130. Bukit pantu
The next morning the humidity was even higher than the day before. We had decided to climb Bukit Pantu, the second highest hill in the national park. This makes it around 400 meters above sea level. Not unexpectedly, it was mostly uphill. At some places, there were stairs and ladders to make the climb easier. This time we didn't pass any pool for a refreshing swim, but at the top of Bukit Pantu, a nice breeze was blowing. The view was nice and one could almost see the entire Lambir Hills National Park. It was also easy the spot the "line" between the forest and the surrounding oil palm plantations.
