BOA Perak Eco-Adventure Trip


Up for a challenge of a lifetime? On Day 1, check in into Gopeng rainforest night and relax yourself while we entertain you with local foods and performance. Ice breaking is a must and we’ll prepare you with the trip schedule.

On Day 2, you’ll face the unexpected underground experience in the mystical – eerie – Kandu Cave and for a chance to shoot trough the rapids of Kampar River all in a day! Caving is perfect for you if  you’re scared of the dark, for what is a great outing if not to take you out of your comfort zone? Face your fears! By the end of the day you would have conquered your claustrophobia and achluophobia!

The clear water of Kampar River (Class I-III) is suitable for anyone who is physically fit and those who crave for mild technical adventure whilst safely enjoy a rafting trip.

On the river, you’ll have the thrills of tackling exciting rapids and floating down the clear water river amidst a lush rainforest. You will ride the continuous rapids graded from class I-III, and continue down river, passing by some old tin mining plains. Have fun during the rafting like do some body-rafting or even take a spin in the raft with your head in the water….or just get to the traditional fun of water fight with your fellow rafters! Get wet and get in touch with nature once more!

On Day 3, you will experience the best of nature, 130 million years rainforest. Setup your camp and we will guide you through insect bites, leeches and roar of tigers at night. If you think rainforest is so quiet, come experience the nature yourself! Its a jungle out there!! If on Day 1, you raft on rubber and glide through rapids, now you’ll have the experience of the natives, build your own bamboo raft (we will give you bamboos and ropes of course) and paddle it down to Orang Asli village for some traditional dance and blowpipe presentation. You can try it, but please don’t try it at home.

On Day 4, you’ll get closer to nature when we jungle trek to wild animal observation tower and if we are lucky, mouse deer, wild boar, or even tigers will come and sip from their salt lick while we watch on the hut quietly. Dip yourself into the cool and fresh waterfall of Ruok, where Kelah (mahseer) fish is breed and release to the lake. Its like going to fish spa, thousands of Kelah will surround you while you are in the water. Don’t think of Piranha, this Kelah fish don’t eat flesh. You then wil check out from Royal Belum and indulge yourself into nice bed of Banding Lakeside Inn and spent the night with fresh local BBQ by the swimming pool.

On Day 5, get yourself active again and release your stress by shooting paintballs, glide through our flying fox and rock climbing. if you think you are tough enough to experience this 5 days and 4 nights hectic eco-adventure activities, pack your bags and call us! All the trip schedule can be altered to fit you schedule and timing.

BOA Outdoor Trails: Gua Tempurung, Gopeng, Perak


About 25 km from Ipoh you can find the Gua Tempurung / Tempurung Caves. Just follow the old road from Simpang Pulai and Gopeng towards Kuala Lumpur, you will see the entrance to this caves on your left. Or drive 8km to the north from Kampar. There is no public transport to the caves so you need to come by your own transport or a taxi. Although the caves a bit away from Ipoh they are an absolute must to see. You will not regret your visit to the Gua Tempurung in the southern limestone mountains from Ipoh. The caves are some of the most beautiful caves in Malaysia.

The caves stretch out through the limestone mountains for about 2 km. There is an underground river system at the bottom of the cave and at some point visitors have to crawl through the water, keeping the heads down from one cave to another. The cave is full with stalactites and stalagmites which remember me my Geology 101 class back then in school. Creating 1 inch of them can take up to 200 years.

There’s something for everyone. If you feel you are not in for a long and deep walk in the caves, you can do a 40 minutes great walk (always with guide) through comfortable paths, see and feel the wind tunnel and enjoy the bright of the wide open caves.

Longer treks are possible. The longest trek takes about 3 hours but can only be done if the water level is low enough. Entrance ticket go from RM 6 to 22 (adults) and RM 2,50 to RM 11 (children) depending on the duration of the cave trek.
