Malaysia’s First Rock Climbing Base Camp and Eco-Adventure Hub Set To Redefine Perlis Tourism
Kuala Lumpur, 11 July 2023 – Perlis is a captivating destination with picturesque landscapes adorned by endless paddy fields and unique limestone outcrops. Boasting limestone cliffs, large caves and fresh routes, Perlis provides the perfect setting for rock climbing. The state’s mountainous national park in the west offers challenging climbing opportunities, while the flat regions showcase breathtaking limestone monoliths.
Capitalising on this natural beauty, MyEco Discovery Sdn Bhd (a member of MyUS Group) today announced the soft launch of ClubRock Perlis, the first-ever rock climbing base camp and eco-adventure hub in the state. The Chief Minister of Perlis, YAB Tuan Mohd Shukri Bin Ramli, launched the event at KL Eco City. ClubRock will embark on a nationwide roadshow in Kuala Lumpur, Johor, Penang, and Perlis, leading up to its public opening in January 2024, aligning with Visit Perlis Year 2024-2025.
Situated in Gua Kelam, ClubRock Perlis spans a total land area of over 23,000sq ft. It features 35 rooms and 5 premium camps, each accommodating up to four people. With a total capacity of 160 guests, ClubRock Perlis offers a unique and immersive experience amidst nature’s embrace.
“We are thrilled to introduce ClubRock Perlis, Malaysia’s first rock climbing base camp and eco-adventure hub in Perlis,” said Dato’ Nellsen Young, Executive Chairman and Group CEO of MyUS Group of Companies. “Perlis’ natural beauty is truly exceptional and a treasure trove for outdoor enthusiasts, and ClubRock Perlis aims to put the state on the map of world rock climbing. Our mission is to create a space for education, development, community growth, and exploration.

Empowering Local Communities

Supporting Eco-Tourism and Sustainable Practices
Prioritising sustainable practices, ClubRock Perlis will integrate eco-friendly technologies into its operations to conserve resources, recycle water, and reduce waste. Rainwater harvesting systems and compost machines are being implemented to achieve these goals. In addition to these efforts, the resort will offer informative and engaging daily tours led by knowledgeable guides, providing unique insights into Gua Kelam’s natural wonders and promoting environmental awareness.
Aimed at preserving and understanding the area’s natural wonders, ClubRock Perlis welcomes partnerships with universities and researchers interested in studying Perlis’ unique flora and fauna, emphasising collaboration and knowledge exchange.
