    Well you put adventure travel in the topics…..

    Drive to Genting Highlands. Look for the road to the Telekom antennas and ignore the sign saying trespassers will be shot.

    Follow it to the end. Park your car. Check your kit and find a way into the jungle. Follow the ridge.

    Soon enough you’ll lose telephone signal. The satellite maps from google are useless because of the tree cover, but you have a compass and can see which way the slope goes (for a 100m or so anyway).

    Keep walking. Hopefully you’ll have lots of food and cigarettes. The cigarettes are for the Orang Asli, the men of the forest. The food is because it might be a long time before they find you.

    It won’t be enough because it is a way to the nearest road. In fact a National Geographic expedition tried to do what you are doing about 10 years ago.

    It’s about 100-200km to the Gap at Bukit Fraser. They took 70 days with helicopter support. You might be in there a while, especially if you didn’t take any spare socks.

    This without a shadow of a doubt would be the best thing to do with your time in Malaysia. It would change your outlook on life and give you a truly deep understanding of our natural world and what we are losing as we cut it down.

    You would learn new languages and come out wiser and thinner than you went in.

    You might even bump into me along the way.

    However if you want good food you should try the stuffed crab place in Kemmaman and the Chinese restaurants in Bukit Tinggi (crispy pork is awesome and also wild river fish). For crab the Fatty Crab in Taman Megah is the best
