PULAU BANYAK > JUNGLE TREKKING


Click to enlargeHaloban is the most suitable starting point for treks into the jungle on Pulau Tuangku. Recently Yayasan Pulau Banyak (YPB) arranged training for 5 locals in Haloban. This project was paid by Mr. Siegfried Klein of Germany.

Click to enlargeThe trainers came from the Rainforest Lodge in Kedah. The guides need more training and experience, not to mention to learn English.

They have already started with that. Yayasan Pulau Banyak is also supplying some gears that can be used when they bring guests to the forest.
