Still remember my previous post about Whitewater Rafting at Gopeng Perak? I had an opportunity to experience the "feeling" of staying in the jungle. So, 2D 1N I stay with my new friends... mosquito and ants...

Earth Camp is a social enterprise run by Nomad Adventure. They provide adventure and environmental education activities that foster within people from all walks of life the appreciation, knowledge, values and skills necessary to inspire ecologically-sound decisions and actions.

They also provide 1-day, 2-day or longer programs for those who love to learn in the out-of–doors. Through a variety of adventure and experiential activities, campers will investigate the natural environment of our river, forest and karst ecosystems.

The tree house are Handcrafted from wood, their tree houses are cosy dwellings for 2 persons.
4 persons can squeeze in sardine style into the 8 foot x 10 foot house. How to differentiate it? It's easy. Just look on their window.

For 3 person per room, the window is from wood and for 2 person, the window from green color cloth and there have a tree on the middle of the room. They have a total of 14 tree houses. Each tree house has a light and two plug points. So, don't worry if you need charge your camera batter or your phone.

When natural calling, you need a proper place to let it go ^^ At Earth Camp their bathrooms and toilets are re-purposed from polycarbonate water tanks. Each unit has either a sit-down toilet or a shower. Cool huh? For your info, they all do it by theirself. They use huge tank in order for them to easily clean it.

Re-purposing is an off-shoot of re-cycling where items meant for one purpose are re-used for another, possibly better purpose. They choose to use the polycarbonate water tanks as they are highly UV-resistant and provide a minimalist solution to our bathroom needs for Earth Camp.

Tree houses are buildings constructed among the branches, around or next to the trunk of one or more mature trees, and are raised above the ground. It's quite fun to experience it but I hope they can prepare a thick mattress please.

It's also a place for you to chill out with other people. It's good things if you can spend 20-30 minute to meet new friend.
