Looking to find out if there are people here in Malaysia into the sport of Packrafting?

Its a relatively new sport in the world but it truly caters to those adventurous at heart or simply want a weekend of adventure in the water.

What is a packraft?
Packraft and trail boat are colloquial terms for a small, portable inflatable boat designed for use in all bodies of water, including technical whitewater and ocean bays and fjords. A packraft is designed to be light enough to be carried for extended distances. How light can it be? A packraft can weigh as little as 2kg and when folded it is the size of a kitchen towel roll. The contruction of packrafts are what sets it aside from conventional inflatable boats. Packrafts are made up of 210 Denier Nylon at least with some going as high as 800D nylon and Kevlar reinforced floors. Why this is attractive is because packraft can be packed into your backpack and brought anywhere. Whats more, the raft itself can handle your weight as well as your bicycle on top of it to cross bodies or water.

Sorry. Can't share in public.

Cause

1) It is a private land and not an actual camp site. It prohibited from enter and sometime police block it.

2) Don't want to polluted the place. We here still have alot of people throwing rubbish everywhere.

Is it very cold at night?

Yup. Probably 12-17°C.

Not just cold. The wind blow nonstop whole day.

And rain storm.

So the tent have to be strong.

Sometimes just sleep in the car.

12 degrees need thermal ... sleeping bag need to be those rated for those temps too

Trying that out once should be fun.

Normally I bring a comforter and sleeping bag rate at 15°c. With the air mattress underneath, it cosy enough. Or sleep in the car with it.

Just that when you walk outside with windstorm, shivering. Got to wear winter jacket.

You haven't try camp ontop mountain with 0°C below. That is more fun.

i've done just with sleeping bag. But if with air mattress lagi comforable. biggrin.gif

Don't fancy too cold. So those 0 degrees and below like EBC those maybe once in lifetime try haha. But what was the elevation of your camping spot in Genting?

Last weekend, pass by few nice lake on the way to batang kali campsite. Big lake and small.

Along the Ipoh road after Serendah town. Saw some people fishing in there too.

Good for kayak.

I think I know which you talking about. If you're coming from serendah toward Batang Kali, it's on the right side?

People Park at the side of the road and go fishing there. I've checked it out but haven't kayak there.

Not yet. The ones available here are the usual blow up type or from decathlon. If you're looking for these packraft like these then have to order from USA.

This mountain is not a public place. It is a jungle and it has a certain degree of risk.

With fewer humans roaming during this pandemic, more wildlife is coming out.

So camp at your own risk.

You want safe, camp at the town gazette for camping. This high-ground town is cold. Sg.pauh in Cameron and around town in Fraser.

The coldest is in Genting. But it is illegal. So can't recommend it in public.

Are there sites at Janda Baik we can rent a spot to camp? Last time when I stayed in an AirBnB i remember waking up to 19c - 21c temps, night was pretty cool as well. Wondering if there's any recommended spots?

Janda baik have plenty private campsite. Just go to FB and type janda baik campsite.

I only try this ABC campsite in janda baik. Don’t feel the cool.

Cameron can as low as 14c-17c at night.

Next 2 weeks will try again in genting.

Thanks bro. Will look them up
