29/4/12 (1D) Let’s Hike & Snorkel on a “Untouched” Paradise this Sunday

One of a “untouched” paradise HIDDEN in the southern part of Malaysia. Come join me for a Guaranteed fruitful Adventure this Sunday. Our purpose is to trek to a waterfall that is seen by less than 300 people so far, have fun and enjoy the serenity its provides and then to immerse ourselves in the clear turquoise water where we will snorkel our time away. Beautiful hard and soft corals can be seen there. Of course fishes are happily swimming there too. 

My plan:

1) Private Coach ride to Jetty Point 

2) Board Private Speed Boat to offshore island

3) An hour plus speed boat ride to Tinggi Waterfall 

4) Hike to waterfall – splash splash splash

5) Snorkel at the Crystal Clear Marine Park

During the hike we focus very much on group dynamics, and it’s a rule of thumb that nobody will be left behind. We’re all links in the hiking chain and nobody is more or less important than anybody else… For every hike, i will be the last one to leave the venue in order to be sure that everybody made it out safely. Creating an adventurous but most of all a safe hiking experience is our goal.
