The portion is huge and the prawn was really big.

Highly flavoured, the gravy should be taken with a plate of piping hot rice.

There is bathroom ensuite. Our chalet was RM200 per night, inclusive of breakfast for two. Quite a good deal in my opinion, considering the beautiful view. There is a cafe across the river but if you don’t intend to dine there, we would recommend you to stock up on some ready to eat meals as it us quite a distance to the nearest town.

Helmets and lifejackets is absolutely necessary to avoid any unwanted injuries and incidents as the river flows really fast.

2. 4WD Off Road Trip

4WD off road ride to the jungle can be very rough. Therefore, Team E.T.A would not recommend this activity to those with heart issues or spinal problems.

Venturing deeper into the jungle, you will be able to get up close and personal with nature.

We would recommend you to bring shockproof and waterproof camera for picture taking purposes. Action and wide angle cameras like GoPro works well too should you want to record your journey throughout the 4WD trip.
