Mountain climbing? Trail hiking? Snorkelling or kayaking? Whatever your adventurous poison, South East Asia holidays offer travellers a unique chance to let their wild side loose, embark on an adventure-filled journey and take in some of the continent’s most wondrous surroundings and backdrops.
Mountain Climbing at Mount Kinabalu
Nothing encapsulates the adventurer’s spirit more than mountain climbing. Mount Kinabalu in Borneo is Malaysia’s highest mountain and provides many adventurous avenues for those on a South East Asia holiday. Though the climb is over 4,000 meters, it is generally an easy climb and the mountain can be scaled in a few hours. Many climbers also opt to spend the night at Laban Rata, a gorgeous mountain-side lodge located within world heritage site of Kinabalu Park. Staying here means waking up to a quality breakfast and some souvenir shopping before heading off towards the summit, where you can watch the sun rise over beautiful country below.
Trekking the Kokoda Track
The infamous Kokoda Track in Papa New Guinea, where the now legendary troops of the 39th Australian Infantry Battalion fought a series of battles with the Japanese, is a formidable trek that is only suitable for the most fit and determined adventurers. The trail can be completed over several days or several hours, depending on how much of a challenge you want. There are a number of companies that offer tours, all of which include food, accommodation, transportation and other features to suit your needs. Since the trail is located in an isolated area with sporadic access to clean drinking water, it is strongly recommended that ample physical preparation be undertaken before embarking on this particular South East Asia holiday adventure.
Cycling Through the Mekong Delta
The Mekong Delta is a historically, culturally and biologically rich area in south western Vietnam. Here, visitors will find cycling tours in abundance. Most will take you to a variety of amazing spots and allow you to get up close and personal with some of the region’s more remote and traditional locations that might miss on an ordinary tour. The great way to cap off this leg of your South East Asia holiday
is by trekking up Sam Mountain in Chau doc, the peak of which sits at around 1,000 metres above sea level. Many temples and pagodas are located nearby and at the top, you can have a break, lie in a hammock and view the Mekong Delta landscape below.
Fishing Trips in Cambodia
If you love water-based adventures, Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city, is the point of departure for adventurous fishing tours that allow you to get the most out of the waters of Cambodia. The tour will take you across Cambodia’s beautiful landscape to tiny floating fishing villages, remote waterfalls, rapids, and more. Each day will give you a chance to try a new activity, including deep sea fishing, hiking, snorkelling, kayaking and angling, before settling down at a camp spot or lodge.
