A visit to Kg Rening, Cameron Highlands

On 26th October 2017 we went for a visit to an Orang Asli kampung in Cameron Highlands. Kampung Rening is an Orang Asli kampung located at Pos Telanok, Cameron Highlands about 40 km from Ringlet. Its inhabitants are made up of the Semai people who lived in this village since the time of their ancestors. Kampong Rening consists of 150 people of Semai community. Out of these 150, 6 people have converted to Islam.

A resort at Kampung Rening called PEKA Resort was built by the Orang Asli under the guidance of Persatuan Kembara Amal (PeKA), a registered NGO. This resort is now managed by the Orang Asli guided by PeKA members.
