Bornean travel.

Post by odyssey » Tue Mar 10, 2009 10:51 am

Hi LOL.

I'll go to Bornean travel on leave of 10 days at next week's end.
Diving and jungle trekking are a main schedule.
Kota Kinabalu, Gunung Mulu National Park, Sipadan Water Village Resort in Mabul island and (? Tawau Hills National Park?).

If possible, I'll also observe in the valley stream.
When I'm lucky, it may be possible to see wild Gastromyzon.sp and other loach kinds.

I have returned from Borneo on Sunday.

I'm never an agent of the Malaysian Tourist Bureau.
But I'd like to make the voice big and say, "Borneo is a paradise!"
I had my heart set in order to go to Borneo again.

I am satisfied very much.
I regret only that I was not able to watch Gastromyzon.
Unfortunately the rainy season wasn't over yet, so the water level of the river was high, and it wasn't possible to see Gastromyzon.
But one on their habitat, I associated by boat.
The video when passing around their habitat by boat in Youtube, has been uploaded.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rneXkiqqbV0

The point by which voice as "around here" is heard.
The guide said that there is much Gastromyzon around here.
He catches Gastromyzon by hand around a child, and it's said that they played.

At the site, it's said that they call Gastromyzon Ikam kelekat or Putake (Putaket).

Depend on tour guide's talk, If we would like to watch Gastromyzon around Gunung Mule, the dry season is best from June to August.
The river is clear only during the dry season and it's said that it's shallow.

The guide said that there is much Gastromyzon around here.

I loaded to Freshwater Forum with fish besides the loach only a little.
