Royal Belum Package 2017

Royal Belum Package 2017: Come escape to Earth’s oldest rainforest and experience unspoilt nature at its best.


The Royal Belum Rainforest is a state park located in the northern most corner of the state of Perak. Bordering Thailand, it is touted to be one of Peninsular Malaysia’s largest stretches of virgin jungle. Belum-Temenggor is believed to have been in existence for over 130 million years making it one of the world’s oldest rainforests, older than both the Amazon and the Congo. This large area thrives with birdlife and large animals regarded as highly endangered such as tapirs, tigers, sun bears, panthers, elephants and the endangered Sumatran rhino.

I would like to remind you – to visit to the Royal Belum state park you will require advance arrangement of at least one week for the park permit processing. If you do not have sufficient time for the permit processing, there are also various excursions into the jungle south of the park and entry permit is not required. To country’s second largest lake, Lake Temenggor, is situated within the state park. All excursions around the park area are conducted by boat as this is to only method available to access the areas of interest.



Key attractions
(i) Bumbun or observation shelters offer visitors a rare opportunity to glimpse wildlife from safety. An astounding number of exotic wildlifespecies including fourteen of the worlds most threatened mammals make their home in the forest.
(ii) Lake Temenggor is a man-made lake where visitors can relax and enjoy the tranquility.
(iii) There are also small islands and beautiful waterfalls which can be visited for a relaxing experience.
(iv) The Royal Belum State Park is also the home to aboriginal tribes who live within the dense jungles going about their simple way of life.

Things to Do
(i) Visit Kampung Chuweh and have a hand at blowpipes, which the aborigines use to hunt and defend themselves.
(ii) Take nature tour by river cruise or jungle trekking to spot the various wildlife species.
(iii) Exercise your angling skills by fishing at the Lake Temenggor which is home to various freshwater fish species.
(iv) Charter a house-boat to travel and spend a few nights on the lake.

If you are looking for a hotel at Tasik Banding, or Gerik (closest towns to the Royal Belum) you can also use the search box below to look for a hotel that suits you. 


There are only 2 resorts in the area for those looking for more comfortable stay. They are the Belum Rainforest Resort (use the link to book the hotel online) and the Tasik Banding Resort (closed down). I don’t mean to be partial but I prefer the Belum Rainforest Resort – the rooms are pleasantly appointed and it has the lush, quiet resort feel. It is a bit expensive. The meals at the resort are satisfactory but can also be expensive. There aren’t any restaurants outside of the resort and most of them are locally operated food stalls and they are not opened all the time. If you do not mind that, then it will be ok for you.


This is where my company My Adventure Host comes in. If you have booked your accommodation, you can contact us to conduct your Royal Belum tours for you. We accept small groups, families and also large company outings etc. Like all tours, there are significant savings when you come in a larger group mainly due to the fact that most fixed costs are divided among a larger group of people.


If you are staying at the Belum Rainforest Resort try driving up on the East – West Highway to Hentian Titiwangsa. It is a rest area. Nice cool temperature here and it gives you a panoramic view of the Royal Belum. It is just half an hour away (approx 31 kms).

Penang for the Nature Enthusiast

There is more to Penang than the beaches and Georgetown.

While Penang is home to a bustling metropolitan city, there are plenty of nature-based activities to enjoy here for the nature enthusiast. Jungle trekking in Penang National Park, the world’s smallest national park, is a popular activity among tourists and locals alike, with well-marked trails leading to both turtle and monkey beach. Both hikes take around 1.5 – 2 hours, and both beaches are accessible by boat. Many travelers enjoy the National Park so much that they stay for a night or two to camp. Wildlife in the area includes monkeys, monitor lizards and even migratory birds, frequently sighted at the mangrove swamps and mudflats in the park.

There are also 3 recreational parks that I know of in Penang: Teluk Bahang, Sungai Tukun and Bukit Mertajam. Teluk Bahang has a good network of hiking trails, along with well-maintained camping areas. Sungai Tukun is relatively small, and attracts a variety of wildlife, which visitors can observe, along with panoramic views, from the park’s observation tower. Bukit Mertajam, the largest of the parks, sprawls over 37 hectares of hilly terrain, and its 4 km hiking trail, which runs from the base of the mountain to its peak, is a favorite among joggers.

