Day 2: Around 3pm, our guide told us to leave everything behind on a hill & covered it with garbage bag in case of rain. I just brought my camera & water filter cos the guide said only took 1 hour to go down into valley to see the Julan Fall. However, I forgot to bring my headlamp (so did everyone else) cos his 1 hour is 1 and a half or 2 hours hike to me as my walking pace is different from local folks. Descending to the steep valley is a big challenge to us cos there are too many streams & super muddy trail making it hard to walk properly. The tiger leeches are everywhere. Big population of leeches there due to the wet condition in the steep valley.

Day 2: We slowly ascending from the hilly forest to the foothill of Usun Apau plateau. This time we were hiking in shaded secondary forest in an abandoned logging area but we could not walk fast as the bushes are as tall as a man. Our local friends took so much effort to clear the trail so that we could move to our next camp near to the Julan Fall. At the same time, leeches giving us a "warm welcome"
