Day: Saturday & Sunday
Duration: 2 days & 1 night
Venue: Kenong Rimba Park, Kuala Lipis, Pahang
Participants: ORA and Kay Adventures

This was my 1st time riding a 4x4wd off road. It was one great experience I'll cherish. It would be better if I had the chance to be behind the steering wheels. The journey started around 9am (even though in the tentative we should of departed at 8am) from ORA office. There were more than 8 4wheel drive.

We stopped for tea at a restaurant near Kem Tentera

Finally we arrived the Rimba Kenong Park around 5pm. It was an adventurous journey.

The Park had all the basic facilities such as surau, toilets, etc. There are also a few chalets but it looks a bit ruined.

After bringing all our belongings to the camp site, we set the camp and made dinner. We ate around 8pm, blew some birthday candles, did an ice breaking session which was fun knowing and making new friends at the same time. After the ice breaking session, everyone is tired so everyone got ready for bed. I slept around 12am.

 The next morning, after breakfast we assemble for abseiling briefing. We were divided into 2 groups. A group doing abseiling first then caving. I was in the group that did caving first, then abseiling.

Guides giving us information on abseiling

It was worth it. The caving was great. It was an interesting experience....
