Traveller -Awana Genting- Pahang

The New Year’s just begun and already you’re back in that zoo you call an office. Perhaps it’s time you head out to interact with some real wild animals, instead. No need to trek into the wilds of the jungle, you just need to head for the blissfully cool Awana Genting Resort. Stay with them and opt for a back-to-nature experience, with a specially arranged trip to a nearby elephant and deer sanctuary or a night trekking experience.

Located at Lanchang, the Elephant and Deer Sanctuary is located 96 km away from the Awana Genting Resort. The tour will begin at 9am when a Genting Tour bus picks you up for the journey to the sanctuary. There, you get to watch frolicking wild deers, and even have an opportunity to feed them. There are also other animals in the vicinity, like bears, snakes, and ostriches.

Straight after this, join a short jungle trekking course where you’ll get to see how the Orang Asli use ‘Sumpit’ or blowpipes. After lunch, the tour continues to the elephant sanctuary. The tour takes approximately eight hours, and is priced at RM180 for adults and RM155 for children. To sign up, just register at the reception counter of Awana Genting Resort.

In the evening, experience night trekking in the Awana Genting Moonlighting Tour, facilitated by experienced guides to ensure a safe and enjoyable night-trekking experience.

Trekkers can look out for fire flies, star-gaze and visit a Long House at night. Light supper will be provided at the end of the tour. Tour fees are priced at RM40 for adults and RM30 for children.

The Awana Genting is just 15 minutes away from Genting Highlands Resort.

The resort is offering a special deal where room rates begin from RM139 for two persons in a Double Deluxe Room or a Superior Deluxe Room. For further information, log on to or call 03-6101 3015 for booking enquiries.
