of the country in its pristine conditions. They will also experience the
traditional hospitable way of life and cultural presentations.
Travel downstream for 12 kilometres to the camp at Pulau Raya. It is an
island noted for the breeding of freshwater fish. Bird watchers can have a
field day 'picking out' the various species that stop-oer at this bird sanctuary
before moving 18 km to the next camp. The third camp is at Kampong Sayong Lembah. It is the Royal Town of Kuala
Kangsar. Stop-over at this town to visit the Palace, Royal Museum and the
oldest rubber-tree in the country. A visit to the traditional pottery
making (Labu Sayong) village is a must. After travelling a distance of 22
kilometres we arrive at Pulau Tepus (an island). Enjoy the panoramic view
of the natural equatorial forest. A favourite spot for anglers. If
you're lucky, you may see terrapins landing.
25 kilometres downstream and Pulau Cempaka Sari welcomes us. Take the
footbridge to Parit Town and experience the culture and traditional way of life
andi f it is the fruit season, visit the many orchards (dusun). The sixth
camp is at Pulau Tiga. 22km from Cempaka Sari. Visit the traditional
handicraft centre. Traditional drums (Rebana) are produced here.
Royal Mausoleum and Rumah Kutai (Traditional Malay house) are a must for the
visitor. When we arrive at the final camp, Pualu Semarak at Kg. Gajah, we are 95
kilometres from camp!
Visit the historical complex at Pasir Salak for a
quick run through the history of the state. Besides the places listed
above participants will pass through several other towns and villages.
