Dabong is a town of 2000 people, close to the River Galas. It is the main access point to the Stong waterfall.
By car: Route 66, either from Jeli or Gua Musang
There are usually no taxis waiting at the train station, however you might find a local person willing to bring you around either by car or motorbike.
Stong Waterfall: Find a local on a motorbike who is willing to bring you there(7km), and wait to bring you back to the station again. RM20 for a half day. If you cross the hanging bridge, there is a hut on your left with a good view up to the waterfall. If you decide to climb up the mountain, bring along proper shoes and repellant, you need both (there are 1-inch ants walking around, and a fair share of flying insects) and the trail is equipped with rope and chain in critical sections. To swim in the pond beside the bridge, bring along long swimsuits and a T-Shirt to cover you up, the local population will thank you for that.
Cave: There is a cave called "fish cave" just around 4km from the town, along Route 66, opposite direction of the waterfall. A river runs through the cave, very picturesque. Be very careful when walking into the cave as it is extremely slippery and a lot of bats will shit on your head ;) There is food available right next to the cave.
Cave and waterfall (when skipping the hike all the way up) can easily be done in 3-4h. So if you take the train you can have a stopover in Dabung and take the next train to move on.
Engage in communication with the local school kids - most of them are very eager to practise their english.
There is an internet cafe provided by the community, RM 1/hour in the orange building, two blocks away from the train station
