The highlight of the entire trip was on the second day, where we were to conquer Gunung Arong, a 300m hill.
Unfortunately, nobody can place an identity on it. Update: Schoutenia accrescens
After seeing a few gigantic Shorea trees in front of us, Shawn Lum decided to estimate the age of the trees by measuring their diamater. He told us that this tree is at least 300 years old!
There were a few mangrove plants at the estuary, mainly making out of Lumnitzera littorea with flaming red flowers.
These mangrove rattans, probably Calamus erinaceus looked amazing at a far view though I wouldn’t relish bashing through them!
Our last plant before boarding the bus was this figging Ficus superba!
All in all, a great learning trip with the right company and it was worth every penny paid.
