Gunung Belumut

Cost:$75 for SAC members Register By:5 Aug 2017
Grading [?]: Group Size:10 or 20
Leader:Uncle George / email at Registration:Please enter this Registration Form
Remarks:Cost includes 2 way-transport, one dinner after trek in Kluang, trekking permit and guide.

Some people consider Gunung Belumut short and sharp, which means that compared to other mountains of similar heights like Mt Ophir, the trek to the summit is shorter but steeper. It is not an easy trek. In fact it can be quite physically demanding at certain parts, in particular one very long upslope about 45min after start point and another one during the last third of the trek. It is therefore strongly advised that you do lots of staircase training in preparation for this trek. It takes about 3 to 4 hrs (depending on your trekking-fitness level) to reach the summit from the base and about 4 to 5 hrs to return to base. So during the whole trek, you should pace yourself properly, remember not to walk too fast at the beginning. Since there is no water-point during the trek, do carry at least 2 litres of drinking water with you.

Remarks: Early departure, check in Wednesday night, 2 Aug by 2245 hours.

One of the “Seven New Wonders of the World”, also known as The World Cup of Wildlife. It’s possible to experience this real-life phenomenon by being there, no longer through the goggle box in our home on animal documentary….and yes, we are talking about Africa. The Wildebeest Migration!

Masai Mara is most famous for the spectacular annual migration of over a million wildebeest, zebra, gazelle etc from the Serengeti in northern Tanzania crossing the Mara River into Kenya in search of fresh feeding grounds, which takes place in July/August. During this crossing, hundreds of animals are swept away by the first moving Mara River and others are killed by the ferocious African Crocodiles. This crossing gives true meaning to the phrase “Survival of the fittest”. Been warranted by travelers that the wildebeest river crossing viewings are not guaranteed, hence I asked the guide: “how good are the chances of catching the migration and river crossing?” The answer: “70 - 80% BECAUSE THIS IS NATURE”!

How about taking to the skies for the ultimate Masai Mara wildlife adventure, soaring in a hot air balloon over herds of game to the inner reaches of the Mara for the flight of a lifetime! You will be over the most inaccessible and undisturbed parts of the Mara, with only the intermittent whisper of the balloon’s gas burners punctuating the silence of your majestic flight with a fantastic 360-degree bird’s-eye view as one of the most dramatic scenes in nature unfolds beneath you!

Finally, for something less intense, visit to Lake Bogoria for a Central Kenya Safari to view the hot springs and geysers and the thousands of Flamingo. What a treat for nature lover, animal lover, bird watcher and photographer hoping to catch the best shot of their life!

Cost:USD 2100/pax for SAC member Register By:ASAP
Grading [?]: Group Size:minimum 6 pax
Leader:Dawn Lim Email / / 97719515
Remarks: Kili is really not tough for one with average fitness But AMS for this climb is really something to be reckon with. However, those who have no camping experience or poor camping adaptability will find this trip tough.

Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m above sea level) is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world (free-standing means it is not part of a mountain range). It is also one of the Seven Summits (tallest mountain on each of the seven continents).

Crowned with ice at the summit, the glaciers have been existing here for more than 11,000 years despite its close proximity to the equator. Scientists estimate that global warming has taken a toll on this crown with ice vaporizing at an alarming rate; the ice cap might be completely gone by 2050. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers. So wait no more, do this trek sooner, you don’t want to miss the glaciers!

Machame, hails to be a very scenic route. We’ll be approaching from the southwest and descends using Mweka, rewarding climbers with views of the expansive Shira Plateau, an optional scramble up Lava Tower, a climb up the Great Barranco Wall, and a traverse underneath Kilimanjaro's Southern Ice field. The descent occurs on the Mweka route. Climbers sleep in supplied tents at designated campsites, and eat meals either outdoors or inside a large dining tent. Staff prepares all meals and sets up the tents.

Gunung Angsi Trek

Read More
Cost:$110 for SAC members Register By: ASAP, before 9 July
Grading [?]: Group Size:20
Leader: George Seet / email at : Registration:Please enter this Registration Form
Remarks:Cost includes transport, trekking permit, compulsory local trekking guide and early dinner in Msia. Late night departure on 21Jul Sat night 11:30pm..

This is a moderately challenging trek : suitable for those who have done some light trekking trails in Malaysia, and looking for new trail challenges.

Gunung Angsi is located in Ulu Bendol recreational forest on the outskirts of Seremban, the capital of Negri Sembilan. At a height of about 825m, the climb is quite straightforward and the trail well defined and clear. After an initially deceptive flat beginning, the ascent becomes steeper with a ridgeline leading up all the way to the summit. Closer to the summit, there are gullies which provide some challenges to the trekkers. It takes about average 3 hours of trekking uphill before reaching the summit, and 2 hours to return to the the same trail head.

We will depart late Friday night, reach base early morning, and climb the Saturday morning after breakfast.

A local dinner in Malaysia is included before returning to Singapore.

For many, the lofty mountains and sheer riverine valleys of northern Laos sum up the dreamy and exotic nature of the entire country. Situated on a promontory of the Mekong River, Luang Prabang is by far the crown jewel of northern Laos. The former royal capital and UNESCO World Heritage Centre remains one of the most charming and romantic cities in all of Asia. We may include the well-trodden “Banana Pancake Trail”, which includes infamous Vang Vieng, and stay 1-2 day in the capital city Vientiane.

We may choose to cross the border at Chiang Khong, Thailand/Huay Xai, Laos via the Friendship Bridge. Huay Xai is home to the memorable Gibbon Experience, a once-in-a-lifetime zip-lining trip that will have you soaring above jungle canopy and sleeping in tree houses and then hop onto the slow boat for a two-day journey down the Mekong (with a pitstop in Pak Beng) to Luang Prabang.

The fun outdoor activities in the Nam Ha National Protected Area and hill tribe trekking could easily keep you entertained. Our bus will take us to regional hub Udomxai to Phongsali and the unknown the pastoral paradise Muang La Nong Kiaow and Muang Ngoi boast a gorgeous backdrop of imposing limestone mountains and picturesque views of the Nam Ou River.

Visit the caves in Vieng Xai, the headquarters of the Pathet Lao and where 20,000 people survived in a hidden cave city. Sam Neua is famed for its exquisite weaving and textiles. Phonsavan is home to the mysterious megalithic Plain of Jars before heading home via Thailand or Vietnam.

There are some ropework climbing at this stretch to the summit. We will eat lunch (self-packed) while enjoying the view from the summit. After that we will begin our descend from another trail, by-passing the rockface area, and go down from the same Lagenda Trail. Hence the entire journey is estimated 8-10 hours for a person with average fitness to complete.

We target to return to base by 6pm to clean up and have our restaurant dinner in a "kampung" neighbourhood nearby. We will spend our night in the dorms at the foot of the Mountain.

On Sunday morning, after breakfast (at own expense) in the kampung, we will head back to Singapore.
