Onto the River, caving trip for mns members

Onto the River
The meandering road to Borneo Highlands or Annah Rais Longhouse in the Penrissen Highlands edges the Sarawak River. But have you ever thought about exploring the river; bathing in the golden sunlight as it edges through the trees; observing man's influence on nature and nature's influence on man; and pretending that you are the first person to do so.
The Kuching Branch of Malaysian Nature Society is giving all members an opportunity to take a journey of discovery down the Upper Sarawak River, on Sunday, May 8, 2016. This voyage, which is organised through Semandang Kayaking (), will let you explore the river.
Please note that children must be over 6 years old. However, all minors must be accompanied by a guardian.
The discounted package price for MNS members is RM165. This includes kayaks, paddles, life jackets, lunch, and pick up. The pick-up / drop-off point is the parking lot in front of the Choice Daily in Tabuan Laru (map attached).
Registration for this adventure is a must and the closing date is Thursday, April 28, 2016 through email at mnskuching@gmail.com. Full payment must be made and the completed attached indemnity form submitted by Monday May 2, 2016 to Ann or Alcila
