Closer to Nature in Belum Rainforest Resort

I’ll be damned if my son turns out to be a geeky child who does not appreciate nature. Unlike most parents who aims to push their children to excel academically, I aim to let my son experience the world as much as possible. So I made it a point to give him as much hands ons on his environment as possible. Last school holiday has been remarkable for us. Unlike before, we spent our holidays exploring Malaysia. If you wanna know what I’m talking about, kindly read my posts on Genting, Bentong and our trip up in Northern Malaysia.

Eco-tourism is something pretty much foreign to me. The efforts made by Tourism Malaysia to introduce such thing is indeed something that needs to be praised. 😀 Temenggor is the ideal destination to attract travelers to eco-tourism.

Night scene. We were given a chance to participate as Green Ranger in the Belum Rainforest Resort . The program began in May 2013. The program was 3 days 2 nights stay worth RM400 . There are five chalet and dorm that could accommodate 50 people . During our stay, we learned about various stuff that’s definitely not in the textbooks. If you want to be closer to nature, this is the place you should go.Green Ranger program offers an all- new experience- seeing wildlife habitat and wild plants which have never been seen before. The travelers may choose some interesting packages to explore the place.

    Oh I’ve been here once before too! 🙂

    It was on a drive trip, I believe, and the service was top notch. It’s really a gem hidden in the middle of nowhere, I would love to go again.

    Happy New Year to you and yours Eli!
