  • Members are required to register for this activity on or before 27 November.Please include full name, IC or passport number, and email and handphone number.
  • Participants are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes appropriate for the jungle, as well as to bring sufficient drinking water. 
  • Please bring insect repellent and sun block. 
  • This trip is also suitable for kids and since its school holiday just brings them along but register them too.
