On 6th and 7th under the Musseum Volunteer's year end program we went to Lenggong and Bujang Valley. A total of about 15 participants in 4 vehicles drove from Museum to Lenggong. We started at about 6:00am in the morning.
We arrived at Lenggong at about 10:00am (4 hours drive without stopping).
We were welcome by Shaiful, May and Khairul of USM at Lenggong town. After taking our breakfast we proceeded to Lenggong Musseum where were given a tour by Professor Mohktar of USM.

Thereafter we were shown Kota Tampan which is just nearby to the Mussuem. After a hearty lunch at Tasik Raban Resort, we proceeded to the residence of Perak Man. The climbing is easy and everyone managed to arrived at the cave safely after donating some blood to the leeches.
After Perak Man's cave or better known as Gua Tanah Runtuh, we return to Tasek Raban Resort to clean up, rest and waiting for dinner.
After dinner, stomach filled and body aching, we hit the bunk dreaming about Bujang Valley and her gold. The next day, 7th December 2011, early morning at 6:30am we frove to Bujang Valley at Merbok in upper Kedah.
We visited the Sungai Batu excavation sites and the Bujang Valley Musseum.

Although we find no gold but we found the diggers.
After Bujang Valley Musseum, we said good bye and drove home, with many memory of the ancient civilization living in the valley about 1 AD ago.
