Kem Herba Sungai Congkak Hulu Langat

1. a short trek up to Kem Herba

Known as “Herb Camp” in English, Kem Herba in Sungai Congkak, Hulu Langat, Selangor is actually part of a recreational camp.

3. Kem Herba Sungai Congkak, Hulu Langat

My friends and I, unfortunately, did not have the time to dip ourselves in the cool stream as the main reason we were there was to attend a lecture on herbs by Dr. Mohd. Noor Shamsuddin, the owner of the camp.

5. this is the Baba Balun Nyonya flower, which is white in the morning and turns red in the evening

Our lecturer is a no-nonsense man who treated us like school children; shouting at us and banging at the table to get our attention.

7. miracle fruit

And I am glad for that as otherwise, I wouldn’t have learnt so much about the plants that are all around us and their usefulness.

8. leaving Kem Herba after gaining new knowledge

I wished that we had spent a longer morning there at Kem Herba as there is just so much to learn! I highly recommend schools to make field trips to Kem Herba for students during school holidays.
