RAWANG (August 25): About 200 people woke up early and braved the rain to take part in a hike up the Kanching Eco Forest Waterfalls located near Setia Eco Templer in Templer Park, Rawang today.
The EdgeProp.my + Setia Eco Templer Waterfall Hike 2019 was organised by EdgeProp.my and supported by Setia Eco Templer, a subsidiary of S P Setia Bhd.
Hikers were divided into two groups, one that climbed to Level 7 (208m above sea level) and another that climbed to Level 4 (140m above sea level).
Breakfast was served and a warm-up session was conducted before the hike began.
Present to support the hikers were EdgeProp.my managing director and editor-in-chief Au Foong Yee, S P Setia Bhd senior executive vice-president Datuk Koe Peng Kang and Setia Eco Templer Sdn Bhd general manager Dianne Chan.
One of the Level 7 participants, Tan She Yean, said this was her second time climbing the waterfall. She said it was a very fun climb but it can be rather taxing for beginners. “The rain made it slippery but it was such an exhilarating hike," she said.
Another participant, YL Chew aged 53 who also made it to level 7 of the Kanching hill took time to admire the waterfall.
"The waterfall scene here is nice. Since it rained this morning, the trail after level 7 was too slippery. I would like to come back here to conquer the levels past level 7."
All participants were led by rangers and each received a finisher medal after the hike.
The participants also got the chance to find out about the latest projects offered by Setia Eco Templer.
Located in Templer Park, Rawang, Setia Eco Templer is a 194-acre modern township development that launched its first phase in 2016, offering English, Peranakan and Balinese-inspired bungalows, semidees, link villas, two- and three-storey shop offices and a Rumah Selangorku affordable housing scheme.
Some of the facilities at Setia Eco Templer include a clubhouse with an Olympic-size swimming pool, gymnasium, jogging track, playgrounds, parks and 24-hour security.
The township is 23km away from the Kuala Lumpur city center via toll-free roads of Jalan Rawang and Jalan Kuching. It is also connected by the North-South Expressway, Guthrie Corridor Expressway, Kuala Lumpur – Kuala Selangor Expressway and Rawang – Serendah bypass, which cuts the journey to Serendah, Selayang and city center from two hours to about 30 minutes during peak hours.
