My friends were curious how my family could have an enjoyable holiday at Bukit Kinding Resort, which is just 30 minutes’ drive from Ipoh. Actually, we wanted an eco-adventure holiday and Bukit Kinding Resort is home to the Bukit Kinding Eco Adventure Park.
Being city folks, it’s a rare opportunity for us to literally get down and dirty but we were all for it, for a change and to get out of our comfort zone.
Fuze Outdoor and Adventure Consultants, the company that manages the eco-adventure activities, drew up a programme for us during our stay there. Fuze O, as the company is known, specialises in tailored programmes to suit our needs. Whether a guest is a newbie, like me, or an extreme sports lover, Fuze O is able to come up with just the right adventure.
The most exhilarating activity here is the double zipline flying fox measuring 486 metres in length, and has been listed in the Malaysia Book of Records as longest in the country. I went for it, even though I admit that it took me quite a few hours to mentally prepare myself!
It is really scary looking down from the launching tower, at a height of about 20 stories, but once you have done it one time, you would want to go again! The less than 35 seconds ride to reach solid ground is insufficient to absorb the magnificent view. Besides, flying at different times of the day gives us a different feel.
