While we were still in Long Pasia last July, Nooh, our forest trekking guide and the ‘King of Forest’ was constantly mentioning about a hidden lake someway in the forest. For years he was trying to find it. “How do you know there is a lake?” I asked. People saw the lake from the plane… a long time ago 3 villagers found the lake but it disappear for 4 generations. He answered. “Nowadays there are devices called GPS can help to track the location of the lake.” I suggested. Nooh against the idea of using modern devices. As a MAN (human) he should find it himself using his bare instinct and knowledge of the forest. Wow! I respect that.

‘I drink the water of the Senipung Lake, fresh and smelless, clear and no fish. Next time I will bath in the lake ;P’ She wrote on her email. Yaaaaaaa! I can’t wait to visit the place!!! Ultimately, I am still a Sabahan and I am proud of the new finding. Thanks Colleen for contributing photos of Senipung Lake.
