This may be the first time she’s heard of Sungai Inki but ZALINA MOHD SOM has a real fun time at this recreational forest by the river
WE have a Sungai Inki? Yes, and it’s in Kalumpang, Hulu Selangor. To get there, drive out of the main Kuala Kubu-Tanjung Malim road and take a smaller road to Sungai Inki.
This beautiful, unspoiled recreational forest is just along the rocky Sungai Inki. Not only that, but there is also a self-contained resort for those who prefer not to rough it out in a camp.
The Kalumpang Resort has 16 chalets, some on the banks of the river. It also has dormitories and camping sites. Within its grounds are a cafeteria, gymnasium, seminar and dining halls, swimming pool and karaoke room.
But for those who prefer to pitch their tents in the wild, the recreational forest has a large camp site with basic facilities like rest areas and toilets.
Since it’s in the jungle, activities are jungle-based. You’ll have a whale of a time jungle trekking, river crossing, fishing and off-road. And if you’ve the necessary equipment, you can try flying fox and obstacle course activities.
However, the adventure starts the moment you enter the trunk road from the main Kuala Kubu-Tanjung Malim road, going through the quaint Kampung Pasir Putih before hitting orchards, rubber estate and dense shrubs.
Take the Tanjung Malim exit of the North South Highway and head down to Kuala Kubu. Drive for about 10 minutes after the toll plaza and turn to Kampung Pasir Putih. Then go straight to the end of the road.
Where To Eat
You can pack food but there are many restaurants and stalls along the main road as well as at the entrance to the kampung.
Where To Stay
Kalumpang Resort (call 05-551 09145 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.kalumpang.com.my) is the choice for assured comfort in the recreational forest. Those planning to camp out are advised to report at the Kalumpang Police Station.
