Waterfall Hunting for EXROCK 2018
In conjuction with #rover100 celebration, a group or Rover namely Griffin Rovers (Pasukan Pengakap Kelana G Kuantan) had successfully organised an extreme camp which located in a deep green forest between Kuantan-Maran state border in Pahang, Malaysia.
The programme, Extreme Rover Celebration 2018 (EXROCK) was participated about more than 40 Rover around Malaysia as well as 1 Rover from Maldive. As the name said, the programme offered numerous extreme activities such as waterfall abseiling, monkey zipline, hiking, camping, campfire and jungle exploration.
As the location in Eco Rimba Jerangkang is in a deep forest, the location only can be accesibble by 4 wheel transportation with one hour journey. But me and my two friend, took the adventure into the new level, we went through jungle with our own motorcycles!! The challenge was quite thrilling as the road surface was muddy and up to now, we dont even know, how deep are the muddy holes along the way! And its absolutely deeper than common hole-cracking road. Sometime, our motorcycles stucked in that muddy ground and need two-men effort to retrieve our motorcycles. hahaha..
Overall, we enjoyed the activities. We managed to reach the top of the waterfall which known for level 20. Awesome right? The beauty of the real waterfalls can be seen with own eyes and potrayed in our memories. In fact, there is one spot near the waterfall which you can take photo with remarkable scenery.
We enjoyed the night with the awesome campfire. As we came from the different states across Malaysia, we exchanged our scout songs, claps, dances and games. It's so great to sit in a circle and exchange our stories. We even forgot the midnight and some us even went to fishing in nearby water in a pitch of black. hahaha.. the hobby cannot be stopped.
At the closing ceremony, our programme was participated by the Chief Scout of Pahang as well as National MoP Coordinator. They came to commemorate the significant event and see the progress of the SWA project (The Wash Project) which initiated there. The Wash Project basically serve the community by building a proper toliet for the campers there using the gravity-flow of water. The project is about 70% completed and they have been there about a month. Salute to that SWA group!
To conclude, the event was a successfully organised and left the exciting memories. Surely, this event boosting the Scouting spirit, friendship, mutual understanding, cooperation and nurture the young adults to love the environment. Only one word.. AWESOME!!
