It’s 5 more months till 2023 comes to an end, folks. And we think you deserve some time off work to recharge and amp up the self care! If you love hiking in nature and have a deep appreciation for immersive touristy experiences, then you might want to consider this unique activity we found.

Get some good cardio and fresh air in as you uncover Serendah’s authentic lush forest greens at Bukit Beruang. On this beginner-friendly hike, you’ll get to follow a trail only known to the Orang Asli Temuan people as they share their expertise on the local flora and fauna of the land.

It’s a hike unlike any one you’ve probably been on as the hike takes place on gazetted Orang Asli land that’s not open to the general public. The hike lasts about 2.5 hours, with packed meals of authentic Temuan food cooked by the tribe itself served at the end of your journey (snacks provided during your hike too!)

If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, then head on over to this experiential tourism platform, Buddyz (nope, this is not a paid partnership. We’re just super impressed by this!)

In one of the experiences we’re highlighting today, Buddyz works closely with Native Discovery, a community-based tour organization that empower indigenous communities in Peninsular Malaysia to boost their livelihoods whilst showcasing the unique way of life of our Orang Asli.

“We collaborate with Native Discovery by promoting and assist travelers in booking while Native helps these local experts to become an engaging host and build new connections” the co-founder of Buddyz, Nigel Wong told WORLD OF BUZZ.
