Canoeing on Sungai JelaiA homestay at Kampung Kuala Medang is a perfect hideaway with a difference. The village, set in the hinterland amidst fast-flowing rivers, rapids and verdant forest is in the sub-district of Ulu Jelai, about 51km from the town of Kuala Lipis and 150km from Kuala Lumpur.

Kampung Kuala Medang is known for its dodol, kuih bahulu, serbuk kunyit (turmeric powder) and noodles, made by residents as part of the village industry.  Other attractions in the village include jus salak (juice extracted from salak fruits), halwa, emping, bubur gula kabung and mat-making using mengkuang (pandanus) leaves.

The fast flowing river,  Sungai Jelai, are attractions taken for granted by the community but beckoning lots of challenging adventure freaks from beyond the village. You can go canoeing, challenge the rapids or while away the hours fishing.
Dodol making is a village industry at Kampung Medang
