Adventure Langkawi

A 4D3N Residential Excursion to Langkawi Island in Malaysia 17th June to 20th June 2015

 

 

I am delighted to inform you that the end of term trip in the Trinity term will be a 4 day 3 night Adventure/Educational Excursion to Langkawi Island, West Malaysia. The trip will take place from Wednesday, 17th June 2015 to Saturday, 20th June 2015. This period will be a welcome break after the IGCSE exams.

The trip ‘Adventure Langkawi ‘ will serve both as a reward after this year’s academic toils and also as a fitting, closing chapter to the graduating Seniors’ educational journey at Dover Court International School.

During the excursion, students will be accompanied by professional guides exploring the famous UNESCO-endorsed Geopark in Southeast Asia. The Langkawi’s Geopark is noteworthy in its array of impressive rock formations surrounded by ancient jungle, vast caves with stalactites and stalagmites, winding mangrove reveries, sea caves and tunnels, wildlife and waterfalls. Over 90 geo-sites have been found in the region but there are three distinct areas that form the Langkawi Geopark, each with its own unique geological significance.

Students will also get to participate in fun and exciting activities like trekking in the Geopark, kayaking through the mangroves of River Kilim in the Kilim Karst Geopark, and snorkelling in Pulau Payar. The highlight of the trip will be to experience the cable car ride. This is one of the world's most amazing cable car rides. The ride to the top of Mount Mat Cincang takes you to a height of 708 meters in about 20 minutes through the steepest cable car gradient in the world and offering breath-taking views of the mountains, valleys, islands and the Andaman Sea.

In the evenings students will be engaged in group games and a disco night with a theme.

These activities will give students an opportunity to develop higher-level decision-making and problem-solving skills, as well as co-operation and teamwork.

A more detailed letter will follow in the first week of the new term.
