Tour Description:

The tour commences at 11 am, whereby we will make the journey to the Kuala Terengganu Terrapin Conservation Centre located at Bukit Paloh—situated at the bank of the Terengganu River. Here, we will observe and learn about the conservation efforts for the Batagur Baska—a Northern River Terrapin that is one of the three rarest turtle species in the world. Between the months of January and April, some 1,300 eggs are gathered from three conservation sites annually. The centre cares for approximately 1,350 animal at an instance and releases about 600 terrapins into the wild each year. Since the commencement of the program, as many as 10,000 young river terrapins have been released into the Terengganu River.

An hour later, we will depart for Sekayu Waterfall to relax and get in tune with our senses and recalibrate our minds. Walk along scenic tropical fruit farms with a variety of fruit trees—durian, ciku, jambu, rambutan, duku and more—as well as a fragrant orchid garden. Do note, however, that these are seasonal and you may not see much fruits during off-season. Then, we will stop for a picnic lunch before continuing on our journey. Trek through a dense tropical rainforest to the top of the cascades; surrounded by verdure and a serene ambience. Opt to dip in cool waters or wander around the forest but remember to not stray far from the group, for your own safety. At 4pm, we will make our return trip back to Terengganu.
