THINGS TO DO IN GENTING HIGHLANDS : A VISIT TO ENGLISH GARDEN




There are many therapeutic activities to ease your mind at Genting Highlands. Its not just about gambling away your money or play some games at the theme park. You can pay a visit to English Garden to balance up your weekend getaway. I don't know this place exist until my recent trip to Genting.


After a short trekking into the Fashion Forest and lunch at Awana, we were led to take Sky Way up to visit English Garden.


Light rain and misty weather make view at English Garden so dramatic. I start to play my own drama in my head. Imagine wearing a nice hi tea dress and sit down under one a gazebo enjoying hot English tea with warm scone top with salted butter cream and strawberry jam. mmmmmm...so nice!!!! My drama go on a bit longer but we stop here to give way to my commercial. kakakaka


They even have maze nearby to play around and get lost. Don't worry even your kids can find their way out from this maze.

Here at English Garden you can enjoy variety types of Pitcher Plant. This is my first time see huge pitcher plant which is also part of conservation project of Treks. They even rescue pitcher plants from roadsides , hill slopes and pieces of land earmarked for development.DAEBAK!!!!!

That hardworking woman with yellow rain coat is one of the worker there. She was arranging the pitcher plant when we arrived. hahahahaha
They are rehabilitated and available for public viewing at the Treks Nepenthes Conservation and Display Wall at the English Garden near Theme Park Hotel or you can also visit Treks outlet in Awana Genting.

Love the idea of conservation the nature is part of mega development by Genting Highlands. Really, don't know that Pitcher Plant can be this colorful and beautiful too. New things for me. I am glad to join this trip. Bring your kids here to educate them with nature rather than a weekend at Shopping Complex walking  and fooling around.

For those who looking for some informative weekend activities , you can go ahead to Treks Nature Enterprise fb. They are more than happy to plan your short gateway up to Genting Highlands.

If you need some ideas on what kind of activities you can do in Genting Highlands. Please visit my other link which I share on my experience visit to Fashion Forest.

Visit me again on Monday for my story on how I get a chance to mingle around with reptilian and amphibian.

THINGS TO DO AT GENTING HIGHLANDS : VISIT TO 130 MILLIONTH YEARS OLD JUNGLE

For those who have been reading my blog know that I love natural trail.

Recently, I was invited by Resort Worlds Genting to experience the nature trail in Awana Jungle. I was so excited but was contemplating due to my knee condition. I was told to avoid any hiking or anything require uneven ground. mmmmmmm....Cindyrina is always a stubborn and self motivated woman. This woman accepted the challenge with walking stick in hand. WTH! Owhhhh!!! this old age sickness come so soon for me.


My perception about Genting Highlands activities is gaming, casino and honey moon. kekekeke...I thought we can't the lush old jungle surrounding the Genting Highlands. Trek Nature Enterprise lead by jungle passionate Mr Eddie Chan and his wife Pat Ang introduce the 130 millionth jungle in a different and creative way.


They name this beautiful untouched jungle as 'Fashion Forest'. The 'stars' and 'celebri-tree' are the flora and fauna in Genting Highlands.They are abundant, and well protected from human abuse.


This is Eddie who is passionate and energetic man.

These are some 'celebri-tree' in the jungle and you a re lucky if you can catch a glimpse of them. Gosh! I can't even peep even one. Haihhhh! disappointed mode!


For anti-leeches like yours truly.....spray as much 'Bygone' on your leg and apply tiger balm as much possible until your leg sting. hehehehehe...thats how I did it that day. The exploration begin....


A short 800 meters nature walk  into the Fashion Forest. Interesting about this trail is you can see bar code on some trees. You can scan the bar code and the introduction of trees species will pop up. Interesting right? Enjoy the nature and at the same time learn about it. This is fun and great activities with kids. I told you Genting Highlands is not about just gaming. 



Do you know this thing? 
This look like that 'ice age' fella most hunt item.
This call Acorn. Its type of nut from oak tree. This remind me of the acorn jelly.
mmmmm...yummy! feeling like squirrel now.


How about this beautiful orange color fruit?
Not sure what its name but was told this is hornbill bird favourite.


We walked further into the forest which is also home for ferns, bamboos, mosses and many type of rattan. The view was awesome and the discovery which I can describe to you as fabulous. You need to experience the nature yourself though!


Gosh! never come across my mind that I will witness this kind of gigantic ancient tree here in Malaysia. I visited this kind of tree at Siem Reap, Cambodia during my visit to 'Thomb Rider' movie site. That tree is super gigantic! You need to be here to witness this awesome jaw drop tree.


Here are some of flora and fauna along the way while doing this nature walk course here at Awana Genting.

Lovely view after raining during the walk.

Love the serene and refreshing view after rain. Love the smells too.

Finally, have lunch at Golf Terrace , Awana Genting at 3:30pm. isk isk isk...tired but exciting walk and can't wait for what is next plan by Trek Nature Enterprise later. Check out and like their FB here.

Do I find this trail is difficult?
Well, I walked with my walking stick and I love this trail so much minus that leeches that I saw along the trail. Thank God! it never climb up onto me because I was too poisonous for them. hehehehehe

Next post is my experience to English Garden. Wait up for my Friday post soon.
