With the Kuantan River there is a quite wide and with River and River Teso Singingi make some of the areas are located in the area of the river plains.

Kuantan Singingi have the potential of tourism is big enough, either y or natural history. The most potential tourism mendarah flesh for the life of society is spur routes. Iven spur path that most held once a year, in order to commemorate the independence day of Indonesia on edge Narosa, Teluk Kuantan. Akan potential but still many others that have not been developed. Potential cultural tour that consists of natural, traditional ceremonies, art, folk games, the things historical, and so forth.

8 July 2008 ago Riau Pos opportunity to visit several areas in which natural lake shrimp in Rawang Village Talontam District Benai, waterfalls Gemurai Guruh Village Kasang Mudik Kuantan District, and seven levels of waterfalls in the Village District of Lubuk Ambacang Hulu Kuantan.

Shrimp Lake Rawang was just a swamps dialiri the creek. After the dam was built, terbentuklah a small lake. Here, some provided by the boat's fiberglass (train water) and two buildings in the middle of the lake. This place will be visited during busy holidays. On a normal day just a small community or youth-mudi seen with foot paddle boat provided.

Up in the area, we are through a bridge that extends from the Market Sungai Kuantan Benai. On the left side and right side of the road to the various areas of oil palm companies and the paper, spread rice field and residential that make eyes look cool.

Air Terjun Guruh Gemurai

This region is Kasang Village, District of Kuantan Mudik a distance of about 10 km from the market Lubuk Jambi. The border-Sumbar Riau is a protected forest area of Bukit Betabuh. But unfortunately bergulirnya since the reform era, the forest was beautiful with the slope-steep hill slopes, now no more left, destroyed due to illegal logging and switch with the rubber gardens community.

When this road to waterfall is in the repair and widening. Some of the uphill road dilandaikan now. Practical, if rainy days, the car will not be able to enter because of slippery roads. Edge of the national road, this area is approximately 2 km through a forest that was planted bald rubber aged between 2-7 years.

Until the location, at the height of the hall will be found a few that can be used for just a moment of rest while enjoying the rural panorama of nature extends to the right we flow with the Kuantan River winding.

So then one kilometer at a location we Terjun Air Guruh Gemurai. From a distance is heard thundering waterfalls as though you're in the condition of heavy rain. Tired of walking also sirna when we began to breathe fresh air, trees that tower, which still remains among terjalnya waterfalls.

In this location is built of concrete facility built in between the cliffs and walk down to the waterfall pond fall. Here are two waterfalls, the main waterfall at almost twenty meters.

Swimming in the waterfall is the main visitors can bathe in it up between the fresh water gemerisik accompanied in the water that flows between the rocks and large trees ridangnya.

On the left towards the waterfall there are some workers who are beraktivitas. According to the Head Office of Tourism Arts and Culture Kuansing Drs Syafrinal MSi, where it is being built and the parking of vehicles musala. ''We are gradually membenahi and complete tourist facilities in the area, this year we focus on the Air Terjun Guruh Gemurai, next year we move to the new Air Terjun Level Seven,''a Syafrinal.

Air Terjun Level Seven

Level Seven Terjun Air Batang Village Koban Lubuk Ambacang Hulu Kuantan District, is one of the beautiful waterfalls and the highest in the Kuansing. This region can be by road and then proceed with using the boat for about 15 minutes to the river headwaters.

From the market toward Lubuk Jambi village Lubuk Ambacang with time of the vehicle about 20 minutes away by road asphalt. Can also enter from the Village Jake, corner post to the village police Serosah, Mudiak Ulo to Kombu Koto village road through the land of the time the vehicle about 40 minutes.

To the Village Lubuk Ambacang, from Koto Kombu us through concrete bridge that extends above the Kuantan River. Travel proceed with the boat had between 15 to 25 people that can be found under the bridge or around the Market Lubuk Ambacang with the rental price Rp150 thousand.

From here we will be the river to the headwaters of the time with about 15 minutes. During the trip that we can enjoy hujaunya trees on a hill with a slope of between 45 degrees to 70 degrees. The width of the river upstream to the decline and debitnya any more downpours.

Not far from the bridge, we will pass the shell island. Water here, such as curved shell. Distance from the water that flows appear calm, but if passed arusnya quite swift, especially when the Sungai Kuantan again subside. Boat must go slowly on the edge of the cliffs and rocks. But if in the water, the resulting flow is not too fast, you can go boating in the middle of the river.

Without us even feel up to the location, boat-dock at any ditambat Pemkab built several years ago with a timber bridge extends over a small river flow waterfall of seven levels.

From the dock we can already see the first waterfall thundering sound of clear water creek. From the first waterfall to the fourth cataract, a visitor can be through the canyon with steep cliffs, through the concrete stairs in between the trees that are still beautiful. Although the day was lunch, but rindangnya trees and waterfalls breezy wind, making the temperature around us feel cool and comfortable long-berlama.

Bambang Wahyu is Jatmiko, producers and leaders of the Mara Studio at that time with two colleagues, Rudi, and Anto visit in the framework of the image to the background video clips and learning rarak godang Singingi Kuantan, which ditaja NGOs Tanjak Rantau, mutter,''God , the great gift of God, I hope this area are still maintained its natural beauty and can continue to enjoy the community,''Bambang call.

Bambang hope not without reason. Maraknya illegal logging activities these days, has destroyed the joints of each natural forests. No matter the protected forest, for example, which occurred in the area of protected forest Betabuh Hill, the location where waterfalls thunder gemurai. The only remaining forest in the area falls, the rest be destroyed and planted rubber.

With the wide-awake and they take pictures with a variety of positions. They directed the camera to each groove-fossa waterfalls fall menghempas water underneath. Once satisfied and enjoy taking pictures of the water level of the first and fourth with a different altitude, between 5-15 meters, the trip was resumed.

This is where the adventure begins, when we pass the fourth level to the level of the seventh. Each visitor must walk between the cliffs, the cliffs kemiringannya between 45 to 85 degrees. For nature lovers, this is a challenge as the terrain in order to generate diverting adrenalin.

Climbing through a canyon and bergantungan between root-root trees, enough energy drain. The distance between the waterfalls in the range of 50-100 meters. Although the lead dust that is quite heavy, but this will not make a bored visitor. Because each waterfall has a characteristic that is different and beautiful.

After the sixth pass waterfalls, not how far the best dijumpailah its waterfalls, with the height reached 30 meters more. Really stunning, in a pond waterfall is envisaged two layers rainbow, results from the sun bias light sprinkling of water which resulted in a gale blowing.

We only arrived in the pond water of the seventh. Heavy burden, and reduce the risk - for the previous few of us slip and squeezed between the large stones
causing a bruise, bruised foot, such as experienced Anto, Mara Studio crew should tertatih-tatih running due to a bruised foot dideritanya - we just enjoy the beauty of it down.

This adventure is different from the Jakarta Post in 1995 ago. Jakarta Post at the time to peak of the most high. However, it must be paid all costs, with the struggle of a quite tiring, climb steep rocks in between. Mistaken will fall slightly to tens of meters down. From the top of the altitude, when we look to the bottom, swimming in the waterfalls of the seven eternal rainbow that extends to the form of a circle.
