  • "The highlight of their visit was a group trip downriver to the Riam Parit waterfall, or rather "waterchute." After a heavy, early afternoon downpour (which, interestingly, barely raised the river level at all—the hydrological buffering role of a healthy forest)—we hiked along riverbank for a half hour through the leech-rich riparian forest. The sun lined up perfectly to throw golden beams through the steam rising from the warm, damp rocks. We waded across the river just above the falls, and carefully made our way down the other side over slippery boulders. The water has cut a deep groove though the granite; hence "parit," or channel. Numerous circular holes dot the surface of the rocks like cauldrons. These are filled with large, rounded rocks which be formed when the river is in spate: the swift current apparently drives the contained rocks round and round in their holes, but without washing them out; thus these perfect cylinders are ground into the bedrock."