The beaches in Malaysia are a large draw for eco-tourists as well, and Batu Ferringhi, the most well-known, is a hive of activity from sunrise to sunset. For the adrenaline junkie, this stretch of white sand boasts a number of water activities, like banana boating, parasailing and jet-skiing for a medium fee. Further down is Teluk Bahang Beach, which is home to a traditional fishing village, and beyond that, Pantai Kerachut and Pantai Mas which are accessible via the trails in the Pantai Acheh Forest Reserve from Teluk Bahang.

Some travelers may want to encounter a variety of wildlife without straying too far from George Town. If this sounds like you, I would recommend checking out the Penang Bird Park, a 5-acre track of land that hosts over 300 species of birds from all over the world for breeding and conservation purposes. The Bird Park also houses numerous other species, including deer, reptiles and tortoises.

If you’re a bit of a foodie, and you want to learn how some of the local spices are grown, you can pay a visit to the Tropical Spice Garden, an artfully recreated tropical rainforest oasis outside of George Town, with spice garden terraces, walking trails and small trickling streams and waterfalls. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of monkeys jumping through the tree tops overhead. While I didn’t manage to get to the spice gardens, I did take a tour of the tropical fruit farm in Teluk Bahang. The orchard covers 25 acres and it is brimming with rare and exotic fruit trees. At the end, there is a fruit and juice buffet, included in the entrance fee, which I found delightful.

While it can be a little bit intimidating to venture out into the wild on your own, it can also be extremely rewarding, and there are many areas in and around Penang that are well worth a visit. If you’re a bit more tentative, there are also many eco tours that can be booked for a nominal fee. These will typically include an informative guide, as well as pick up and drop off from your hotel.

Gunung Tahan Climbing Package


If you have the sudden yearn to conquer a mountain in Peninsula Malaysia look no further as there is Gunung Tahan for you to attempt and conquer. Our Gunung Tahan Package provides you with the opportunity to reach the 2187m summit. Gunung Tahan after all is the highest peak in Peninsula Malaysia.

Your journey to reach the top of the mountain will require you to pluck up your courage to ascend and descend mountains, cross and wade through rivers, camp with basic necessities, experience the discomfort of being wet and cold and more. It can be one of the best outdoor experience you will go through.

gunung tahan packageLocated in the heart of the Taman Negara National Park, climbing and reaching the summit and descending will normally take about 5 days. Any shorter trip will require higher endurance level by the climbing group.

To familiarize yourself, this peak is approximately 53km from Kampung Kuala Tahan in near Jerantut, Pahang. A closer location to reach Gunung Tahan would be from Kuala Juram (entry point is Taman Negara Sungai Relau). It is only 32km from this location. Our staging point of the Gunung Tahan Package starts from here. Remember, this program starts and ends in Merapoh, Pahang.

Gunung Tahan is truly not for the fainthearted. Even the shortest, the Merapoh-Merapoh trail, takes three to four days to complete. Known as one of the toughest treks and among the most challenging mountains to climb in the region due to the various peaks one would have to ascend and descend before reaching the main summit, much is still being discovered about Gunung Tahan.


i. Gunung Tahan is situated in the Tahan Range in Peninsula Malaysia.

ii. It is reputed to be about 250 million years old and formed during the prehistoric era.

iii. It was formed about 150 million years earlier than the oldest rainforest in the world which grew around it.


Do not take this climb lightly as you will need to be physically fit – it is a well known fact that this climb is tougher than climbing Mount Kinabalu in Sabah. So get your fitness level up with sufficient training starting a few months prior to the climb. A medical check up although not required by us is highly recommended especially if you are over 40 years old.

Warning: Anyone wanting to take part in a Gunung Tahan climb must be aware of the difficulty of the climb and the perilous journey to be encountered. Climbers must be strong willed, fit and prepared – the more experience you have under your belt the better.

With that being said accidents do happen and a life was lost on the climb to Mount Tahan in Feb of 2016. Click here to read the news in The Star newspaper.

Thank you to Google Maps Street View for making the Imagery available thus making it easier for climbers to prepare for their climb. And also for those that are not able to do the climb to get a feel of the climb without leaving the comfort of their armchair.

