Highlights

Hike up the river and pitch your tent right by the waterfall! The next day embark on a day of adrenaline-pumping abseiling down the waterfall.



Here’s the plan: On Saturday early morning we will hop on our bus to Gombak, north of Kuala Lumpur. After a brief hike through the jungle we’ll have picnic up at Sofea Jane waterfall and then head on to Pisang waterfall.

Our journey on foot will lead us through streams up to knee height, over rocks and muddy banks. Once we reach the waterfall, we will pitch our tents, light up a bonfire, and prepare our camping dinner together.

We will sit around the bonfire, tell each other stories, sing songs, or just chill, while listening to the sound of the water coming down the fall.

The next morning after breakfast we will be briefed on abseiling and then abseil down the waterfall!

We’ll have a BBQ right by the fall before we hop on the bus back to Singapore.

It will cost us $185 and we need 12 people to make this trip happen. If we are more than 24, the price will reduce to $175. It includes the following:


1) All transport starting from JB


2) Tent equipment rental and abseiling equipment rental


3) Safety crew, abseiling instructor, trekking guides


4) Afternoon picnic and dinner on day 1, breakfast and BBQ lunch on day 2 


Excludes:


1)  Visa


2)  Insurance



Notes:


1) You DON’T need your own tent, camping experience, or any special equipment. You DO need to be willing to hike for a couple of hours over rocks and through knee-deep rivers.


2) There are no facilities at the waterfall, so nature’s duties will be carried out in the woods :)


3) Pack your backpack such that there is space to carry a couple of food items for the group. We’ll distribute some items before the hike begins.

No coach is not provided in Singapore which caused inconvenience. 2. Meeting point is at woodlands checkpoint at 645. Hence, the participants had to take cab. 3. 20 pax squeezed in two MPV which is provided in JB to the surfing place. 4. Mee hoon or new goreng is provided for lunch. 5. Vendor employed by organiser insisted to eat dinner at a place of their liking. 6. Organiser was not there to coordinate with vendor. And in any dispute e.g. stated in 5, the group is under the mercy of the vendor. Read less

  • Twenty went with a guide and still smooth and swift to a site suitable for beginner surf for most and advanced surf for some. Convenient with village house shower and shelter if it ever rain. All in all a good Saturday trip for the sun, the sea and the surf!!
