Am I adventure-fit?

It's hard to determined that you are fit to do the adventures we offer. So, we thought, if we have some sort of classification system, it will help you decide which adventure into the jungle would suit you/your group. You will find our Malaysian outdoor adventure trips will have classifications to assist your choices. Here's what these classifications mean:

 

expand all | collapse all
Difficulty Level
Difficulty levels will give you a heads-up on what physical abilities or challenges expected when attempting an adventure trip. When possible we use the Yosemite Decimal System as the standard classification for outdoor adventures we describe.
