I’ve always loved visiting beautiful nature spots whenever I travel because the thought that these places are amazing but need no effort to produce is just awesome. Hence, I was elated and looking forward to see the Sea of Clouds at I-Yerweng (a.k.a. Talay Mok Aiyoe Weng) when I saw it in our Betong, Thailand FAM trip itinerary.

FYI, Betong is 5 hours drive from KL and 4.5 hours drive from Hatyai, Thailand. If you have been to Belum Rainforest Resort, it is only 1.5 hours away to the north.

Here are some facts about I-Yerweng for your reference if you’re planning to go there:

  1. The breathtaking Sea of Clouds / Sea of Mists is located at 330 feet above sea level on Mount Silipat

  4. During the weekend, it could be crowded. Our van needed to queue to go up the hill and get parked but we didn’t want to miss the scenery so we decided to hike uphill for about 5 minutes before we reach the viewpoint.
