ATV TRAIL PACKAGE
There are few packages offered to ride ATV in here from 1 hour to 4 hours riding packages. For beginner, 1 hour to 1 and half hour packages are recommended due to the difficulty of the road and self endurance. Basic packages for beginner offered at RM 100 – RM 150 per person for 1 to 1 and half hour of riding. You can discover their website for more package offered at http://www.atvadventurepark.com/index.htm
The difficulty is depend on the packages you choose. The longer you ride will be more adventurous of ride and trails. Last visit, me and my team choose medium difficulty package which is 2 hours of ride. The trail is leading to Sofea Jane waterfall, 1 hour to the waterfall and another 1 hour back to the station.
At Sofea Jane Waterfall, we were allowed to take a quick bath enjoying the coldness of the waterfall after long journey and sweaty ride. The trail we ride was 80% muddy to the waterfall. It is dirt road which only accessed by ATV and few hikers.
Anyway, the green view is stunning and it was totally adventurous. We had to ride our ATV passing under dead tree, riding up to the hill of slippery muddy track which the most challenges track. To climb up the hill, we had to wait 1 by 1 to climb to avoid the front ATV gliding back down hitting us at the back.
The most interesting is when we has to glide down from the slippery hill track. This time we only has to focus on our brake and handle while the ATV glide down by it self. The collision happen between us especially when gliding down from the hill but it was adventurous and FUN.
