The Top Things to Do Near Lembing Riverview Resort
Malaysia is blessed with abundant rainforests all throughout the country, and with it comes gorgeous waterfalls. On my recent visit to the old mining town of Sungai Lembing on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia; I decided to join a local tour that promised to bring me to one of the most magnificent waterfalls in the country. The unique feature of this waterfall is that from 9-10am every morning, the sun hits the falling water at the base of the falls and creates a beautiful rainbow. People come from all over the country to make the one and a half-hour journey to get to the falls, just to see this beauty of nature.
From the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, the journey to Kuantan, the capital city of the Pahang state, takes about 3 hours along the East Coast Highway. From Kuantan, it is another 45 minutes drive to reach to the small mining town of Sungai Lembing, the base to get to the Rainbow Waterfall.
Visitors who intend to visit the falls usually stay the night before, as the guided tour to the falls begins at 6am in the morning. If you prefer, you can also make the trip to the falls yourself; but due to the uneven roads and paths through the jungle, you will need a 4X4 off road vehicle and perfect timing to see the rainbow. So I say, better leave it to the local experts, and just go along for the ride. Most resorts in town can help you get bookings done the day before. It costs RM50 (US$13) per person, inclusive of the RM10 forest reserve fee.
Sungai Lembing Museum
The Sungai Lembing Museum serves to disseminate information as well as display evidence of the celebrated history of tin mining in Sg Lembing, in line with its one-time status as the world’s largest subterranean mine, as well as the richest town and the major producer of tin ore in the state of Pahang, Malaysia. The Museum was officially opened on 23 April 2005.
The museum building, which is two floors high, is located on top of a hill. It was formerly the residence of managers of tin mining companies in Sungai Lembing, from the Pahang Corporation Limited (1887-1906) through to the glorious heyday of the Pahang Consolidated Company Limited (PCCL), from the years 1906-1986. The building, designed in the vernacular-colonial style, is known as European Bungalow 1 (or EB1 for short) to differentiate it from the residence of other senior British officers.
Permanent collections: Sungai Lembing Museum showcases a collection of the original mining equipment used for subterranean tin mining in Sungai Lembing. Amongst the interesting pieces of this collection are the wooden moulds used for making spare parts for the machines that operated in the factories. There is also a kiew wheel and a winch, which are part of the equipment used to raise or lower mining workers, goods, wood, or iron in the tunnel, as well as for hauling the ore. The mini mox vehicle used to transport the General Manager to the mine or factory is also on display.
