It was worth it.
I can’t remember where I’ve heard of Nomad Adventure but it surely sounded familiar. After experiencing their well-executed and smooth-ran activities, I believe this is one of those cases where word of mouth carries weight. One that you can’t recall who recommended or mentioned them to you; their professionalism, experience and service precedes them. It travels. Word travels.
Founded in the mid 90's, Nomad Adventure owner and Managing Director Yuen Li shared how she started, her whys and her inspiration. I was overwhelmed, ecstatic, awed, I truly felt that I should just start my own company (whatever it may be) right there and then. To the point that I think this Perak Fam Trip should win ‘The Most Inspiring Fam Trip’, a type of culture that we should instil in us travel bloggers. Inspire, venture, excel.
Being an early rock climbing developer and pioneer, and now one of the top adventure tourism destinations in South East Asia, Yuen Li’s Earth Camp provides eco-friendly campsite that is currently popular amongst companies for leadership camps activities and amongst colleges and universities for their teambuilding activities. Emphasizing strongly on safety, Nomad Adventure is the first outdoor adventure company in Malaysia that attain an ISO 9001:2008 certification. Aside from that, they are trained for Rescue 3 International, which is the largest and globally recognized rescue training organization for flood, water and rope rescue. Despite accolades of praise, recognition and awards, Yuen Li remains humble and hands-on on daily operations. In fact, during our caving and white water rafting excursion, she was kayaking to and fro; our safety is her utmost priority.
