You may remember me writing about my adventure in Gopeng last year. Yes, Perak is huge and offers tourists many different vacations. Those who love nature adventures usually head to Gopeng.

Well, Gopeng now has another provider of adventure holidays: Razila Adventure & Resort. Also known as Kuala Razila Adventure Resort Riverside, it is located in Ulu Geroh at the foot of Titiwangsa main range, 7km from Gopeng town.

This adventure resort, with chalets along the bank of Sungai Kampar (Kampar River), offers some of the best nature challenges for those seeking such thrills while on holiday.

A group of media members and guests were hosted at Razila Adventure & Resort some weeks ago for a 2D/1N adventure. In this event that was organised by Kelab Sukan dan Kebajikan Media Perak (KSKMP), the first activity that participants indulged in was to trek up Bukit Batu Putih, a well known spot to witness the most glorious of sunsets. It wasn’t too tough, as it took merely 30 minutes to reach its peak.

The following morning, after a night’s rest in a traditional chalet by Sungai Kampar, the delegates had water adventures waiting for them: white water rafting and waterfall abseiling. Sounds extreme? You bet!

While I have been on a few white water rafting trips, waterfall abseiling is new to me. The waterfall, Ulu Geruntum, has a height of 20 metres. It takes an enthusiast much effort to climb up to the starting point.

Abseiling was no easier as the surface of the rock wall, with continuous water washing down, was slippery. Still, this didn’t stop the youngest delegate, at only ten years old, to overcome her fear and conquer Ulu Geruntum!

By the way, participants of white water rafting are shuttled to the river (Sungai Kampar) by lorry. For many city folk, that in itself is an adventure! White water rafting is one of the most popular adventure activities in Gopeng. Other sports offered by Razila, which was established in 2012, are camping and water tubing, just to name a couple of them.
