Private Property


Not far far away, there located many hills right after Kuala Lumpur a busy city, hidden one private location that is open to many invtesors to purchase land to build their own weekend home or make it as your own plantation is Orchard Heights that is only an hour or 90 mins drive (depends on your speed limit)  away from KL, you will reach this small little Karak Town.

Dusun (2)

Driving thru the small road and you will reach this ‘so called huge junction’ where you see this yellowish sign then there’s where you need to turn in.

Dusun (3)

Turn in then just follow all the way up till you reach a gate. If they close it cuz its a private property area.

Dusun (1)

Give them a ring to notify that you are here and they will send some one to open the gate for you. Do bare in mind that its quite a hidden area here and mobile coverage here is pretty BAD on this particular area at the gate.

Dusun (4)

As we drove slowly till we reach this kampung house is also known as a service being offered to public to stay. Hidden right in the middle of the greenery, air here is definitely fresh compare to what we had daily at the busy city.  Orchard Heights is a place we can chill with family on this very relaxing area by fishing, fruit hunting, BBQ, cook in the house, and magnificient view that you would not want to miss with little hiking.

Dusun (5)

This place is huge, as its about 187 acres with all plot of land being sold out, at amazing low price RM 200,000 for a 1 acre piece of land. In KL, you cant event buy an apartment with that amount yet here you own 1 ACRE of land. *Sweat. Most of the investors here are building their ideal getaway homestay. This area is gated and guarded, complete with a 8ft high perimeter fencing, comes with  amentias, as electricity, water supply, irrigation water, roads and drains are already in place.

The actual owner Major Ng have this vision that want people to retire healthily therefore its here that he put is flag in. Not only that, those who do not prefer to stay here long, he had came out with a concept of homestay whereby we can just rent this kampung house and hang out with family or friends which makes it Homestay Resort for Orchard Heights.

Dusun (6)

Homestay version that he have now is 3 types. The one we are now visiting  is RM800 per night with beds for 10 and those who do not mind to share or sleep in the living room can easily fit another 5-8 pax. This package also includes unlimited durian (if in season), 5 tilapias, and you can eat fruit fresh from the tress as you walk along the paths of the orchard.

Dusun (7)

A quick tour that have 3 bed room and all bed are hotel quality type bed.

Dusun (8)

Dusun (12)


Dusun (13)

Looking right thru behind the kitchen you will be able to see a pond.

Dusun (14)

You can picnic at the hut right in the middle of the pond, or stay here doing BBQ at night or fishing in the pond as they r all tilapias.

We were there ngam ngam at the end of the season and all these durians are fresh. Drop during the morning and the have more unique breed compare to normally on what we eat. D24, kampung durian and many namings that the Major had gotten from.

    • D24
    • D197 (Musang King/Nasi Kunyit)
    • D160 (Tikar) (Chut Keok)
    • D99
    • D158 (Kanyau, Tangkai Panjang) (Which is from Thailand and the stalk is very long
    • and many more

Dusun (18)

Eating during is easy when there are people already do all the job for you but to open this bunch of durian is not an easy task with the shell type it have.

Dusun (19)

Dusun (20)

Right after eating durian, we went for a short walk, around the orchard to understand further more what’s being offered.

Dusun (21)

I am suprise to hear that the Major came by and plant all the fruit plantation with his team. 50% of the land is planted with rows and rows of Durians, some were inherited, but many were planted within the past 10 years, and nurtured by a committed team of permanent staff.

Dusun (22)

We eat it fresh from the tree, with rambutans and Pulasan.

Dusun (23)

finally we aim one tree that gives us the sweetness that we want and there is no pesticide used.

Dusun (24)

Dusun (25)

Dusun (26)

Look at the pulasan here, its huge. . .

Dusun (27)

outside could easily sell about RM15 perkg – RM20 perkg

Dusun (28)

on that day it was rainy day and we were not allow to head to the peak for safety reason. We hike halfway thru only. If reach the top according to the major you can see all the sharp edge of the hills. Enjoying yourself up there with kids and friends is one of the best thing to relax.


Now How do we get there:

Travel along KL – Karak Highway from Gombak toll ( rate RM 5) , pass by Genting Highland, Bukit Tinggi until reaching Bentong toll gate ( rate RM 3) approximately 60 km from Gombak toll.

Directions: From Bentong toll drive straight pass by Sg Dua, Cinta Manis then look out for Exit 813B on your left side of the highway to Karak town. Bentong toll gate to Orchard Heights Bungalow site will be approximately 25km.

From Exit 813B  to Karak town which is at about 5km ahead. Look for KFC at the main road left side of the Karak town. From KFC to Orchard Heights Bungalowis about 12.4 km.

To reach Orchard Heights Homestay. From KFC drive about 0.5km you will notice a police station on your right and there is a T junction which you need to turn right to go to Orchard Heights .

Look for a Big Yellow sign board of LADANG SABAI on your left after 11.4km from the police station T junction. At the Ladang Sabai signboard turn left across a steel bridge then turn to the left go up to the paved tar road. That is exactly the location.

Lazy with all those, then please key this into your device:

Fish Farm Thai Restaurant During New Year Eve, whole group of my best friend came down to KL to celebrate and then since they started to know I blog about food and they had arrange the dinner to be somewhere unique and dalam dalam. When they told me about the location of the restaurant I ponder a while, keep recalling what are they talking about and Google through it, there are a few bloggers mention about this place most of them without address. When got the address from them I was like haaaaa…middle of nowhere. On the way there, it took me a few guessing and turning before reaching this place and only I realize that, Ampang Lookout Point is just there. (then only I realise that, the recent outing of Thai food seems to have unique locations and ambience)

Vegie Fish Farm

If you head from Ampang, you will pass through Lookout Point and proceed further down around 500m-800m, on your right you will see this small gate. That is where to turn in which is a private property. Then will have to drive through about 5 mins with the rocky and non tar road up and downhill till you reach this very huge parking space and farms around.

Vegie Fish Farm (2)

This is how the location of the Thai restaurant looks like, build with wood planks above the ponds that filled with fish Koi. If you have phobia of the wood planks broke then you can be seated on this very hard solid ground.

Vegie Fish Farm (3)

It looked like a mini village and its sure impressive when I saw it.

Vegie Fish Farm (4)

The place that where they prepare the desert.

I thought it was Barley but to my surprise that when I about to drink it, it smells so weird and the first sip, my face smirk till cant event see my eyes. It taste so awful and only learn that it is ‘Tody’ which is known as alcoholic drinks from coconut. This cup of drink definately not my type but my friend enjoys it alot. Small-RM 5
