Gunung Rinjani (Volcano - dormant) in Lombok, Indonesia
If you are looking for team building activities with some new
challenges and an environment that could free the soul of the participants from
the daily routine, a Trekking and Expedition Trip might be the answer for you.
Trekking and Expedition Trips involve the challenge of
mental and physical fitness; the experience of the importance of team work; and
the opportunity to be close to nature. It
is just one service among the full range of adventure services provided by Blazing
Outdoor Adventurers & Co Pte Ltd (BOAC).
BOAC is an adventure travel company founded by a group of adventurers who
aim to assist like-minded outdoor enthusiasts, experienced or otherwise, to
pursue fun, innovation and a love for the outdoors.
As Mr Joseph Foo, Manager - Operations & Training of
BOAC, suggests: “Trekking trips to places like Gunung Rinjani in Lombok, MountKinabalu
in Malaysia and MountFansipan
are recommended for beginners as well as for the experienced, or for those
looking at moderate challenges”. Mr
Joseph Foo brings to the company the experience and knowledge of 20 years of
outdoor life. Since 1988 he has done,
organized & led more than 200 treks, including Gunung Tahan (Malaysia's
toughest trek) no less than 10 times, with the last one in a cool 2 days.
“With an ideal 6 to 10 people in a group we provide arrangement
on travel, food, camping, preparation, Group Conditioning Sessions (GCS) and a trekking
guide on the chosen destination”.
“We strongly encourage the participants to attend GCS to
tune up their physical fitness before departure and keep them motivated throughout
these sessions”. He added: “It is, in
fact, from GCS that team work and the bonding within the team starts to develop.
The experience and enjoyment commence at
this point of time”.
According to Joseph Foo, all the preparations aim to provide
practical advice, set the expectations and to condition their mind for endurance
and strength. The GCS would take 6 to 8
weeks and each session lasts about 3 hours.
The participants who completed these trips are employees of
companies, students and families.
There are also choices and arrangements for combining
trekking with other activities like Safari, Whitewater Rafting and Cultural
It seems to be a good way to train your employees and let
them return with lifted self confidence and enhanced team bonding. After all, BOAC’s adventure travel
consultancy service is backed by 30 years of outdoor travel experience.
