Travel through Ulu Melaka on an ATV and get magnificent views of never-ending paddy fields and a beautiful waterfall, visit a traditional village and feed buffalo at a buffalo park!
Experience driving an ATV through Ulu Melaka on this adventure that will bring you down winding trails and past varying types of scenery that will put your mind at ease. You can choose to bring a partner along on the ride if you want someone to talk to about the sights, but even if you choose to drive alone, it is guaranteed that you will not be left bored. Expect to travel through bountiful greenery and wide, open areas that are refreshingly different from dull and congested cities.
Make sure to test out your vehicle before embarking on your journey so that you will know how much throttle is enough for you to find a speed you’re comfortable with. Once you’re all set and ready to go, gently accelerate and drive along in a line. This tour will take you down paths created by paddy farmers as they tended to their paddy fields. Drive leisurely down the trodden paths between the flat rectangles and squares of the paddy fields and admire their bright green uniformity. The open area of the paddy fields makes for a very tranquil atmosphere, with mountains creating a serene backdrop against the sky in the distance.
You will also travel through a traditional village where you can observe the friendliness of the local folks and their simple way of living. They live close to nature in harmony as they reap benefits from the land, and in return, they respect the land by cultivating it further. It is a cycle that ensures the longevity of the land which will allow its people to prosper. As you drive past a water reservoir, take a moment to marvel at its calm waters that reflect the sky overhead.
Rumble along through a rubber estate where tall, thin rubber trees grow at measured distances from one another. Malaysia is number three on the list of countries with the most area of rubber plantations, and these rubber plantations play a huge part in the history of Malaysia’s development. The diversity of Malaysia’s population can be partly attributed to rubber plantation and production in the 1890’s, as many of the first Indians and Chinese were brought into Malaysia to work in these plantations.
Stop by an invigorating waterfall and get misted by the cold waters cascading from steep drops. Be mesmerized by the constant, steady rush of water into a natural pool at the bottom of the waterfall formed by the sheer force of the falling water itself. The water in the pool is cool and clear and good for a refreshing swim as a refuge from the heat of Malaysia’s year-long summer weather. Let the roar of the waterfall drown out your thoughts for a moment of serenity and feel blessed by the misty droplets that shroud the area.
The last destination of your adventure is at Buffalo Park Langkawi where you will have 15 minutes to spend. This buffalo park is an active dairy farm where you can get fresh Mozzarella cheese made from the curds of the milk of the buffalo that reside here. The buffalo milk here is also used in the production of yoghurt, ice creams and different types of flavoured milk, and these are all made on the farm itself. At the café, you can try these products for yourself, or you can purchase them to bring home (if available). You can also visit the buffalo sheds and hand-feed the adults with grass and the calves with milk from bottles, and take some pictures with them to remember this visit by.
