It is my hope that one day I would be able to marry Traditional Malay Medicine to Modern Medicine for the benefit of my patients.

Herbwalk is not talking about herbal cures or giving out that special herbal drinks we concocted ourselves to show we can. No. It is about imparting knowledge. It is about interacting and exchanging ideas. It is about relaxing and feeling at home with nature and trying to understand the language of the plants. It is about health advises and health understanding.

Herbwalk is a term used to describe a tour whereby the tourist is taken for a walk in an area with a running commentary on the various medicinal plants on display in a garden or seen in the forest.

The herbwalk in Langkawi is the first of its kind in Malaysia. We are proud to say that the very first herbwalk ever in Malaysia and Langkawi was done on the 29th of January 2007 for our very special guest Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia's fourth Prime Minister and the one who made Langkawi  what it is today.

The center of our activities lies in the vicinity of the eastern foothills of Gunong Raya and the Ayer Hangat River.

Our Guide Team:

1. Dr. Abdul Ghani Hussain (aka Dr. Ghani) - He is a reknown figure in Langkawi after practicing Medicine in Langkawi for 23 years. He now set aside his practice to concentrate on the study of Traditional Malay Medicine and Islamic Medicine. He has been actively collecting medicinal plants since 2000 and his collection today amounts to more than 500 different species and it is growing steadily.

2. Mohd. Shah Zakaria (aka Pak Long Bashah) - Another well known figure in Langkawi amongst the locals. Pak Long Bashah knows every inch of the islands like the back of his hands. His knowledge of the  flora of the rainforest far exceeds even the dons at the universities, he is a source of information to them. And why shouldn't he? At a ripe age of 72 he has made the rainforest his playground since childhood and made sure he knows every single tree and their uses. For he uses them daily in his work.

3. Mohd. Nor Aripin (aka Bang Non) - Bang Non is a seasoned nature guide. Eventhough he is unlettered his knowledge of the fauna of the rainforest is astounding. He can practically smell a mousedeer or the python if any is within close range. He will not fail to amuse you with is acute sense of smell and sight. However, when talking to him be sure to increase your volume a little as he is hard on hearing.

 Together we will make your walk in the rainforest and cruise in the mangrove swamp a memorable one.
