We walked from Awana Genting Highlands Hotel to the abseiling course. We climbed almost 40 stairs and ascend to the destination that took us almost 20 minutes. When we arrived at the destination, I took one look at the Abseiling course and thought it would be a piece of cake – overconfident.
The outdoor abseiling isn’t so tough, it is 45° to the ground and the height is 40 feet. Before we begin though, we have to get into our basic gear :
- Climbing harness
- Carabiner & Figure 8
Then, the rope is anchored to a giant tree at the top of the ramp. I looked at the knot they did of the rope at the anchor. I hope it is strong enough to keep lil-ol-me safe and not fall face first to the bottom of the hill. I tried the normal rappelling and the Australian rappel. Oh, and both times I did it with Zaid. And this is when everybody in MSS2011 start teasing us about a “scandal”. Oh, but we’re cool, right Zaid?
The Outdoor Abseiling is part of the Eco Sports Activities under Awana Genting Highlands. It costs RM 30 for adult and RM20 for child. There are other activities under the Eco Sports such as Nature Trek, Indoor Abseiling, Indoor Rock Climbing and Outdoor Flying Fox. I was told that the Indoor Abseiling is tougher, the height is 80 feet and at 90° to the ground.
There are also other “Fun & Adventure” activities offered at Awana Genting. They have team building program, a program not only challenging but will leave a great mark on your life. Companies or bodies who wants to instill cooperation in your employees or groups should definitely sign up for the team building program at Awana Genting. The rate of RM1400/session (for 40 people and below) or RM35/person (for 41 people and above) is affordable indeed. There’s also the GO GREEN Team Building Program, good for the environment as well as support to what Dato Anthony Teo suggested.

We had a lot of fun with the abseiling, laughing at how Daniel bunny-hopped his way to the bottom, how Feeq was hiding in the bushes as a papparazzi (or maybe to past motion since he had stomachache the whole day.. :lol:) and how everybody were so energetic until our trainer, Zul got caught up in the hype too! Suddenly make me want to Facebook MMS everyone on my FB using The Cube coz it certainly was a super hyper moment!
After everybody did at least 2 rounds of rappelling, we got out of our gear and walked straight to where we’ll be spending the night – the longhouse – where our bags and luggages are already waiting for us…
