Mount Ophir Climb, Malacca Discovery & Indoor Go-Kart Racing / paintball Adventure! Capture the splendour of raw mountain adventures on legendary Gunung Ledang. Trek up the magical jungle-capped mountain. Cool off in the rushing waters of Puteri Falls. Discover a world alive with the wonders of nature at her finest. Climb Mt. Ophir ɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵ Mount Ophir is situated in Gunung Ledang National Park, and is the highest peak in the State of Johor, rising to a height of 4,210 feet, which experienced hikers will know is a good height for a day hike, offering the perfect mix of challenge, accessibility for more leisure hikers, and stunning views. At the summit, you are treated to a 360 panoramic view of the surrounding verdant forests, the Straits of Malacca, and on a clear day, even the Sumatran coastline. It takes 3 to 4 hours for a reasonably fit person to reach the summit. A smooth, gentle gradient with many rest points leads to vertical slopes, giant boulders, and caves that we will overcome through the installed ladders and ropes, presenting an interesting challenge, and of course lots of epic photo opportunities. Past these vertical obstacles waits the summit with ample room and different angles for the perfect summit shot. Discover Malacca ɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵ After summiting Mount Ophir, we will be rewarded with an enchanting evening in the historical Peranakan city of Malacca, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where we can see many Dutch and Portuguese colonial buildings dating back to the 1500s. Explore Jonker Street ɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵ We will then explore Jonker Street free-and-easy. Every weekend evening, Malacca’s most famous street transforms into an incredible market, and that is when we will be there. Jonker Street is just a few minutes walk from chill bars along the Malacca River and Hard Rock Cafe, interspersed with local stalls selling interesting souvenirs and antiques. After a charming walk through the market, you can have supper at the authentic street-side desserts and eateries offering famous eats like chicken rice balls, durian chendol, assam laksa, and more. Then it is time to head back to rest and relax at our colourful homestay hotel, conveniently located on Jonker Street. We can buy back some beers and drinks and hang out at the lookout terrace. Speed / shooting Adventure ɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵɵ Our 2nd day will be as exciting as the first, with our racing adventure. We will bring you to the only Indoor Go Kart & Paintball in Melaka city center. Now you don’t have to worry about rain pour or hot sun to experience the thrill of speeding! You get to enjoy without worry of rain or hot sun - as you're inside a shopping plaza. We know not everyone like Go Kart or Paintball - we let you decide. You pay whatever you chose. Or you can go shopping or get a massage to reward yourself for the tough climb you just did :) Itinerary: 22 Sept Saturday 1200 am - Gather at Marsiling MRT station 0530 am - Breakfast & pack own lunch 0700 am - Reach Park Office and complete park admin 0845 am - Start hike 0130 pm - Lunch at summit 0200 pm - Descend 0545 pm - Depart for Malacca.

Mt Ophir is a tough 9-11 hours return hike on steep slopes with some scrambling needed towards the summit. Participants need to be of good fitness level and preferably with previous mountain hiking experience (e.g. Mt Lambak, Mt Panti). Please do not underestimate the difficulty. Is there a cut-off time to reach the summit? Your mountain guide will monitor your climbing progress/ pace and update you periodically on how far you are from the summit. The cutoff time to reach the summit is usually 2pm; the guide will assess your progress and make the call to turn back if you are unable to reach the summit by 2pm or generally, CP5 by 12pm. We advise all trekkers to listen to the guide’s advice in order to avoid the risk of having to trek down in the dark (after the sun goes down). *** Travel Insurance : highly recommended HOW TO SECURE YOUR SLOT : CLICK HERE -------------------------------------------------- Organized jointly with Rockerfellas Adventure Pte Ltd STB Travel Agents’ License No. 02861 --------------------- DISCLAIMER ------------------- Singapore Adventurous Nature-Lovers Meetup is an amateur adventure platform that welcomes all outdoor adventure seekers.
