Running out ideas of how to spend your weekend? Fret not and head to Bilut Extreme Park for unique All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) adventures and sports archery. Bilut Extreme Park is located at Felda Lurah Bilut, 18km away from Bentong town. It is about 45 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur city centre. Prior to my ATV adventures at Bilut Extreme Park, my ATV adventures were merely ditching the almost-one-hour-queue at Sunway Lagoon for the 10 minutes ATV ride. Hence, the whole narration is all about my first-time experience riding ATV.
ATV Adventures at Bilut Extreme Park
For each session, 11 ATV riders are allowed to take part under the supervision of Abang Nazri, the ATV marshall and his assistant. The ATV adventures began with a briefing on how to operate the ATV. The important rules are how to ignite the ATV (pulling the brake and push the red button on your left-hand side) and how to use the gear and pull the brakes. Once we were on our ATVs, we were asked to follow the marshall going around the starting point before we were led into the practice ground.
The practice ground consisted of uphill obstacles, muddy trails and corner laps. At one point, we were asked to drive uphill and make an immediate u-turn so that we were able to control our ATV. It helps to boost the confidence in ATV handling. You think you might fall, but you are not for as long as you keep your legs on the leg rest. Once the marshal was confident with our ability and skills, we began our journey into the wild.
5 minutes into our trail, we rode through the stream, which turned out to be my favourite. Too bad, I was too excited that I did not capture the picture of us gushing through the stream.
We passed by the palm oil plantations and saw a hill from afar.
As we started quite late, the heat was pricking on my skin. Start as early as you can to avoid the heat.

Sometimes, you went off trail. It’s ok, that’s normal for a beginner like you and me.
The journey, as I stopped and turned back. The girls just passed the most difficult obstacle!
Bringing your DSLR is definitely not advisable as my camera cap kept on falling on the ground.
Towards the end of the trail, we passed by the plantation again and came out to the main road near Bilut Extreme Park.

Sports archery at Bilut Extreme Park
Next up is the sports archery, which is out in the open. It has the view of the plantation.
10 target boards were lined and the distance started from 10 feet. I was not born as Katniss, hence my skills were down to the ground which was an embarrassment. Kak Syikin who was in charge of the sports archery was really helpful in that she continued pushing me to the limits with some tips on how to be a good archery.
