Batu caves on route to Cameron Highlands

Left KL for the Cameron Highlands our first stop was the presidents palace,next up the Batu Caves ,here there are 272 steps founded in 1879 the limestone hills here the oldest in the world.
birds of note here tree sparrows,mynahs ,crows and cattle egrets,the impressive statue of
Lord Murughan.
After an hour here we pushed on and had lunch in Tapah town with spiderhunters and palm swifts
Lunch was Nasi Goreng,it was raining at 1345hrs and we stopped briefly to view basket weaving.
On route we stopped at Lata Iskanda I thought the waterfalls would produce some birds but no.
Crossing in to Pahang state birds picked up a bit Magpie robins ,swallows and needletails.
Arrived Cameron Islands Hotel checked in had a spot of tea and cakes before a walk parallel
with the golf course produced common Sandpiper ,Grey Wagtail and more Magpie Robins.
Our evening meal was the traditional Steamboat,a pot split in two halves boiling water noodles with
meat fish and vegetables,this memorable meal served by impeccable staff was a delight.We retired to the bar had a frame of snooker followed by coffee.
