5 Spots in Malaysia for the Adventure Addict!

If you think that adventure is dangerous, think twice about routine. It’s lethal! So here are a few “dangerous” activities that you could try in the exotic and gorgeous Malaysia, and save yourself from a deadly routine!

1) Climb the Tallest Mountain in South East Asia
Mount Kinabalu, in Sabah, stands tall at an impressive 4095 meters! If a long hike, through lush green Malay rainforests excites you, this is the perfect adventure for you. What’s best, is that the climb is fairly easy and the view more than makes up for the climb. The best part of this hike? Waking up at 3 am to climb the peak in the chilly morning breeze to view the most spectacular sunrise of your life!

 2) Meet Wild Orangutans
The wild orangutan is a rare species that can only be seen in two places in the world, Borneo being one of them. The Sepilok’s Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre is a place where you can see these adorable creatures eat, play and relax in their own natural habitat. What’s great is that the centre also nurses these injured or orphaned animals, and provides a safe haven to them.

3) Live with the Penan Tribe
Are you bored of trailing through a concrete jungle? Then spending a day with nomads of the Penan tribe is just what you need. You can literally explore new places in Sarawak that haven’t even been logged yet! You can get up-close and personal with nature, by exploring the various lakes, caves and waterfalls in the region. What’s really interesting about the tribe is that they have 40 words for Sago Palm (a tree species), but not even a single word for “Goodbye”, “Thank You” or “Thief”! Now isn’t that endearing?

4) Dive in Sipadan Island

Amongst one of the best and highly recommended “dive-sites” in the world, Sipadan Island offers you a chance to spot turtles, hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and a lot of other rare aquatic wildlife creatures. And if crowds turn you off, this is great news for you: only 120 passes are issued each day! This means that you can have a nice fun-filled day at the Sipadan Island without having to worry about getting lost in a sea of humans!

5) Free-fall at Tekah Airstrip in Taiking
Experience the thrill of your life by skydiving at the Tekah Airstrip in Taiking, almost 3 hours from Kuala Lumpur. Feel the adrenaline rush through your body as you descend at the speed of 190kph/118 mph, taking in breathtaking views that will be with you for the rest of your life. 

So pack your backs, and get ready to break away from the routine. Why? Because Malaysia is calling!
