Co budeš dělat

**This experience adds 1 more day to our overnight experience to the same village >> airbnb.com/adventurewithadi

We’ll drive 3 hours from Kuala Lumpur to a traditional Semai village, where we’ll stay in huts built by our native friends.

Guided by some local experts, we'll learn to weave accessories used for the Semai’s spiritual dances, practice shooting the traditional Semai hunting blowpipe and swim in a nearby river, just like the local do. Our meals will be a feast of indigenous dishes to be had in one of their homes.

On day two, we'll start early to hike into the deeper parts of the forests, using logging roads to get to a waterfall so secluded that even some of the villagers haven't been to. We'll spend half a day here swimming and eating our packed lunch surrounded by an almost untouched piece of the forests. During the night, we'll do a short night walk around the outskirts of the village.

Day three, we’ll hike one to two hours into the rainforest to search for the rafflesia flower, one of the largest on earth.

I first visited the village in late 2016 to meet with one of the leaders of their Eco-tourism initiative, which happens to be the tribe name of the natives here, the SEMAI people.

From personal experience and alike most of the indigenous people in Peninsular Malaysia, they are naturally shy people. But as we kept the friendship and built trust through a few concerted efforts of organizing trips here, they have slowly embraced us like family.

Our Semai friends have helped us achieve our goal of INSPIRING others to travel and adventure while EMPOWERING the local communities we work with!

I'm also co-organize this with Jennyfer, who comes from an even smaller native tribe originating from Borneo, the Kenyah people.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. I really felt immersed in the native culture and found myself in complete awe of the natural environment and stunning beauty. The highlights for me were the simplest experiences. Fabulous fresh, home cooked meals in the village and a daily swim in the nearby river. The cabins were simple and comfortable. I was traveling alone and the only guest on the trip so I had a cabin to myself. The downside was at night. Having to make a dash about 10m (maybe more), across the yard, in the pitch dark, on the edge of the jungle, to use the toilet at night was far outside my comfort zone. There is no electricity anywhere in the visitors area of the village so be sure to bring a power pack with you. And a flash light is a must!

A truly unique and close-to-nature experience. Adi and Jennyfer stayed with us throughout the trip, from pick-up to drop-off in KL. They were very professional, yet friendly, and guided us through all the activities and interactions with the villagers. The bamboo/palm tree hut we stayed in was very clean, and there were surprisingly few mosquitos around! The toilet (also doubled as cold water bucked shower) across the lawn from the hut was also convenient and clean. There was always lots of food (mostly local food, both healthy and tasty) and multiple dishes at each meal. Highlights of the trip included the spontaneous durians, hike to a upstream waterfall to swim and picnic, seeing the local kids play football and play with the dog, all the delicious food and exotic vegetables, feeding the chickens with leftovers before washing-up, and trekking to find a raffelsia flower. The villagers were very kind and generous, and they made us feel very welcome, despite the language barrier (they speak Semai and Malay). The trip was also very educational, and we learned about how the Semai people live, plants and animals in the jungle, and the impact of deforestation. There were many leeches on the jungle hike, but the leech socks that Adi and Jennyfer kindly lent us helped a lot, so I'd recommend either buying your own leech socks, or check if there are any for your to borrow. The villagers also lent us their rubber shoes which make the jungle hike less slippery.

Adi and Jennyfer were amazing hosts and they knew the place and the people there very well. They genuinely cared about the locals and also made us guests feel very comfortable. What I loved most was how Adi and Jennyfer connected so effortlessly with us and were very open to sharing all kinds of personal stories. We all really bonded together. We also made good friends with the local orang asli. Henry, Andy and Ihsan were excellent guides during the hikes and were very helpful in pointing out unique insects and plants along the way and also ensured us safe passage. The hike to the waterfall was exciting and the trip was worth every drop of sweat and blood (leeches suck blood but just wear skin tight long sleeves and pants and you're good). The waterfall was an absolutely refreshing dip. Very Instagram worthy for those who like to take pictures. The food we had throughout was delicious. We had a taste of what the local orang asli normally ate and the meats and vegetables they had were fresh. OH. AND DURIAN. We were blessed to have durian every night. (If you love durian, the durian here is pure and creamy and delicious!) Overall, it was a trip I'll never forget, especially with new friendships forged with Adi and Jennyfer. I would highly recommend this trip to my friends and to people who enjoy nature, great food and amazing company. :)

Adi and Jennyfer were thoughtful, sensitive and transient warm and engaging hosts. They were obviously people with a continuing relationship with the Semai community that they work with and this was important for us in a provider for sustainability reasons (We did not want apoverty porn experience). They knew broadly about the ecology and challenges facing the Semai people and some of their history, and had thought seriously about how to build a business model that benefited both parties. The hikes were stunning, with sufficient challenge and also interest in terms of flora and geography. The food was fabulous!. A very worthwhile experience. Thank you Adi and Jennyfer! We wish you all the best and hope to return!

