Hutan Lipur Sungai Sedim




Sungai Sedim, KedahSungai Sedim, Kedah (2 May, 2005)





Hutan Lipur Sungai Sedim (GPS: 5.4091, 100.77712) is a recreational forest about 30 km northeast of Kulim, Kedah. Sungai Sedim, which flows down the hills of southern Kedah, is a tributary of Sungai Muda. The area is being privately developed into an extreme sports recreational centre with sporting activities such as whitewater rafting and tubing. Nature lovers and photography enthusiasts to Sungai Sedim will delight in the flora of the rainforest. A canopy walk has recently been constructed to offer visitors the opportunity to get closer to the trees.

It's been two years since I reported on the whitewater rafting activities at Sungai Sedim. (Read Sungai Sedim White Water Rafting.) Today I will take you on a walking exploration to simply appreciate the beauty of this place, one thing I didn't have much chance to do during the rafting trip.

If you have not been to Sungai Sedim, it isn't very easy to locate. You need some patience to negotiate through long country paths, through rubber and fruit plantations before arriving there. As you read in my report on the whitewater rafting activities there, I have not been impressed with the facilities and the level of safety. However, for people who come to seek the solitude and be close to nature, Sungai Sedim is a good place to sit and simply enjoy the cold running water over your feet.

I hope that you will also have a chance to visit Sungai Sedim one day. Happy exploring!

Getting to Sungai Sedim

Sungai Sedim is located off Kulim, in South Kedah. To reach it from Penang, take the Butterworth-Kulim Highway till the end, and look for the roadsign pointing to Hutan Rekreasi Sungai Sedim. For a long while you will pass through fruit plantation, through a very narrow country road before you finally arrive at the recreational area.
