Walking the tree tops of Sg Sedim

Friday 9 October 2009

We left in the morning to travel further north to the Tree Top Canopy Walk in Sg Sedim, Kulim. The canopy walk is said to be the longest canopy walk in the world, spanning 925m with the highest point at 30m. Each team was given a quiz sheet and we had to search for information concerning the place such as the local names of the trees and where certain trees are located.

Another thing that Sg Sedim is famous for is its water activities where adventure junkies from all over the world flock to its raging waters to tackle its many rapids ranging from grade 1 – 4. Unfortunately for us, the weather didn’t permit us to raft the waters as the local guide said that it was too dangerous because heavy rains can cause the river to swell without warning. Such a pity really as we had travelled all the way. The only water activity the guide allowed us to do was to jump into the river from a bridge and allow the current to bring us back to shore. Oh well, something is better than nothing.
