I used to do all the above.. ie, mountain biking (mostly at mount kiara), abseiling or rock climbing at bukit takun, trekking, camping (I was a scout master), etc...

But now, too old and no time ler... if you like mountain biking, I can recommend you join a very active group that does this every month.

I used to hike up Penang Hill.. well, not all the way to the peak, just halfway up, through the jungle trail. Best form of exercise ever! Haven't done anything much since I moved down to KL tho, haha.. wouldn't mind picking up outdoor activities again!

I used to do kayakking and trekking.as per Ezer now too old or too bz.no time.he!!!he!!

Filin,I suggest you buy Star Paper every Saturday.They normally have 1 section in Star Two for the activities mentioned above.sometimes they provide details like who to contact and the organisation address etc.

I'm afraid of the kayak turning over in the rapids, so I don't kayak. But trekking....I don't know of any groups, but places that I find quite fun to trek are the Taman Negara, the trails in Cameron Highlands, Terengganu (near Lake Kenyir), or, FRIM right in our backyard. You can hike up to the suspension bridge, too.

We used to do a lot of that during weekends, but these past 2 years, my hubby has been real busy so we haven't been to FRIM lately.

hi filin

good suggestion. i posted mine at the wrong sectgion and wrong thread.

i'm taking up "mountain climbing" but it's more like mountain walking. my group is going up mt kk next april 2009 and we're planning the logistics now. group leader is planning for 8 in the group, there are already 3 of us confirmed. we have the info on park fees and such but no information on how much accomodation is at mt kk.

does anyone here know of any agency that give provides quotes on accomodation at mt kk?

sorry, i'm not that much into contact sport due to a back injury - walking is about the only sport i do on a regular basis

Dearest June



thanks for appearing at the right moment.

prior to this, my friend, the group organiser, wrote to a travel agent that was recommended by SSL but we have yet to hear from them. he understood from some of his gunung online forumers that the reservation for accomodation at mt kk is already open and yet this agent kept silent.

the proposed trip date is 28th april to 1st may 2009.

you know what june? i'll PM the details to you and would appreciate if you could help us to get quotes for our mt kk trip. based on our previous trip, we know approximately how much it'll cost in terms of fees viz-a-vis the park i.e. registration, guide fee, porter fee, etc, etc but we don't have quotes for accomodation.

i'll let you have the prelim trip itinerary that my group leader drew up.

we're going to book our flight tickets via air asia so that's taken care off - air asia has so much delightful offers!

oh thanks so much....

hi filin,

final cost not known yet. perhaps june can give us an estimate.

details to PM me..
