A weekend of fun and trill in Sg. Mas and Sg Melantai. 7 vehicles from various make Range Rover, Def 110, Def 90 , Disco,lC, Hilux and a Triton. We arrived early morning at the entrance of the Sg Mas and was greeted by various govt Dept and NGO who is manning the jungle. We would like to Thanks all department involved esp Forestry of Kahang 28 for approving our permit to enter the jungle of Forest Reserve. To all the below Department for their co operation. Terima Kasih.
1 Jabatan Hutan Kahang 28
2.Jabatan Penghilitan, Mersing
3.PDRM Mersing
4.Kulim Guard Sdn.Bhd.
6.Wildlife Conservation Society
7.other NGO’s.

We took 7 hours to reach our campsite going through more than 16 bridges and gaps without much work as all the bridges are still intact. The first thing that we saw along the trail is the rubbish everywhere esp at the campsite of Sg. Melantai. We have to camp on the track as the sides are full of rubbish. The next day we drove around the track lead by Rate who is familiar with the trail. We met a group of off roaders (4 vehicle ) from Beko Direction. They are not sure where they are heading and when we ask if they have a permit to enter they said no. The best is to back track after seeing they have kids and one of their cars is on 2 wheels advised Rate. Further they have guns in their car that are not permitted. Malaysian will never learn or even read papers. The illegal hunting is not allowed esp in a Forest Reserve.

We contimued with our driving and come across another 5 4WD in the Hulu Mas area There’s a toyota with Tmn. Negara sticker and these off roaders are from Kota Tinggi. We left after saying hello. We continue with our driving to the moutain where we came a upon a opening area where old markers is everywhere. It was a Special Stage area of International Rainforest Challenge which held there 2009. Their poles, marker, RFC SS board , mineral bottles are everywhere. We clear off some as it too tedious to collect back all the rubbish thrown there.

The boys head back to the campsite for swimming after clearing much of rubbish that we could take out. Getting out the track was quiet easy only 5 hrs and we were lucky to escape the heavy thunderstorm that hit after we clear all the obstacles. Thank you to all for the great adventure in Johore.
