MOUNT OPHIR HIKE & MALACCA TRIP

Malacca, Malaysia

Date: 25/03/2016 – 27/03/2016 (Fri – Sun)

As part of an adventure and team building expedition organised by Keppelite Recreation Club (KRC), 39 Keppelites across the Group took on Mount Ophir in Malaysia from 25 to 27 March 2016. Living up to its reputation as the sixth hardest mountain to climb in Malaysia, the hike up the 1,276m tall peak was characterised by uneven terrain, huge boulders and steep rock surfaces. It took the team eight hours to reach and return from the summit, with the more seasoned climbers patiently helping the less experienced participants along. Despite their varying fitness levels, all 39 Keppelites persevered with Keppel’s Can Do! spirit and made it to the top. Mr Lim Tow Fok, President of KRC, who also participated in the climb, said, “The participants hail from different business units and backgrounds and it is heartening to see them bonding through tough times and helping one another along the way.”