Endau Rompin Adventure Package 5 Days 4 Nights

Endau Rompin Adventure Package 5 Days 4 Nights: A Journey of Discovery off the Beaten Track

Gazetted as a National Park in 1993, the Endau-Rompin National Park has waterfall-laden jungle teeming with animals. Think of it as the place to come when you feel like wanting to experience the  ‘deep Malaysian interior’. The park straddles the Johor-Pahang border. It is 260-million-year-old and the 870-sq-km park is the second-largest one on the peninsula after the heavily promoted and more well-known Taman Negara.

This park is mostly unexplored and for the normal visitor there are only a few trails available in Endau-Rompin.  Exploration is therefore limited. But you will be surprised that what you can see is spectacular. The park’s lowland forests are among the last in Peninsular Malaysia and have been identified as harbouring unique varieties of plant life including enormous umbrella palms, with their characteristic fan-shaped leaves, and Livinstona endanensis, a species of palm with serrated circular leaves.

We have put together an itinerary which is not rushed and one that will take you to some of the highlights the park can offer. This is a 5 day 4 night program covering the Endau Rompin National Park. There are 2 gateways into the park which are from Kahang or Selai. Note that no trails link these 2 areas.
This package takes you into the park from the town of Kahang and finishes back in this town.

12 Essential Items That Can Save Your Life If You Were Lost While Trekking

Many of  my guests who come on outdoor adventure trips ask me what I carry in my back pack when I hit the trails or go trekking into the wilderness. They would like to know what recommendations I have for them. And if they were to pack for a trek what would the essential items be. Things that would be beneficial to them for the trip should their trip back be delayed requiring them to stay longer. Or, let’s say if they were lost. What are the items that they have in their pack that could propably help increase their chances of survival, or at the very least make them comfortable while they wait for help.  With that in mind, I sat down an wrote this blog post  on “12 Essential Items That Can Save Your Life If You Were Lost While Trekking”.

Before I started writing this post, I had a quick look in my backpack thinking that listing out the items in this post was sufficient. But I realized that what you do before you start stuffing you backpack is also important. So the first thing if I were you is to ask yourself how long would your trip be. Things that go into the backpack would really depend on how long your trip is.

Essential items taken on a day trip or an overnighter would be lesser than a longer trip. Trip spanning a few days would require even more essential items which would probably be explained in another posting.

Since many people would be going out trekking on day trips I would really want to address this group of people first.  Generally day trips would also interest newbies who are only starting to get their feet wet in trekking and hiking activities.  Because the trip is short, probably taking only a few hours and thinking they would be back at the trail head before sun down they would probably bring only a few essential items like water and some food in their backpack.  This is where the problem starts because they are ill-prepared should something happen along the way on their trek such as an injured team member or getting lost.

In my opinion people who go on longer journeys tend to be more prepared because they would have given more thought and planning into what items they would need to bring with them.

Please note that most of my trails are in tropical jungle and rainforest so the essential items listed here may not be applicable to those trekking or trail walking in other type of forests.

Yes, you may not believe it but these are the things I carry on day trips.  To me they are essential items to carry with me to raise the odds in my favor should some thing unplanned happen.


Either matches or disposable lighters – you don’t have to carry both. Matches are cheaper but if you are lousy at lighting fires with them you can finish a box in no time. They can get crushed easily too. To avoid getting them wet I would recommend that you apply vaseline onto the match sticks before putting them into a waterproof container.

A disposable lighter is cheap and can go a long way. Unfortunately, it is not biodegradeable and when lighted for sometime the metal head gets really hot and may burn you fingers if you touched it. If the lighter gets wet you may not get any spark from the flint wheel in the metal head and you may not be able to light it up. Putting it to dry in the hot sun may help.

I feel comfortable knowing that I can start a fire if I needed to.   If I ever got stuck,  fire can be my source of light, heat and comfort at night. The smoke and heat will chase away insects and wild animals too. And I can start to cook some hot food or prepare a hot drink. For rescue purposes, creating thick smoke from the fire will assist rescuers in spotting where I am.


