at the second level at one time.  At the last crossing, we didn't cross, instead we hiked up following established trek until we reached the second level.  It was very high and I guessed that the water was deep too.  I don't think people can swim here unless Via Ferrata team of Mount Kinabalu do something about it!  Standing at the edge made feel aerophobic!
After a few snaps on the camera, we went up further to the third level.  Wow, it's just as beautiful. It was raining when we reached here and we took refuge under the trees and at higher ground too.  I have read and seen video of 'ibu air' and I didn't want to take the risk. 
There was another level, a smaller one but it was inaccessible.  We decided to take a dip once the rain stopped.  The water didn't look clear enough that day as the water level was very low.  Nevertheless, it didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves far from people at level 1. 
We left Sg Chiling at about 1pm and on the way back we treated ourselves to a 'durian feast' at Kg. Rasa.  We paid RM7.50 each for the feast of 101 and 'udang merah'.  It was a steal as compared to the price in KL.  We ended the day with the expensive banana leaf rice at Raju's.  Salam Ramadan to all!
