LROM: Sg Mas/Sg /Melantai JB-28/05-2/06/10

by on May.28, 2010, under LROM

More on the following link


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.

Gunung Ais-Jerantut, Pahang
by Alyna Tai
23rd- 29th Dec, 2008.

Lrom members closes off 2008 book with a Adventure of a Lifetime.

“One Life Live It” that’s what they said after the trip. A trip among members lead by Rate De Silva@Atek xmen00 was well worth going. We were told to be prepared for this rainy season and crossing of 4 rivers that will make us fear most. All of us were brief that there’s no timing what so ever or programme is a adventure trip. All of us were happy that we made it to the campsite have a good two nights camp at the destination with rain showering in a mist like snow.

The G.Ais lift up to the name with so beautiful night and lots of tiger prints. Both Alyna,kavern and Atek had to shout for help as we went down river night fishing one night. We did not managed to cross in time when water rises so we have to shout for help. The current was too strong for us to take the risk. The whole group was superb with lots of hard work to make it to our destination with washed out track, bridge crossing, river crossing and landslide. Is the Journey and we also made it to the destination.

They love every minute of it and also adventure of rising river crossing when coming out.Let’s shared our experience. A big thank you for the dinner and Ice cream as reward by the members and friends for a good adventures.

Pasir Raja Adventure with LROM.

pasir-raja pasir-raja2

More here in the Photo Gallery

Left KL night and arrived Pasir Raja Petronas for refill at 5.30am. We were told that the track is too hard core to even go in since the flood. We were also told the ruts are too deep, which i don’t believe cos we have recce the place before RFC in October. This track is supposed used for RFC 2008 as twilight zone but was cancel due to floods. The whole plan of camping at the recreation campsite site for breakfast changed due to no electricity at that area. We waited until 7.30am at the petronas yet still no current so we have to divert to smaller village (felda) about 12km away for fuel before entering off road. 4 vehicles – 2 Defender 300 LR, Rashid 90, Puma and Disco make this trip a memorable and fun adventure. Rashid have to leave on the Friday itself and join by Leong of Trengganu (RFC 2005 xmen marshal) a hilux on saturday after knowing the xmen atek be there. Leong who came alone and winching one time took one hour to find us in the campsite of Sg. Loh upper stream the river before Chengai Tree. We enter off road on friday morning and upon reaching campsie Rashid decided to go back out due to his promise to fetch his son in Lumut. Atek have to escorted him out and it took 3 1/2 hour to go out after rain. Pht by Alyna, Dzaeman and Eliza.

Expedition to Kubu Mat Kilau with LROM

Who is Mat Kilau? Check this out http://ms.wikipedia.org/wiki/mat_kilau. 
Mat Kilau the malay warrior who fight the British in the 60′s . The so called “Kubu Mat Kilau” or fort of Mat Kilau was found in the Pasir Raja area. The govt tried to promote the place for tourist purposes but no history was written there for people to know what’s all about. 00 has been there many times and almost fully recce the whole place. We find it interesting to share with club members since we are around the area. There’s more to explore if we have the time. The track entering to Mat Kilau was in good condition, only the 3 km towards the fort was really overgrown and a washout where the cement culvert have broken. We did not give up and oo decided to built a log bridge so that others also could go visit the fort. Late last year- the culvert is still in position only the soil was washed away until now nothing have been done. So dunno what they want to promote expecting people to go all the way and turn back. Even the Chengai Tree was at one time a big promotion and now nobody cares.
