|This is how we were before the trekking starts|
What do you do, when something exceeds your expectation? Well, you would enjoy it, of course!
That was what the 18 teachers from "Pusat Kokurikulum Kuala Lumpur" did. In what they thought was just a normal routine jungle trekking turned out to be really extreme for them.
At 0930HR, the group had a short briefing, given by Mustapha. Next, they lined up the stairs for an abseiling technique refresher. 3 participants from a popular local TV station tagged along. During the jungle trekking, the group was then briefed by Nor Azarul Azwan about the herbal plants along the trek to Gua Anjing. The trekking ended with an exhilarating glide on the 250M Zip Line. It literally took their breath away.
|Had lunch and now resting|
Some of the group members took 40 winks and some took a good rest to stretch out after the adventurous jungle trekking.
Next, they proceeded to Educational Caving in "Ichibawa Cave" . Here, they got to know about the speleothems (cave formation), which is a secondary mineral deposit. Speleothems are typically formed in limestone or dolostone solutional caves.
The teachers experienced walking in darkness, lighted only with a candle stick.
|This is Bob, doing the pothole|
According to a few of the participants, spelunking is their most challenging and extreme activity.15 minutes of a quick climb to the peak, they were then standing on the steel platform on top of "Chili Padi Cave" . 60M deep to the chamber, the group then potholed cautiously using the 2 lines installed.
Being the rainy session, the group could not escape from being drenched with heavy rain water. However, that did not deter them from carrying on albeit the shivering cold. The rain kept pouring, as they say farewell to Gua Damai at 1800HRS.
Thank you for choosing Gua Damai as your extreme activity venue. We hope you will come again.
Thank you too, to all WAC and Gerakan Belia 4B crew for the great job. To TV9, we hope you had a successful shoot.
