[Travel] Bentong Day Trip | Bilut Extreme Park & Valley Agro Park


Hey guys! If you're looking for one-day getaway then this travel itinerary might look interesting for you. Bentong is a little town under Pahang, that is only about one and quarter hours away from the city. I'm pretty familiar with this place because I have to pass this town before reaching my hometown. In general, it's can consider my neighbor's hometown because sometimes my parents will bring me explore some good foods at there.

Although Bentong is a small town but you have never expected that there's actually has many great places like Genting Highlands, hot-springs and waterfall. But in this post, I would like to share with guys a place special for people who love adventure surrounding by nature. So for those who planning to escape town, this place is a good option for you. :)






Bilut Extreme Park is a place for adventurous people who loves nature, exciting challenges and enjoying the fun of exploratory! This place is just 18km away, takes approximately about 15 mins from Bentong town. The location is surrounded by one of the oldest palm oil trees & rubber estates in Malaysia. Bilut Extreme Park offers Sports Archery and ATV Rides (All-terrain vehicle); suitable for adults and kids above 7 years old, best for group friends.


Bilut Extreme Park can be reached by car / taxi / public transport from Kuala Lumpur to Bentong then straight to Lurah Bilut. Advisable by own transport will be the most convenient way. For my case, I went there by bus with a big group of people. It took approximate about two hours from Kuala Lumpur to this place (you know the speed of bus~..... )


Opening Hours are EVERYDAY from 9.30am to 6pm
EXCEPT *Closed on Wednesday*










The first activity I played is Sports Archery. For those who has not try it out yet, no worry, there's will be a coach to guide you if you're a beginner. They will be teaching how the right standing and shooting posture, drawing the string and aiming to shoot.

This is my second time playing sports archery and played quite well. All thanks to my Taiwan's sifu (my first experience was at there). They have provided professional equipment to protect yourself from hurting while shooting even if you're a left-handed person, they do have a special bow for it. Since I have my first experience so my result was not bad. Pretty proud of myself why can learn so fast, lol. XD

PRICE RANGE FOR SPORTS ARCHERY
12 arrows (1 person) : RM10
24 arrows (Max 2 persons) : RM18
36 arrows (Max 3 persons) : RM27
60 arrows (Max 4 persons) : RM40
120 arrows (Max 5 persons) : RM72









One of the highlights in Bilut Extreme Park is ATV Rides (All-terrain vehicle). I had an amazing experience for this ride. They offer few packages (refer below) where you choose a simple route for beginners and extreme route for those who has experience. This is my first time playing ATV Rides. To be honest, I am worried if I can't control well but surprisingly it's actually very simple even for kids.

I went thru the simple and extreme route but please prepare of sunburn because you will ride under the hot sun. Thank God I'm 发神经 wear the jacket during the hot weather lol.  The ride took me almost one and half hours to complete and some of the routes are pretty hard but it's okay... Riding across in nature and river are something that can't be done in the city.


PRICE RANGE FOR ATV RIDES
ATV Route A (30 minutes) : RM70
ATV Route B (60 minutes) : RM120
ATV Route C to E (90 minutes) : RM180 - RM200
Family Packages (60 minutes) : RM120
















Stomach will start to annoying after playing extreme sports. Valley Agro Park is a place that is just 5 mins away from Bilut Extreme Park. This place not only offers delicious tastes but also provides accommodation, price range starts from RM50 per 2 pax up to RM270 per 6 pax. It is a great option for short escape from town.

Since this is only a day trip so I'm having lunch at here. To be honest, I'm quite familiar with Valley Agro Park because this place is pretty nearby my hometown so sometimes my families and relatives will having lunch or dinner at this place surrounded by nature.

Besides than that, they do also have other activities that you can be hanging around like visiting vegetable garden, miniature animal park, fishing, camping and more. Due to the time limitation on that day, I only able to visit their new Bee Museum which gives us a chance to get closer with bees, understanding the nature living while also able to taste the fresh honey.






I really recommend this place as you can know how's bees proceed honey while also get to taste it live. Bee Meseum raises Stingless bees, a species that does not sting and living in the tropical countries. These kinds of species actually very safe and produce a different taste of honey comparing like what you normally would see in the market. You will be able to taste it live and able to see the pure honey extraction from stingless bees.

Stingless bees produced honey is liquidy and runny. I do not like honey as they have a "honey" taste but surprisingly I love this type of honey. The taste of it is kinda sour, like drinking plum honey. It is yummy! Besides that, this honey is high with antimicrobial and has stronger medical value, as well as twice the nutrients compare to the usual honey.


Only 5 mins away from Bilut Extreme Park. 
Adviseable using own transports instead public to reach.
