Durian - Kampong Sungai Itek

Durian

More local fruit

Favorite thing: Not far from the white water rafting starting point I noticed a large-ish tree with some spiky fruit hanging from a single twig holding it to the main branch.

This was the tree bearing the famous king of fruit, the durian, much beloved for its by locals for its pungent taste.

The durian will fall of its own accord when it is ripe so they are never picked. Not unless the grower artificially ripen them. But connoisseurs claim to be able to taste the difference between the tree and gas ripened fruit.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Bouncy seat - Kampong Sungai Itek

Bouncy seat

Local fruit

Favorite thing: Sitting in the back of a small truck on the return trip from white water rafting I ducked under some low hanging branches when Michael, the owner of MM Adventures, yelled for the driver to stop and back up.

When we had reversed all the way back to the tree that I had dived under, Michael said that it was a rambutan tree in fruit.

He broke of some branches laden with the red 'hairy' fruits and tossed them into the rubber raft that we were sitting (bouncing) on.

The truck began to roll forward again and we peeled the skin from the fresh fruit and happilysavoured the sweet succulent flesh that it held within.

Change rooms and toilets - Kampong Sungai Itek

Change rooms and toilets

Change rooms

Favorite thing: You will get very wet while white water rafting and definitely dirty down in the cave so do bring along a change of clean clothing.

There are well maintained change rooms and toilets provided near the Tempurung Cave car park where for a small fee you can get out of your wet and soiled gear into something dry and clean.

The toilets are Asian style but clean so rest assured that your fee is put to good use.