When it gets dark, a small flashlight or a headlamp will help you find your way around. Believe me, in the rainforest due to the thick forest canopy it normally gets dark much earlier. Now with the latest technology in bright LEDs, flashlights and headlamps are much brighter and they are much lighter because they don’t need large batteries. The Petzl headlamp (like in the photo on the left) only requires 3 AAA sized alkaline batteries. Since the LEDs do not drain very much, the headlamp last much longer – sometime several trips before needing a change.  When you get yourself a flashlight or headlamp, I would recommend that you buy the LED type and do away with the conventional bulb types. It’s your choice whether you want to carry a flashlight or a headlamp. As for me I prefer a headlamp because when I wear it on my forehead, my hands are completely free to do other tasks. I use a Petzl headlamp like this and just love the brightness of this unit.


I am a strong advocate of carrying a handheld GPS on any outdoor trip. The reason being is the trail logging feature of the GPS. It will record your trail as you move (make sure you swith on your GPS before you start 🙂 and if you were ever lost you just need to save the trail into the GPS and activate the ‘track back’ button. It will trace your way back to the starting point so just follow it and hopefully the GPS will take you out of your mess. So for me with the GPS I can do away with markings on trees and trails (like what we had learnt as boyscouts) or the need to carry a compass and a map. There is no damage to the trees as we don’t have to make markings on them or break their branches. Don’t forget to carry an extra set of batteries though.

Get the handheld models which are hardy and normally waterproof. Good brands can capture weak satellite signals under thick forest canopy. My trusted unit is a Garmin 60Csx but there is a newer Garmin model here.

Wouldn’t it be cool to give your exact waypoints to rescuing parties or the helicopter flying in to rescue you? 🙂


To me these are my emergency rations and different from any food which I could be carrying. They will only be consumed when in an emergency and I have finished my food supply altogether.

  • 2 bars of chocolate because they give energy and they are also my comfort food. They can be kept without spoiling.
  • Individually packed biscuits.
  • Soup powder. You can make a hot soup with hot water. Imagine if you were lost in the jungle and it was raining. You’d have some hot sustenance to make.
  • Tea bags, coffee sachets. So I can have a hot drink when I need one. I don’t bring sugar because that will add weight and I can get by without it. Water would be sourced in the area where I will be at.
  • I got a good tip from my 10 year old son. He told me to pack  Murukku! (a typical Indian spicy crisps made of chickpeas and lentils). I thought his idea is great because they are cheap, full of protein and they keep well for a long time. So I will definitely include this in my emergency ration (I can remove biscuits from my food ration since I don’t like biscuits anyway – they could be either too bland or too sweet).
  • All this are put into a metal mug. Mug will be used for drinking, boiling water, cooking the soup etc. To stir, I will get a clean branch from a non-poisonous tree for the job.


Because I can get a bad allergy from insect bites I carry a tube of Eurax. The cream is applied onto the irritated skin and it is great for all types of itches. I don’t bother too much packing small handplasts because small grazes and cuts don’t bother me too much. But I will pack some 3″x3″ cotton gauze and surgical tapes for larger wounds. I also pack some anti-histamines pills for allergies and also some painkillers. I would also put in a large 2’x’2 cotton cloth which can be fashioned into a brace or wrap if needed. It also can be used as a twist tourniquet if required.


Just in case I need coverage I can fashion the tarp into a roof, I can use it to collect water,cover my belongings from the rain etc. I carry a small one which is about 4 feet x 4 feet and can be folded into a small bag and stored in the backpack.


Ropes have many uses and they would be used if I need to tie or secure items together, or build a tent, etc. I would pack 1 piece of 1/4 inch double braided polyester rope about a 10ft in length. I don’t like the cheap plastic nylon ropes because they are difficult to tie and they slip easily.


I carry about 1.5 liters. I don’t like to carry too much because it is the single heaviest thing in my backpack. Abt 1 liter if I know I can source for water easily. I prefer to carry mine in a Camelbak bladder. Then I would just place the bladder into my backpack which already has a compartment for it.


Blowing a whistle to get attention is better than shouting as it uses less effort. The sound from the whistle also travels further.  The loud shrill from the whistle can also startle and chase animals which may be close or approaching you. Get something like JetScream whistle here.


Yes, the modern day adventurer carries a cellphone. I would make sure that it’s fully charged and I would switch it off when I am out of network coverage area so that the cellphone will not drain the battery as it attemps to locate its network. My idea is if I should get stuck and while waiting for rescue, I can play the music I have stored into it, read an e-book or play games. And if it is GPS enabled, it can also be a backup for my handheld GPS.


