Trekking aficionados will have a blast. After all, we're pretty much surrounded by all kinds of natural terrain, from bushland to thick tropical rain forest. This whole area is a veritable ecotourism paradise. And because the area is dotted with quite a few rolling hills of varying steepness, it offers all kinds of challenges to newbies and hard-core trekkies too.
Come bird-watching, caving, rock-climbing, river cruising, white-water rafting or scubadiving at Malaysia Sea Sports. Meet locals from remote villages and stay overnight in longhouses for an immersive cultural experience that few travellers get to know. It will be a trip of a lifetime!
Make sure you also climb Gunung Arong, which at almost 300 meters high is quite a vigorous but enjoyable challenge. But worry not, Malaysia Sea Sports' experienced guides always make sure that the pace is nice and slow enough for everyone to keep up and enjoy the trek. Because that's what it's all about, the joy of being surrounded by the tranquillity of nature and of being one with the jungle and your fellow trekkies.
So come, take the road less travelled and explore the immense natural beauty as you trek deep into this remote area still quite untouched by tourism.
But don't forget to bring your mountain boots, because you'll come across your fair share of fallen tree trunks, mossy rocks and slippery mud. Let's face it, it wouldn't be fun without some serious obstacles to conquer.
