Why I choose G.Rajah:
Then I heard a roar of waterfalls. I saw Edwin was waiting for us, and trekked up to where the rest of his gang also waited. Only then I realised all of us had not been to Naning Falls cos we were puzzled how to get into the waterfall. ha ha! Edwin checked for direction further up, and signalled us to trek further. After 5-10 minutes, we arrived at Naning Falls where the rest of day-hike groups rested (they arrived at 1130am).
