The Great Eastern King of the Mountain challenge is the sequel of the successful Genting King of the Mountain event last year that had about 8,500 participants. This year, the event presents again the Viper Challenge that will take place at The Ranch in Gohtong Jaya on Aug. 20, 2016 (Sat), starting 8am to 5pm.

All the huffing and puffing aside, this challenge aims to promote solidarity and community spirit. People from all walks of life are encouraged to take part and it is expected that the number of participants will reach as high as 10,000 this time.

The course spans a 10km route covering a landscape filled with crooked pathways and rugged terrain. Participants will go through 15 challenging manmade obstacles that will have their physical and mental tested, this includes Tarzan Swing, a 12-meter high steel frame that allows participants to make-believe they are Tarzan; Short Circuit, a series of wires that requires participants to crawl underneath it; Horizontal Shuffle, rock climbing on a horizontal wall; and Peg Wall, a test of grip strength that requires one to pull oneself up a 4-meter wall using only pegs.

Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment of Resorts World Genting, is happy to be involved with Viper Challenge again. "It is arguably the best obstacle course event around because it combines great obstacles, good weather and a finishing festival," said Tan, adding that tickets for the challenge last year were sold out within two weeks after it opened for sale, thus, interested participants should act fast.

Furthermore, participants can bring back not only souvenirs like shirts and medals, but more importantly, the forging memories from carrying out the activities. International buskers providing spontaneous performances and a barbecue grill food galore were among the elements that made the event such a success last year—and participants can expect more of such features this year.

Tickets to the Great Eastern King of the Mountain are available on a first come, first served basis. Prices are based on different categories and phases, and some are already sold out.
