The Plan


The initial plan was to head for the Robinson Waterfall for some rest and relaxation after the morning's trek to Mount Brinchang. The beginning of trail 9 that lead to the waterfall began at the side of a road that lay nearby the MARDI center (conducts research in agriculture, food and agro-based industries), just after turning right at a T-junction before one reaches the hospital.
