Apart from the Jungle Night Walk Tour, Han Rainforest Resort also offers Night Safari ride on a 4WD vehicle. However, we were utterly exhausted after the night walk and our little fishing trip, and so we opted for the daytime off-roading trip on the next day instead.
Our destination; the The Batek (Also spelled as Bateq) Indegenious Settlement in Kg. Dedari, Kuala Tahan.
It is about 1 hr drive away via the jungle route and here’s sharing the views throughout our trip to Kg. Dedari.
Our driver decided to take a slight detour and we passed by a highway under construction. We were told that the highway will directly connect to Kuala Tahan to Terengganu.
Not to say that I’m utterly impressed or fascinated with the view, but I have to say that I realized that we took plenty of things for granted.
One thing for example is that how much effort it took by the unsung heroes to build a safe road for us. We saw how hard people worked to make such thing possible for us. It is certainly humbling when you think that way, I must say.
Having enough of the construction scenery, we finally took off to Kg. Dedari.
Crossed the river for a little bit
And deep into the jungle we go
It wasn’t exactly a smooth drive, but if I were to compare our 4WD off-roading trip in Kalumpang, I’d say the ride is pretty much a breeze.
Just a little ‘carwash’ here and there, and some hindering branches and tree trunks. Nothing we can’t handle.
Our driver is a professional 4WD driver who is well versed in the route, after all. Mr. Rizal Belalang and team from 4×4 Extreme made sure that the journey was nothing short of enjoyable.
And before we know it, we arrived in Kg. Dedari to spend some time with the Batek Tribe. More about it in the next installment of my post for our eco-escapade to Taman Negara.
Our trip was sponsored by Han Travel/Han Rainforest Resort and MITA. Han Travel provides one of the best transportation and accommodation arrangement to Taman Negara, so look them up for fuss free experience in Taman Negara at an affordable price.
