Trails to the Caves of Baling

8 Dec 2012

 


Baling, an obscure border town in the state of Kedah is rich in both myths and history. Yet, little is known or found on its geology and natural attractions. 

Baling is rich in natural wonders and its karst systems found here are worthy of your attention. Not known for tourism, Baling probably has the most interesting caves in Peninsula Malaysia. Discover the majestic Gua Layang, the mysterious boat in Gua Perahu and the heart stopping Gua Gendang. With a well form and immense karts systems, most caves in
 Baling are not officially surveyed or documented.

MNS Cave Group will be organising a 4d/3n recce trip to Gua Baling from 8th December to 11th December, 2012. Other than visiting the three well known caves, participants are introduced to basic cave exploration. This is to encourage participants to view caves as not something of mystery or intimidation, but living museums with very important contribution to the ecology.

Itinerary as follows:
8th December 
5:30am Registration and briefing at McDonalds Centrepoint
6:00am Depart to Baling
12:00pm Check-in at Asana Homestay and proceed to visit Gua Perahu

Cost per participant is RM350 for members and RM420 for non-members (fee will include 1 year membership fee with MNS). Accommodation is based on chalets via sharing at Asana Homestay, Baling. Transport is via carpool by participants.
