At about one hour walk of 2.5km from the carpark at Venus Drive. We finally made it to the Tree Top Walk. ¬†From here, we have the bird’s eye view of the whole forest.

Be prepared to be embraced by the nature. Filled with Lots of greenery and pythoncidere, which calm our stressful mind. Relax and feel the love from mother nature.

We have completed about 7km trail within 3 hours. Amazing! After calories burning session, we heading to the Roti Prata House for some really sinful food to restore calories :p

These two dishes are the recommended one – Maggie Goreng and Bomb Cheese. But personally prefer the Maggie Goreng. It is something that I have yet to come across at other Indian Eatery. Too bad they don’t serve masala tea ¬†and even on special request ūüė¶

Israel – Adventurous Jeep Ride

After our wonderful lunch at the Ein Gev Fish Restaurant, we are heading next to our long-waited jeep tour!!

This is my very first experience on a jeep! So excited~

Our jeep tour guide, Yishay Yechieli, came to pick us up at the restaurant. And, the fun-filled adventure ride began. Let’s go~~!!

 
Yishay took us to the Jordan Valley which forms part of the larger Jordan Rift Valley.  It runs from Lake Tiberias to Dead Sea and the border between Israel, Jordan and West Bank.  To enjoy such a scenic view, one of the best way is to jump onto a jeep :D. 

Israel – Waiting to be explore

During my sharing, I realised that many thought that Israel is a¬†religious¬†place for Christianity and thought that I was there for missionary trip. Emm… Sorry… I’m not.

And, I’m¬†going to share with you on this promised land aka Israel.

She borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the north-east, Jordan in the east, Egypt and the Gaza Strip in the southwest, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea to the south.  It contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area.  Driving from North to South will take no more than 5 hours.  If you look at the map, she is long and slim.

Actually, I do not want to touch on the economy but I think a short one will let people have a rough idea?

She is a developed country, a OECD member, and its economy, based on the nominal gross domestic product, was the 40th-largest in the world in 2011.  Surprise? Surprises?

Dead Sea in Israel

We are heading to the DEAD SEA

Right! The only sea on earth where you can not get yourself drown..
At most, just gulp mouthful of water.

We are now at sea level! Moving forward slowly~~

What’s so amazing about DEAD SEA?

The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth in any land mass (417 meters below sea level). It is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point. The quantity of water that evaporates from it is greater than that which flows into it, such that this body of water has the highest concentration of salt in the world (340 grams per liter of water).
