Eat the most amazing Malay food with a local family who invites you to join them for a traditional Malay Dinner. Discover the beauty of nature whilst hiking to keep poachers at a distance and therefore protects the existing wildlife. Search for pugmarks and signs of wildlife


Day 1:Arrival, Briefing & Malay Dinner

Arrive at Merapoh or Ipoh Bus Station to be picked up by our team members. After you have settled in at your accommodation you will be briefed about the upcoming activities. Tomorrow will be a busy day, so after a delicious traditional Malay Dinner with a local family, you can rest and have a good night sleep.

Day 2:Poacher Surveillance patrol & Departure

The rainforest is waiting for you, so today you will do a big 5 hour trek, guided by a guide. The tribal people are the aboriginal people of the Malay Peninsular or “Orang asli” meaning original people in Malay language. Although living in villages for the last decade, they are still very much a hunting and gathering people and can spend up to one month in the rainforest when t the hot season. having their concrete houses are too hot.  You will learn from our team not only about the animals and plants of the rainforest but also about these amazing people who still call the forests their home.

Your presence in the jungle will keep poachers at a distance. While the Batek show you the way, don’t forget to look down and search for pugmarks of wild boars, tapirs, Sun bears or even an elephant or tiger.

Back at the Fuze Ecoteer house you can wash the mud off your feet, take a shower and rest. Tired but satisfied the team will bring you back to the bus station and send you off.
