To get out from the city once in awhile is a good way to release stress and to calm yourself down for a start for the week! Thus, my friend managed to find one interesting place which is not really far from the city center to spend our weekend and it was the waterfall. Kiansom is a very small village which is 5-7 km away from Inanam town and it takes about 30-45 minutes of driving from the city center. At the corner of the village is hidden with some wonderful waterfalls which is the Kiansom waterfall. It is rated in the top 10 list of the nicest waterfalls in Sabah.
Before starting our journey, we had our breakfast at this mamak restaurant for cheesee naan. I find that this place is selling one of the cheapest breakfast in town. It was only RM 2.50 per piece. Side dishes such as Tandoori chicken is RM 7.50 and minced beef with potato is RM 2.50 only. This is much more worthy that eating economic noodles with nothing!
Cheese naan with a cup of teh tarik (milk tea)!
After having a great breakfast, it was time to start our journey before the sun goes right at the top of your head! The road was much better than was expected, not the bumpy type. At least the damage to the car was almost NIL. =)
Welcome to Kiansom waterfall; though it's a tourist attraction but this place was not well promoted. Entrance fee is only RM 1.50 per person.
To get to this waterfall was not challenging at all but there was a very nice pathway to get to this waterfall.
Clean and well-maintained changing room near the entrance
Ok, this was the challenging one! Time for some exercise to hike into the jungle for some nicer waterfalls. You may not notice that this is actually a route. If you are not sure, ask the locals and they are very friendly...
"Where should I go next?!" XD
To hike in, it takes about 15-20 minutes and it all depends on your stamina. Make sure that you put on a pair of good shoes and make yourself as light as possible. Don't let whatever you carry become a burden for you! Beware of leeches and get a small bottle of salt in hand.
Ta-daa... Here you go!!! Seventh waterfall of Kiansom

Here you go. Be more adventurous and get out from the city! =) And lastly, pray for flight MH 370..
