Peak 300 - The moment we arrived at Peak.300, we started to prepare for lunch – Yeoh Ping Hui would start the fire, Yeoh Sam Heng would wash the chicken, Choo Min Yee would cut the vegetables and Janet Teoh would oversee and supervise the whole cooking operations while the rest would go for another one and half hour trek down to the waterfall and back on another trail.
|Mr Yeoh and his trekkers had cleaned up the peak.300 and put up some tents and slowly furnished the camp site with the basic cooking facilities.|
|A job very well done for the benefit of all trekkers.|

Trekking down to waterfall and back to Peak 300 - We spent about an hour at Peak.300 which is an open area with not much of a view. Mr. Yeoh then got us to trek downhill westward towards the waterfall on another trail. It took us actually all the way down to the beach main road. From the waterfall area it was all the way up on a very steep slope to Peak.300 and it was only on this one and half hour trail that I sweat a lot.
|This is the most dangerous down hill trek.|

Lunch break - The best moment in this trip was the lunch break with plenty of fruits to eat while waiting for lunch to be served. After lunch, we had to trek another hour back to the car park.

|We also had hot Chinese tea after the hike - looking on is Jeffrey Ong and Ian Goh.|
|All sweaty and looking hungry - we were waiting anxiously for lunch to be served.|
|Ms. Choo Min Yee is busy cooking instant noodle to go with Chic-Kut-Teh while Bro.Kuan collecting small dry branches as fire starter to be used next week.|
|Mr Yeoh is reminding us that lunch is almost ready.|
|Left pot is the Red Onion Chicken soup, middle is soya bean milk and right is the Chic-Kut-Teh.|
|The best Chic-Kut-Teh in Lumut Hill.|
|Yes! The best Chic-Kut-Teh in Lumut and is ready to be served.|
|While waiting for lunch, I was playing with this baby 'kuku' bird that belongs to Ms Choo who took her in and feed her. I believed her parent must have discarded her or been trapped by Indonesian laborers.|
|Lunch is finally served! Yeoh Sam Heng distributing Red Onion Chicken Soup equally into 12 bowls.|
|Yeoh Sam Heng said; "If anyone wants to taste the food, please come for the trek."|
|This is the best soya bean milk (tau-chooi) in Lumut prepared by Janet Teoh the wife of Mr Teoh.|
|This is the Red Onion Chicken soup with Tu-Chung herb.|
|This is the sumptuous 'Chic-Kut-Teh Mee" served at Peak.300 and no where else in Perak.|

And for all the people out there, Peak.300 is still the best bet to keep up our fitness level and to pump up our heart on a very good cardiac exercise.
We shall meet up on 09.02.2014 for the first trekking assault of Gunung Suku (1,797m / 5,896ft) at Cameron Highland. The GPS Coordinate: N4.54271 E101.33395. Usually it takes 3 to 3 1/2 hours ascent and 2 1/2 to 3 hours descent - so see you there, ya!
