Michael anak Kenyalang Profile

Travel has always been my passion, and fortunately, became my job. It appears that most of the Heritage Sites are the major tourist spots in a country, so I started counting in 2012 when I went on my first Europe Grand Tour.

Michael anak Kenyalang Malaysia - 27-Mar-19

Yazd

I visited in December 2017 from Shiraz, taking the local bus at 2pm and arrived around 9pm.

I stayed at a local caravanserai not far from the Jame Mosque. So the first thing to do in the morning after the warm chai was to visit the Jame Mosque. It's situated in the city center with two tall Shia minarets, the tallest in Iran at 45 meters. Other than that the mosque itself was not that impressive, probable due to the worn out pale colour of the mosaic and ceilings. My main interest in that building was to look for the Zarch Payab (The Persian Qanat WHS) that took me a while to locate it. The was a signpost next to the staircase leading all the way down to the bottom with dimming light. But I was a bit disappointed when I reached the bottom where the big well was situated, as the water was not flowing and it looked it hadn't been used for a long time

Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T)

Gombak Selangor Quartz Ridge (T)

I visited in a very hot day on March 2019. I actually stay not far from the quartz ridge (around 6 km) where I get to see it everyday from my condominium balcony. But I never have time, and most importantly, friend with the same interest to discover this interesting geological formation. So only recently I managed to tick off this tentative list. 

There are two entry points to start off depends on you fitness

Seruwila to Sri Pada (Sacred Foot Print Shrine), Ancient pilgrim route along the Mahaweli river in Sri Lanka (T)

Michael anak Kenyalang Malaysia - 18-Feb-19

I visited in August 2017. I've read quite a lot of reviews saying that it's raining season, mating season for animals and off season where the temple of footprint is closed. But I decided to go simply because the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary is a part of WHS and set it as a goal to reach the top.

We started off late at 4am expecting not to see the sunrise because we saw the peak was surrounded by cloud the day before and knew that there won't be any sunrise. We also started light only with our rain jackets, a bottle of of water that we barely drink due to the rain, and our smartphone as torchlight as there's no light on the road.

Lenggong Valley

Michael anak Kenyalang Malaysia - 18-Jan-19

Lenggong Valley

Visited the multiple sites in January 2019. I was invited by the Lenggong Museum authority to join an expedition on training the local guides. We started from the archaeological museum where the Kota Tampan site is situated. The museum is now reopened after two years of renovation with first floor containing artefacts and the famous Perak Man skeleton. The second floor is more to general information and two suevites with stone axes from Bukit Bunuh, evidence to proof that Lenggong was occupied as early as 1.83 million years ago, the earliest outside Africa. The Kota Tampan site behind the museum was a bit disappointing as the roof that covered the site was being torn down by the monkeys and the site got flooded after the rain.

Joya de Ceren

Michael anak Kenyalang Malaysia - 11-Dec-18

Joya de Ceren

I visited this WHS in September 2016 during my Latin Grand Tour which last for 7 months. This is a very interesting WHS as most of the WHS in Latin America are related to Aztec, Mayan, Inca or Spaniards glory history, and Joya de Ceren is more to the daily life of the Pre-Columbian Mayan 1400 years ago. The ashes from the nearby Loma Caldera volcano eruption covered and preserved the site in time capsule, just like Leon Viejo and Pompeii.  

I recommend to visit the museum first before entering the archaeological site so that one will have a better understanding of what's in the archaeological zone