Adi and Jennifer were wonderful hosts and guides, and were very approachable and caring. They provided us with the means to connect with the Semai people which would otherwise have not been possible. They are genuine friends of the Semai folks and are like family with them. We wish them the very best in their mission and goals and hope to see them again :)

Me and 3 other friends between 30 - 50 years old went on this amazing outing and had a very unique and enriching experience. Our experience organisers - Adi and Jennyfer, are very passioned about increasing the awareness of the local ecology and appreciating the culture and lifestyles of the Orang Asli.  Adi and Jennyferwere very accommodating on the pick-up and drop off locations (Ipoh instead of KL), and originated and introduced us to the village in a systematic way. The village is idyllic and connected to the environment - streams run through it, you'll see chickens and monitor lizards etc, and the water comes from the river. We were made to feel welcomed and were accommodated with all our needs by the village. We were very lucky to arrive just as the village is preparing for a big celebration at Christmas, and at the start of the durian session -  the villagers were kind enough to share some of their finds with us, and I swear the quality of durian more than covers the cost of our tour. It is necessary to share that this is a real village with actual families staying in wooden huts - working and raising their kids. The villagers go about their daily tasks - hunting, planting, harvesting and foraging. A lot of the interactions are unplanned and spontaneous, which makes it possible to have genuine experiences. I had such a moment on my first night in the village, when we decided to have a night swim in the nearby cascading river. A group of children were also there and we had a roaring water fight in the evening twilight, surrounded by fireflies. During our stay, the village had a few successful hunts and we were able to sample some of the local delicacies, and we managed to track down the elusive Rafflesia (just one). These are some of the authentic experiences that, while unpredictable, makes this a memorable event. There are certainly ethical concerns when participating in "Indigenous-tourism" and "Eco-tourism". I am concerned about how to experience these places respectfully, in a way that doesn’t appropriate from native people or risks spoiling a region’s ecosystem. All in all, I find the tour to be well-managed in both these regards. It supports the basic rights of local communities while contributing to their economies, and it fosters respect for local cultures and a commitment to educating tourists on those cultures. The main components of the tour are the natural environment and bio-diversity. It is always a challenge to balance sustainability with tours, as too many people exploring a particular ecosystem might disturb the organisms that are living there, and some tourists might unsustainably take things for souvenirs, trample on plants etc. I think the tour manages these risk by keeping the group small and make it a point to stick to dedicated paths. Adi and Jennyfer also use this chance to educate the visitors on the on-going threats of logging and dam constructions. Along the way, we observed for ourselves how logging and palm trees change the forest eco-system and landscape. We also saw how the sand dumped by the construction company into the river washes downstream. Sadly the forest land which is culturally, and economically vital to the village is not a reserve and are constantly being threatened by constructions and projects - currently the biggest of which is a dam. I believe Adi and Jennyfer deeply respect the cultural practices and traditions of the indigenous people and are careful not to transform them into "performances" for popular consumption. In a way, they are helping the local communities take greater ownership, economic independence and political power.   In order to manage your expectation, I'll point out some considerations you should be aware of: 1.) Weather is king. A lot of activities can't be done in bad weather and some sites (rivers) can become dangerous. No one can guarantee you will be able to do everything you want to do. 2) Bring along all your toiletries and medicines. 3.) You will be showering in cold water. 4.) Animals are a part of the forest eco-system. Including leeches. 5.) You are expected to keep your environment clean and wash up after meals. 6.) You need moderate fitness to enjoy all the hiking activities. You will be going across the river several times, so bring shoes that can get wet and doesn't slip on rocks. In summary,  we thoroughly enjoyed this trip and strongly recommend it. It is suitable for anyone from an independent child to an active senior. From our conversations and interactions with the local villagers, we learned a lot about their work and their wealth of knowledge and skills in the way of the forest. It is a cultural exchange across national, ethnic, language and religious boundaries. A special shout out to the cook who cooked all our meals - it is simply fantastic. (Also, we advise you to tip your guides)
