LETSGO! Ulu Geroh Semai Adventure

Not many are aware that within 30 minutes of Gopeng town, lies a community of Orang Asal know as the Semai from Kampung Ulu Geroh. They have been farmers, while also hunting and gathering of forest products and trade in wild fruits and vegetables, like durians, rattan, honey, resin and plants for traditional medicines.

Ulu Geroh is within the confines of Bukit Kinta Forest Reserve. Home to the rare and endangered Rafflesia cantleyi and the majestic Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing butterflies (Malaysia’s National butterfly).

While most people associate the Rafflesia with Borneo, here the buds was once sold for traditional medicines and the butterflies to collectors. Steps was taken to protect both treasures of Ulu Geroh and |SEMAI| or Sahabat Ekopelancongan Memulihara Alam Indah was formed. This indigenous community organization has helped built awareness for conservation and increase their income generated through eco-tourism.

In support of our friends from Kampung Ulu Geroh, we invite you to experience what it’s like to live amongst the Semai and just about 3 hours drive from KL City you’ll be able to immerse yourself into this little known haven of peace. LETSGO!
