For a back-to-nature weekend with a difference why not try Rumah Rehat Adeline (Adeline's Rest House) at Kampung Geruntum near Sungai ltik, just 7 Km from the Perak town of Gopeng. However, if you like your creature comforts then this may not be for you, but If you enjoy outdoor hobbies and, have an adventurous spirit, then this is a good starting point. The Rest House is set in a spacious plot of five acres containing a number of well established Durian trees.
Within walking distance from the Rest House a sparkling waterfall tumbles its way down an obstacle course of boulders through shady forest. This is also the haunt of White crowned Forktail. Eventually the turbulent river levels off to a more meandering route to create some quieter pools that are safe for bathing.
For those with a keen interest in nature there are some excellent opportunities for pastimes such as photography, bird and butterfly watching, as well as more active outdoor pursuits.
Birdwatchers, for instance, can expect to find species such as Blyth's Hawk-Eagle, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Red-crowned Barbet, Black headed and Stripe-throated Bulbuls, and Rufous tailed Tailorbird, Barn Owl in the nearby oil palm plantation, Great Hornbills and, more recently, a small group of White-crowned Hornbills, judging by his apt description of this species' "punky white hair-do".Butterfly enthusiasts will not be disappointed either. A small hot-spring bubbling to the surface in the plantation just a short drive from the Rest House created a perfect habitat for a colourful gathering of male Rajah Brooke's Birdwing, with a number of other species observed in the plantation and many more near the waterfall. The experienced botanist, as well as those who simply have a layman interest in tropical flora, will find that the nearby forest has plenty to offer, not least of all being the fact that one of the famous Rafflesia species grows here. Obviously, if you are keen to see and photograph one, it will be worth checking with Adeline prior to booking to find out whether there are any in bud or even flowering at that time. She can also organise for a guide to take you to the exact location.
More strenuous activities such as jungle-trekking, white-water rafting on the Kampar River, abseiling, and exploration of the nearby Gua Kandu caves are also available. A qualified guide can be hired for any of these activities at a reasonable fee. Transport can also be organised through Adeline for those wishing to visit the caves.
