OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Malaysia?s lush nature provides the ideal setting for exciting outdoor activities. Many kampungs are nestled against the tropical rainforest. Enjoy a bath at the nearby stream, trek into the jungle or explore a mountain trail. The natural beauty and diverse flora and fauna make a visit to these rural areas truly enjoyable.

 

Outdoor-enthusiasts will find a range of ecoadventures located near to the homestay villages. You can go jungle trekking, caving, mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, river cruising, white water rafting? the possibilities are endless! Attractions that are near to the homestay villages can be explored on foot, while a leisurely bicycle ride will take visitors to other idyllic spots that are situated further away. In some villages, a ride on a boat or traditional sampan is also possible. One of Malaysia?s most unique and treasured natural marvels is Mount Kinabalu in Sabah. It is the centre piece of Kinabalu Park, Malaysia?s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. Interestingly, a homestay experience provides the perfect opportunity to take in the beauty of this majestic mountain. Situated just 10 minutes from the Kinabalu Park is the Walai Tokou Homestay. During a holiday in Sabah, visitors can also make a trip to the Miso Walai Homestay, to enjoy outdoor activities such as birdwatching, forest walks and even a visit to an ancient burial site.

 

The neighbouring state of Sarawak is another paradise for eco-adventures with ancient caves, jungle-clad mountains, rivers and national parks. A homestay experience here gives an opportunity to appreciate nature while enjoying the cultures of the ethnic communities. Visitors can savour the interesting experience of living in a traditional Bidayuh longhouse at Darul Islam Homestay (the only Muslim Bidayuh homestay) or visit the Kampung Benuk Homestay. Trek into the rainforest from these villages to view the small animals and a wide assemblage of plants. The Santubong peninsula, situated about 35 minutes drive from Sarawak?s capital city of Kuching, is the site of many attractions. Visitors to the Santubong Homestay will get a chance to go on a river cruise to watch the rare Irrawaddy dolphins. Aside from watching the marine life and coastal mangrove inhabitants, river cruises are a marvellous way to take in the dense foliage and breathtaking vistas of Malaysia?s hinterland.

 
 

 

From the Renok Baru Homestay village in Kelantan, visitors can arrange a boating trip along the Nenggiri River. Traverse riverine homes, aboriginal settlements and pre-historic caves along the way. In the same state, Bukit Jering Homestay lies close to natural attractions such as the Stong State Park and Jelawang Waterfalls. From the Pasir Raja Homestay in Terengganu, visitors can trek to view the spectacular Cemerong Waterfalls. Nestled in a 130-million year old jungle, the Cemerong Waterfalls has four cascading rapids, the highest of which falls 600 m. The D?Ketapang Homestay in the same state provides squid jigging trips (at certain times of the year) as well as visits to Pulau Duyong, the centre for Malaysia?s traditional boat building. For the extraordinary experience of bathing elephants, visitors can head to the Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Centre in Pahang.

 

It is not too far from the Desa Murni Homestay. Equestrian activities enjoy a good following in Malaysia. Visitors to the Kampung Ujong Bukit Homestay in Perlis can plan a trip to the nearby Perlis Equestrian Training Centre for an unforgettable adventure with horses. After an exciting time at the rainforest, how about a therapeutic, relaxing trip to a natural hot spring? Visitors to the Sungai Klah Homestay in Perak can enjoy this and much more. The Klah Hot Springs Recreational Park is situated near to this homestay village. Further away, the Sungkai Wildlife Reserve is the place to spot animals in their natural habitat. Visitors can also trek to a waterfall and watch the sewang dance presented by the indigenous people. In Kedah, lies another natural hot springs called Ulu Legong. Trips to the hot springs can be arranged from the nearby Ulu Legong KEDA Homestay. Many more exciting outdoor activities await nature enthusiasts. Make the jungle your playground to discover the variety of tropical plants and animals.
