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.