Most of the items you would be carrying such as your First Aid kit, cellphone, food ration, etc are to be kept dry or risk them being ruined due to water. On your trail, you may be crossing a river, or experiencing a torrential downpour so it is imperative that you keep these items dry. The best way to do it is to pack them into waterproof pouches. I highly recommend you put them into Aloksak pouches like this. They come in various sizes. Distribute your items into separate pouches such as one for medicine, another for eletronic devices, etc. It makes it so much easier to get your things and you are also in a way spreading your risk – rather than putting all dry items into one large pouch. If it should tear you risk damaging all the items in that pouch. Whereas if you put them into different pouches, if one were to tear then only items in that pouch risk being damaged by water.


I would never go out on a trek without one. To me it is just as important as being able to start a fire. There are so many choices out there but from all the knives I have used, I love the Mora Bushcraft Triflex. It’s not sexy but it serves its function extremely well.  It is not only comfortable to use but very sharp too. It can be used for all types of cutting. It’s great for cutting rope, wood or plant matter, eating, and I could see skinning with it.  You can put this into your backpack or strap it on your waist. In Malaysia you can purchase Mora knives from Outdoor Dynamics based in Penang. (just google them).

So there you go..I hope you find my post on the 12 Essential Items that can save your life if you were Lost helpful.

Tips on Getting Ready for the Taman Negara Sungai Relau Merapoh Adventure

Tips on Getting Ready for the Taman Negara Sungai Relau Merapoh Adventure: May save you not only time but your money too.

For your packing list, we would recommend you have comfortable clothes like t-shirt (easy dry long pants are better than shorts). For caving, wear something that you won’t mind getting dirty. You can wear this same clothes when you visit the Kuala Juram Sanctuary the next day as both these visits are ‘wet’. Please have comfortable shoes for the trip. Wear something you wouldn’t mind getting wet and dirty but gives a good grip when you walk. This will be especially useful when you walk in the cave or in the stream on Day 2 of your trip.

Wearing something like the TEVA river sandals are good. You don’t have to buy Teva though because they are very expensive. I have tried them on wet rocks and they suck. You can get these teva like velcro sandals at the Bata shop and most sports shop in town. They are easy to dry and feels better than walking in wet shoes. To select a good pair, look for those with soles that are rubbery and soft – they are good for slippery surfaces.

petzl tikka headlampYou will also need a headlamp for each of you for the caving. Headlamps are better that flashlights because you can keep your hands free because there will be some climbing, grabbing, holding etc  involved in the cave.

If you are travelling in a group, make sure everyone in your group has one. It feels a lot better with your own headlamp than sharing the same light source with others.

insect repellent taman negaraThese headlamps (made in China) can be found cheap at our night markets they cost about RM15- RM30 each. They are good enough for the caving and night walk which you will be doing. You don’t really need to get those expensive Petzl headlamps to use only during these 2 activities. Find a headlamp which uses the CREE light source. They are newer technology and emits brighter light than than the LED types. Make sure you replace the free battery they give you with fresh alkaline batteries to make sure that your light will not fade on you in the cave. Go for branded batteries like Energizer or Duracell – don’t rely on the cheap made in China batteries.

If you are bringing your family and you have young children, get insect repellant for your kids’ comfort. Can be in cream or stick form. They are available at any of our drug stores like Guardian or Watsons. I find the more expensive they are the more effective .. so you get what you pay for.

Pack some high energy food and food your kids like. There are not many stores in Merapoh or the park that you can get food which your kids may be familiar with especially if you are coming from overseas and not used to the local food.

3 Day 2 Night Endau Rompin Adventure Package

The Endau-Rompin National Park, gazetted as a National Park in 1993, is the second designated national park in Peninsular Malaysia after the world famous Taman Negara. With an area encompassing the southern part of Pahang to the northern part of Johor it covers an estimated area of about 49,000 hectares. Endau-Rompin has one of world’s oldest rainforests. The volcanic rocks there date back 240 million years. The park is named after 2 rivers which are the Endau river in the south of Johor and the Rompin river in north of Pahang. It boasts of the same rich flora and somewhat elusive fauna like in Taman Negara, but you will notice when you are here that it is more pristine with a setting which is uncrowded and untouristy.
