With an Xtreme tailored package , and with Wira Adventure Consultant’s sponsorship of 6 TV crews, 14 participant members from Fun Travel Magazine, explored the heart of Gua Damai for 12 hours. (Gua Damai Exploration/ Intro of Rock Climbing)
Gua Damai was choosen as the place of activity despite the lack of knowledge about the activities here. Though the 20 strong group came from different places and vocation, that, did not stop them from working as a grade A team. After doing the 2 hours of Rock Climbing session, and climbing 6 different routes with various grading, they moved on to trekking, pass the White Wall (Rock Climbing site) and across Death Valley (Lembah Maut) towards Zipline station.
Everyone is equipped with face masks and protector. The team was made into 2 groups and they are ready to "Make War"…. bang…bang….bang…! The paintball activity of 1 hour session, were enjoyed in a special barricaded “War Zone”. The rain drizzle added a challenging fun to the ‘war’.
After grabbing a pack lunch with a bottle of mineral water, the participants trekked up to Chili Padi cave for spelunking, 60M deep in the chamber. Descending is hard for the first timers. It took them more hours although there are two rappel lines provided. A surprise awaits the cameraman as he was presented with a lighted cake and ”HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO U" song. Congratulations to Mr. Cameramen, you are the first to celebrate a birthday in the cave here.
With limited vision as it was already night, trekking was slow till they exited the “Big Tree Cave” . A few more guides awaited them to show them out to Gua Damai's staircase.
CONGRATULATIONS to all of you, you guys have done well.
