Located at Gerik, Perak, Belum Rainforest Resort is the perfect choice for a staycation to reconnect with your loved ones and the nature. But apart from staying in the hotel room, there are actually a lot of activities that you can take part in and get closer to nature. These activities can also take your mind off work so you can recharge better.

Top 5 Activities at Belum Rainforest Resort

  1. Visit the Aboriginal Village (Kampung Orang Asli)

    Chuweh is an orang asli village that was fairly new. It was better for them as a whole to relocate to a cleaner place with better living conditions. I feel that the condition was really good and the scenery was just like heaven! I definitely wouldn’t mind staying here.

    You can see how they’re living their lives. They’re treating their livestock like pets while living a peaceful life.

    The one-hour journey certainly wasn’t easy due to the steep hill but the guides were very helpful and waited for us. There were 2 guides; one at the front and one at the back so nobody gets left behind.

    When we were nearly reaching the lookout tower, we had to use the string and pull ourselves up!

    All the sweat and tiredness were all worth it when we saw the breathtaking view of Temenggor Lake and Banding Lake from 10.8 meters above ground. We were totally mesmerized by the wonders of nature.

  3. Night Trekking

    Come night, we explored the flora and faunas of the jungle armed with a torchlight on our hands. Since animals are more active at night, the experience will be different from day trekking.

    What makes night trekking adventurous is, there’s no certainty in what you’ll encounter during night trekking. We were advised to minimize noise in order not to scare off the animals.


    Remember to admire the beautiful patterns of spider webs. My photo definitely didn't do justice to it.

    Rattan trees a.k.a. rotan

    Have you seen rattan in real life? I mean the plant, not the one you get whipped with hahaha! This is the first time I saw it. Apparently, rattan has thorny spines to climb over other plants and to protect themselves from becoming animal’s food. Remember to be careful!

    Fun fact: They grow their own herbs so they can be freshly plucked and used during treatments. Interesting!
